I just wanted to give you a quick update before I turn off the lights and mosey up the stairs to crawl into bed. I talked to my oncologist tonight. We haven't actually seen each other in person since the day before my biopsy, but we talk on the phone regularly. I like that about her. When she calls, it's usually around 8pm, or so. Her personal time.
Basically, the new cancer is much more receptive to hormones than the original tumor last year (from 11% ER+ last year to 48% ER+ now, for you medical sorts). Because of this link to hormones, I will be having a hysterectomy as soon as I am fully recovered from my surgery last week. I promise I'm not one of those crazy people who has surgery for fun. Up until 15 months ago, I had never had any sort of surgery or stayed in the hospital for any reason. I am quite healthy, mostly. At this point, I still have a drain tube from last week's surgery (sorry if that was too much information). Please pray that this tube will stop draining soon, so that I can go back in for another surgery soon.
I have an appointment with a radiation oncologist on 1/26. At that time, we'll get radiation up and going.
So, things are moving right along.
Keep those prayers coming! Y'all, we feel covered. We feel strong and healthy. We feel deeply blessed and incredibly hopeful in the Lord.
Will you pray this with us?
Pray that the Lord would give us and show us His absolute perfection. His very best. And, pray that when He does that we would exalt Him and praise Him and boldly share of His power and might. Pray for only correct decisions (both our own and the doctors'). Pray for complete healing and divine health for me.
You are to be commended for your intercessions. I'm telling you, we feel them. They sustain us.
Good night, my friends.
