It was on the 9th that I had a bronchoscopy biopsy, and the oncologist called regarding the result last evening.
Positive — Three cancers were found.
I thought cancerous nodules were found in mediastinal lymph nodes, but the biopsy report I received today said “Lung” core biopsies.
Lymph nodes or /and the lung, either way, this is really discouraging news.
My previous PET scan was in December and just four months after, cancer has grown into three!
The grade, which shows aggressiveness, was 3+, which means the most aggressive.
The cancer finally broke the fort and moved out of the bay in spite of two years of the treatments.
The sub doctor recommended me T-DM1 as the next med, which is a clinical trial med called a “Super Herceptin” : It is supposed to be much more effective than regular Herceptin, which I have been on.
Last time when I had a trouble with skin rash caused by Tykerb and not sure if the medicine was compatible with me or not, Dr. Glaspy actually recommended T-DM1. Yet that time I was disqualified from the protocols.
May I be candidate this time?
Or even if I am, what if T-DM1 fails, also?
I knew the biopsy result would be positive, but the word “Metastasis” on the report brought me new fear.
Then George said,
“ Don’t look at the storm. Jesus said many times in the Bible ‘Fear Not!’ we have to walk trusting in Him. I am with you all the way.”
At the church people put their hands on me and prayed for me.
Cancer is frightening me, but our God is bigger than cancer and He is on the throne!
Whether I live or die, my life is in His hand and the word of God, the Bible, is in my hand.
I can’t surrender, but have to live well until the end!
