Soooo.......I will be starting chemotherapy this week. He said something about doing two cycles of it, which means approximately two months. Then, we will re-evaluate after two months for the surgery.
Even though he told me in our appointment on Thursday that our initial plan had a higher survival rate, this is the direction we are going at this time. Hopefully my body will respond well to chemo so that the doctors aren't forced into a surgery if the timing isn't right.
For anyone (including myself) who was asking the Lord to dissolve the blood clots over the weekend: we don't even know if there are clots in my lungs at this point! The doctor went back to the clots in my arms, which were there last week, and used them as the example of my current clotting risk.
I will still see the pulmonologist tomorrow. Wednesday, instead of surgery prep, I will be receiving a chemo port and a biopsy.
On we go. No faith lost. Ugh, though.
Today's news may not be my favorite, so how about a couple of pictures from yesterday? Have you ever seen a cuter Primary class? I love them.
This beautiful baby was blessed in California yesterday. I love Berrett Walter Dibb! He is my newest nephew. I also love that his face here shows how I think I felt when I got off the phone with the doctor today. All is well (for me, and for BWD)
