Yesterday I was on a high after completing two doctor’s appointments which I had been dreading. They ended up not being bad at all. There were many God moments sprinkled throughout the day, from seeing my friend in the waiting room, to getting my second appointment bumped up two hours and to a caring nurse scheduling the same anesthesiologist for my second surgery as my 1st surgery after I jokingly requested him. So it came as a complete surprise when I got a call from U of M last night. The gynecological tumor board is recommending excision of more tissue from the 1st surgical area because the margins around the tumor were not completely free of disease. If that was not enough of a blow, I then learned I am not a candidate for the Gleevec medication, which is the only medication known to hold off this cancer. I was devastated to say the least. However, it is amazing what time AND sleep can do. I awoke this morning to Chris Tomlin’s song lyrics in my head “My soul magnifies the Lord. He has done great things for me – great things for me”. Over and over it played in my mind bringing comfort and reminding me “God is good all the time”. He will see me through whatever comes my way. I am asking for prayers for discernment for the doctors and myself regarding whether this is the path I need to take. The U of M doctor and the Grand Rapids doctor are suppose to discuss this recommendation as they are not in agreement. I pray God would be at the center of this discussion and there would be agreement to help guide me.
