Results 3/12/13

I just got home from receiving results of CT scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.  The oncologist did find a pelvic cyst but it seems unrelated.

The rest of the scans show the cancer is still confined to my lungs.  Additionally, by the grace of God, the primary tumor has gone down by about 65% and there are no longer "numerous nodules"  throughout my lungs.  According tot the scans, there are now only 2 besides my primary tumor.  One is 3 mm and the other is 4 mm, with the primary tumor  now 1.9 x 1 cm.

After hearing these fantastic results, we met with Piedmont's marketing team to share my story.  They are an awesome group of people and I can't brag enough about the treatment I've had at Piedmont.   Everyone has been so kind and empathetic to my situation.

I am so thankful these scans continue to show improvement.  God is so good!  He and my doctors have been taking great care of me!  I am thankful for all of the continued prayers and support from my family and friends.  God Bless you all!

I will follow up in 6 weeks with a chest x-ray and see how things are going.  We continue to pray the cancer will keep going away!

Please also continue your prayers for Reggie.  He did not have great news.  His tumor is very complicated and requires more scans before treatment even begins.   Left untreated, he would be terminal within a year or two.  I know he can get through this, but he's got a long and hard road ahead.  We are "Tumor Homeys"!

I know I've quoted this verse before, but I feel it is so appropriate for any situation you may be in. When everything seems hopeless, look to Him:

John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world."
