A glimpse into our lives, our joys...and my battle with cancer!

It came in a fortune cookie...it must be true!
Larry and I drove to Spokane this week to meet with my surgical oncologist as a follow up to my CT scan. After the appointment, we went to PF Changs for dinner. Here was my dessert. It made me smile...and couldn't have been more perfect timing. My stomach was in knots...and I was nervous about what the Dr. would see on my scan.
I was also quite worried about the quality of the ct scan, because I had vomited up all of the baruim that I was supposed to drink. The doctor said that it wasn't a great picture, but he was NOT able to see any sign of new growth so far. I am very relieved at that, but not completely comfortable. (as I explained in the previous post.) He reminded me of how aggressive I have been in treatment and emphasized that we have to have faith that the Heated Chemo...as well as the IV chemo will work! I have faith...not in chemo, but in my Heavenly Father. He knows that the greatest desire of my heart is to raise my girls...I know he is aware of me. He hears my prayers (and all of our prayers). I feel his comfort daily and I feel good about the outcome. I have no idea what lies ahead...but I am doing ALL that I can do on my end to fight this!!
