All is Well
8/13/12 – I went for my PET scan today. I am still feeling great and very confident that the test results will come back just fine. I continue to follow Weight Watcher and I am down a total of 45 lbs. When it comes to weight loss with someone who is a cancer survivor I am finding that most people’s first reaction is to think that there is something wrong. I can honestly say that I know my weight loss is due to the change in my diet versus being sick and I know this because with everything I went through when was sick I did not experience weight loss due to the treatment or due to the disease. To hit my maximum BMI (Body Mass Index) I need to lose another 8 lbs.
8/20/12 – I met with Dr. Fieldman today (Dr. Goy was busy in the hospital) and she delivered the happy message that All is Well. It seems that the mass that was seen on my CT scan is residual scar tissue. I do not have to get checked again for another 6 months which will be in February. My scans will be on February 11th with me getting my results on February 15th. This will be the first time since I was sick that I will not have to go through scans during the Christmas season. What I blessing that is. I am so thankful for how great God is to me and my family. I am looking forward to singing his praises at the “Celebrating Life and Liberty” event sponsored by the “John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center” which will be held on September 30th. I have decided on what songs I will be performing… but I think I will keep it a surprise.
Psalm 69:30 I will praise the name of God with song, And shall magnify Him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 95:1-6 - O Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods, In whose hand are the depths of the earth; The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. =====If you are interested in reading other blogs similar to this, it would seem that I have drawn the attention of fellow bloggers. They have some pretty cool stuff that you may want to check out:
One blog is a Christian cancer blog. It also provides a list fellow Christians who author blogs detailing their cancer experience. Here is a link: http://advocateofhope.wordpress.com
Another blog/website that contacted me is “Lymphoma Info”. It contains a wealth of information. Here is a link: lymphomainfo.net
My next update will be in February after I get my scan results.
More to come…
