Update…

There has been one last worrisome factor in my breast surgery saga, and since many of you have asked me to keep you updated here goes. Nearly 6 years ago when I had my stroke, scans showed that I had some nodules in my lungs, but at that time they ruled them as benign entities. Then when they did a chest x-ray prior to my breast surgery in April, they noticed them again and ordered a subsequent CAT-Scan and PET-Scan which the oncologist has now compared to the ones from 6 years ago. And what she sees is that some of the old ones have disappeared, the rest of the old ones that have remained are the same, but there is a new 1.7 mm one in the upper lobe of my right lung. (Incidentally the 9mm ductal carcinoma was in my right breast.) And so we talked about it and what it means and what to do about it. Right now she believes it just needs to be observed as it is very small, the sugar intake for the PET-Scan was not very high, and there is a risk when doing a biopsy that the lung can collapse. So since my next appointment with her was to be in August, she is going to order a CAT-Scan to be done shortly before that appointment so she can see if it is enlarging or remaining the same. Given that my family and I have decided that it is the prudent thing to do at this time. Nevertheless keep those prayers coming though as this will be a very long, hot summer in many ways. Despite this valley of concern I have to walk again, I know I’m not alone and I praise God for all the ways that He loves me and cares for me. The Lord holds Creation and all of His children in a cocoon of light like the petals of a sunflower surround the center of its being. Therefore we must celebrate our days and the blessing of life regardless of how long or short it is.

  2. Thank you for the update. It sounds like you are well-informed and I’m thankful you have good support. I’ll be praying for your wellness and that the entity in question stays the same, shrinks, or disappears like the others did. Angel hugs coming your way! I think that’s the most beautiful sunflower I’ve ever seen! ❤

  4. You’re so right. It’s important for us to not take anything for granted. Especially life. It’s so precious. I’m so grateful to Jehovah God everyday, despite the trials and tribulations we face. He always helps us through whatever we go through.
