Cancer Update...

Tom doesn't have cancer...anywhere!  Not in his Brain, Liver, Bones or Lung. He does have an infection in his lung that has been difficult to eliminate. It causes him to cough repeatedly throughout the day and night. {If you missed the previous posts about this...read them HERE.} Everything that the doctors in the ER saw in the x-Ray, MRI and Cat Scan is STILL there
but it isn't CANCER! But based on the preliminary results, they diagnosed Lung Cancer with Mets to the Liver. And the oncologist suspected...
it was in his Bones and Brain, too. But after a multitude of additional scans, MRI's, x-rays and biopsies...it turned out that the spots on the liver are hemangiomas {nothing serious} and just Infection in the lung {being treated with antibiotics and a follow up MRI later this week}. Nothing in the brain and nothing in the bones.
Can you believe this?
The Doctor who did the biopsy called here last night and gave the results of the biopsy to both of us on the phone.
Now, we just have to wait until he's finished his 14 days of anti-biotics and another Cat Scan to see what's going on with that infection...then I will update again. Keep praying! ♥

  2. Jan,
    Just as you have said prayers have been answered and I thank our precious Heavenly Father for that. I will continue to pray and think positive thoughts that your life will be restored to wholeness once more and that your worries will be put in God's comforting hand so that you and Tom can embrace life with a joyful heart.
    Many Blessings,
    Jemma
