"Could be good luck, could be bad!"

No flowery words or metaphors are coming to my mind today as I am swimming mentally and physically in the new medications from the Chemo session, but I know a lot of you are wondering about the results of the MRI scan that was taken one week ago.

As always, Dr. Stinnett was incredibly compassionate and professional in delivering the information from McKay Dee’s Radiation department (Dr. Babcook). Before he gave us the results I couldn’t help but see a look of concern flash across his face as he tried to lessen the blow. He said, “You remember from the beginning, these tumors can do one of three things, they can get better, stay the same, or get worse. Your tumor has stayed the same!”

I can’t lie, my heart sunk into my stomach and I swallowed back the tears. Dr. Stinnett went on to talk about treatment options and our shared optimism. The fact of the matter is that my tumor has not responded in a normal fashion right from the beginning. It has invasive and non-invasive cells, so in the wisdom filled words of my sweet father-in-law, “Could be good luck, could be bad!”

Thank you for your continue love, support, and prayers. I know that God is all-powerful and all-knowing. He is in charge of this process; not me, not the doctors, and certainly not the cancer itself and I know He loves me—in that way I am more than OK.

I will write more later….Love,
