Possibly Metastasis

I finally received the result of the PETCT scan I had last week.

Bad news:

“ Interval development of mediastinal hypermetabolic lymphadenopathy, most likely metastatic disease.”

Since my oncologist is on maternity leave, a different doctor suggested that I see a lung specialist to have biopsy.

It has been almost two years since breast cancer diagnosis.

It has been a year and half since mastectomy.

It has been a year since the last time I found cancer in the left arm lymph nodes.

I received 4week radiation and have been still on the 3rd regimen of two antibody drugs which I started last March.

In spite of all those, is cancer still growing?

I e-mailed Dr. Glaspy at UCLA to let him know this bad news.

It is not definite yet, but because I have experienced shortness of breath, sudden cramps on my back, and chest pain continually, I had wondered if something was wrong with me.

As the time went by, my stomach started twisting and had diarrhea.

I prayed with George.

God has raised me up each time when I got dismayed facing new fears.

 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”-Proverb 3:5-

Holy Spirit, please come quickly!

  1. Dearest Kathy! I’m so sad to hear your news today! When I got home tonight, I went to my Bible and read one of my favorite verses – Philippians 4:5 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” We love you so and George too. We lift you up to Him that the Holy Spirit will come to you and heal you, that He will provide you with whatever resources you require and we give thanks for the blessing of having you both in our lives! Amen. Love, Karen

  3. Dearest Kathy, I’d like to share this bible verse with you – Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.(Ephesians 3:17-19)I will pray for you.MiYoung

  4. Dear Kathy, My heart grew heavy when my sister called me this morning about your diagnoses. The Lord has brought you to mind as I walkeded through this day and prompted me to lift you and George in prayer each time. Words are hard to find but my heart aches for you as you seek council on your next steps. I love 2 Corintians 4:16-17…do not loose heart! We serve a mighty God as you know. May it be well with your soul
    Praying for His peace to wash over the two of you. I know that God is giving you the strength you need for each day. I send my love to you and will keep in touch. In His Precous love, Donna Porter (Lee’s sister)
