I found out the best news I could have possibly heard today. I went and spoke with my oncologist this morning and I asked her what kind of number she wanted to see at the end of my second cycle of chemo (which I'm currently prepping for). She said she wanted to see my tumor markers down around 300. Now, keep in mind that when I started chemotherapy, my numbers were in the upper 3000's so I had a pretty big hill to climb. I found out today though that after only 1 cycle, my numbers had dropped to 380. That being said, it looks like I will not have to got through stem cell chemo.
This is just proof that God does answer prayers. I have been praying constantly, and I know that I have a prayer army spread out all over the country lifting me up in prayer. So, I want to take a second and thank you, for everything you have done. I wish I could have the opportunity to meet the people (especially the ones I don't know) who have been praying for me. Maybe one day I will.
I am so thankful for what God has done for me. I know that sounds weird saying that I am thankful for cancer, but I am. Having lived with cancer the past 8 months has helped me to learn alot about myself. It has also strengthened my relationship with Dianne, and brought us both closer to God. Please continue to pray that God will lay his healing hand upon me and continue to watch over myself and Dianne.
I know tonights blog may sound a little jumpy, but I was given a pretty big dose of benadryl about an hour ago and I am struggling to stay awake right now, so, good night.
