UPDATE ON CANCER
On January 16 I had another CT Scan to see if the cancer has spread in my body. This week I met with three different oncologists and they came to a united conclusion on several issues. The scan showed the mass in the lung was now 2.8 cm as compared to 2.6 cm in the previous scan. They believe there is no change in the mass at all and that the lung is stable. The radiologist noted a lymph node that seemed to have a small growth in the chest and all the doctors agreed this is not of concern at this point. We praise the Lord for this good news.
He also reported a mass in the pancreas of 2.5 cm. It is possible that this is another “primary” cancer that is not connected to the metastatic bladder cancer. Another CT has been scheduled to examine only the pancreas for Feb 21 to determine if this is a new cancer. I will again see the oncologist on Mar. 1. Please pray with us as to what the Lord has in store for us through these tests.
