Wow....This is amazing!

Remember at my last doctor's appointment the news was not good. The clinical trial drug was not working and they were going to start me on a traditional chemo with a booster. I was to wait until I heard from them to tell me when to start.
This past week has been difficult. Although I KNOW I am in God's hands, Christmas is an emotional time and full of memories....well, let's just say my poor hubs has put up with a lot of emotions from me.
I get a phone call this morning from my doctor's office. Answering it, I hear MY DOCTOR. In my head I am thinking, oh, this can't be good.
Well, long story short, the radiology center sent the wrong scan. They did not compare the most recent scan. THERE is STABILITY. NO NEW GROWTH. The drug is working. I don't understand totally why there was confusion. That will be found out more later....but, can you say Merry Christmas Ceekay????
So, tomorrow, I will be in the chemo chair. Getting the same trial for another 3 months. This time there should be some improvement.
I just had to share! God is so good. I am sooooooo happy!

Why are we always surprised by God's greatness? He must just shake his head and chuckle at our amazement when He orchestrates the miraculous! Of course you already know how thrilled I am! Sandy and I have talked about it all day today and whispered countless thank you's above. I'll talk to you tomorrow when you get home. We're a couple of tough old birds, ya know?!
