Thanks for being so patient today. I didn't get my nap during my petscan FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, so I had to get home and get one.
First, I would love to thank Healthline for naming my blog as one of the top 10 lung cancer blogs for the second year in a row. It's such an honor! You can read many others by clicking the link for "Healthline".
So, this is going to be short and sweet. God is so good! My scans not only came back showing no active cancer, but my oncologist said the area radiated in 2013 is starting to clear up. I did have to do a pulse ox test because I had some trouble breathing last night, but I blame that on anxiety. The longer I'm on Tarceva, the more anxious I get that it will quit working. I've been on it since January 2013! I am really good at handing that worry over to God, but last night I felt like I couldn't. He showed me!
I took a few pics so you could see the crazy petscan contrast workings and my "official report" since the scan was done a few hours apart from my appointment time.
Thank you for your continuous prayers. I am so grateful that I cannot express in words how immensely blessed I am.
We will be in Atlanta until Sunday as Karley and Livi are participating in the Battle of Atlanta karate tournament tomorrow. I'm praying for them both. Mama worries when they spar (by "they" I mean all of the GIMAA kids for those who over analyzed this sentence. I'm not trying to take away people's children). It's hard to watch.
Once again, God bless you all, and please keep all of the people involved in the Orlando tragedy in your prayers. Life is so unpredictable. Hold your loved ones close. Tomorrow is never promised for any of us, not even me. Finally, thank you God for this time you continue to bless me with and all of the family and friends that so graciously lift me up in their prayers to you. Amen!
