Well, it’s the end of January 2012 and it has been a little over 3 months since my surgery. I feel great. Pathology report after the surgery proved to be negative for cancer and positive for me. Praise God!!!
Two weeks ago I met the oncologist for the first time after having a post surgery cat scan. He seemed pleased (in general) with the cat scan report . Although there is a lymph node that is 1.1cm, .1 over what they would like to see. I go back in 2 months to have another cat scan to see if it grew, stayed the same or shrunk. My surgeon said in his experience with surgeries, it’s not uncommon for lymph nodes to grow in size after surgery. In most cases it is because of the surgery. He doesn’t seem too concerned. But if it is cancer, I will need chemo. Overall he is optimistic and pleased. So am I. I am completely at peace and glad my life is back to normal. I am totally and completely in God’s hands, as we all are.
I am not going to worry about it. God has given me peace. If you have read my blog from the beginning, you know that I am not afraid to leave this world. “I wake up to the doctor, or I wake up to the Great Physician that is Jesus”. It’s a win/win situation. That can be anyone of us who are in Christ on any given day. We are all on borrowed time from the Lord.
For those who have prayed for me, keep on praying. Trust me, He has heard you throughout all of this. I have seen the hand of God holding mine throughout this whole thing. God created the heavens and the earth and holds all things together, not the cancer. He is in control, not the cancer and He counts the number of hairs on our heads, not the cancer. Remember that when you go through any tough situation. He is the one seated on the Throne ruling, not our problems.
