Update: August 12, 2016
I got the call from my GI Doctor today and the 2nd biopsy came back clean (yay!), which means 1 of 2 things..
1). There may have been some cross-contamination from the tumor.
2). They successfully removed potentially cancerous tissue surrounding the 5 polyps.
…Either way, this is good news to me!
We can now focus our attention solely on treating/removing the tumor.
My treatment plan now rests in the hands of my oncologist and my surgeon as they review my charts. I will meet with both of them next Tuesday and Wednesday.
For now, my heart is lifted, even if just momentarily. I know this journey will not be an easy one, but I’m finding my hope & peace in the shelter of the Almighty God!
In the last two weeks, I have experience more emotions than I ever thought possible, but I’ve witnessed an amazing outpouring of love. I can’t stop crying as I read all of your posts, stories, texts, encouragement, prayers, etc. I wish I could personally tell you how much you all mean to me. Thank you!
I will continue to update all of you as things unfold. In the meantime, your continued prayers for our family is so greatly appreciated!
