Dr. Wolff called me today with the biopsy results at 2 pm. I wanted to wait and tell the family before I posted the results. He said the 1 cm spot on the liver is malignant, which has has apparently spread from the initial tumor. The pancreas and lymph nodes appear to be okay. These findings call for a change of treatment plans, so we discussed the options. So far I have chosen to have a different chemotherapy regimen administered here at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. Considering how I feel and my present health status it appears that it would be okay to do so. Both Dr. Wolff (Houston) and Dr. Patten (B.R.) will be working together on my treatment plan. Two other options were given, but that would involve either going to Houston every 3 weeks for treatment or having to move to Houston for an experimental treatment. Statistically, the option of staying home for treatment has a higher success rate than the other two. That is not only good to know, but convenient logistically speaking. I will know more about when the treatments will start after the two Dr.s talk. That is it.
The Word of God says that 'by His stripes I am healed'. We believed it before and we believe it now. That has not changed. We are going to believe God, period. We continue to pray. Thanks for all of the prayer and encouragement. God Bless.
P.S. I picked about 5 lbs. of okrathis evening!!! I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I got to the back and started picking. Praise God for the increase.
