Cancer Journey/ HEALTH

Am I Really Cancer Free??

Quick Update:
Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!

I went in early this morning for a Chest MRI and a PET scan.  
My doc just called with the results of the PET scan, which is a very detailed scan, and there is no sign of cancer!  That is truly amazing, and I am so very, very thankful!!!
I am waiting to hear the results of the Chest MRI, but doc does not think it will show anything, since the PET scan was all clear.  We will still move forward with surgery on the 29th, as they want to get rid of all breast tissue to minimize the chance of recurrence, and they will still remove lymph node and test it.  They will test all removed tissue to make sure there are no cancer cells within that did not show up on the scan. 
I am really overwhelmed by this amazing news, and did not expect it, to be honest!!  I thought the best news I would get was that the tumor had shrunk and it was only in a lymph node or two.  I even thought I might hear that it had spread.  Starting out with Grade 3 cancer and a 6 centimeter tumor,  I just didn’t know what to expect, but it really is amazing that just 3 months later we are receiving such great news. 
What I did know, was that God is good no matter news I would get, and that He has been and would be with me every step of the way, no matter where the path would lead.  I was still very fearful, but at most times with a sense of peace, thanks to all the prayers that have gone up for me.  I am so thankful for your prayers, I can’t tell you how much they have helped carry me!!
I will keep you all up to date, especially when surgery time is here.
Love and blessings to you all!!

Her oncologist had only seen results that good one other time in his career! We were also not expecting that news. I pray that you and her will continue with success in your treatments.
