Just wanted to let everyone know what is going on with me. I got the results from my PET scan. They weren't great, but could have been worse. The nodule in my right lung showed active cells, which is most likely malignant. Will have it biopsied tomorrow (Fri). The scan also showed that I didn't have anything anywhere else, so if it is cancer it hasn't spread to any other organs or brain. The nodule had also shrunk .4 cm between the CT scan and the PET scan. I won't have any results from the biopsy until Monday, at which time I guess we will discuss a plan of attack. Could still use your prayers. I am praying that they can just remove the nodule, do a little radiation or chemo, and be one of the 10% that live over 5 yrs after being diagnosed, and be cancer free. After all, God does provide miracles.
Hugs to you all.

Marilyn, my prayers and thoughts are with you. You have early detection on your side; you have no signs of it migrating elsewhere (big, huge happy dance for that!!) and you have a lot of people praying for you.

Take heart, for 18 years I have been living with active cancers that every doctor said would kill me within 6 months. Do what they tell you, support your body's immune system, but never underestimate the power of sheer stubbornness! God will work miracles, but He expects us to do our part too. And if you ever need to just shake your fist and rail at the wind......pm me, I can give you pointers. ;) Best medicines I have ever found to work 100% with no side effects........laughter and love.:icon_hug:

And if anyone is deserving of a miracle, you are. My continued prayers that this, too, shall pass.

Marilyn, I some how missed this. I want you to know that I am in agreement with you that you will be one of the 10% for sure. I am also praying for wisdom from the medical staff, that they do only what they need to do and they will know exactly what that is. Keep strong in the Lord. He has a plan for your life and it is a plan for good.
