Scan Results 4/21/17

Well, this is my fifth year into living with lung cancer.  It's been a hell of a roller coaster, that's for sure.

I've had a cold for about 2 weeks, which had us all a little concerned because my cough was bad.  But let me just skip to the point.  My scans were not only stable, but one of the three nodules is now gone!

And even better, my oncologist feels it's fine to begin to do CT scans every 20 weeks instead of every 12 weeks.   PRAISE GOD!

My mom said the best part of the news was on the way home when I said, "I think I'm going to live".   Those of you who have followed me and continue to do so throughout this journey, I can't thank you enough for your prayers.  They have not gone unnoticed and please let me know if you need mine.  I am so freakin grateful today I could scream.   And although I'm so grateful for seeps that survivors guilt.  But, we can't do that to ourselves.  We have to celebrate our own small victories as they come.  Life is to short to be anything but happy and silly.

One of my friends isn't doing so well, so in addition to prayers for me, please pray for her as well.  And Team Draft, thank you for giving us the opportunity to give back to Piedmont the funds raised during the Super Bowl Challenge.  It felt good to give back to the hospital that saved my life.  Didn't get to see Amanda. Brad or Mandy this time but definitely next trip!  I miss them!

Well, that's it for now.   Oh, and thank you God for letting April the giraffe have that baby.  I actually watched it live.  I wasn't sitting there for days, I just woke and it was on the news.  I feel bad for all those people that waited on that.  Anywho, heading back to SSI now  to see my girls and hubby.  As for my cold, I got a prescription and it should be gone soon!  Once again, Praise God.  This is the best news I've had in a long time!  Enjoy the pics.  I love playing with snapchat.


  1. Reading this made me feel so happy for you! I've been following your blog since I was diagnosed in November (2016). I was just awed that people can be stage 4 and live for years with it. I know you've had some horrible months lately so I'm glad that you finally had happy news.

    1. Thank you Alexis. It is a roller coaster for sure. It's always comforting knowing we aren't facing this alone. And for the first time in nearly 5 years, I feel like I'm going to live for a long time. That is priceless
