The doc says there is NO sign of lymphoma from my biopsy!
The only thing scarier than finding out you have cancer, is finding out you have cancer again. I am so thankful and blessed that this was just a scare. Although, we are still not sure what exactly the little “spot” on my scan is, I can find enough comfort in the fact that it isn’t Hodgkins. Dr. Morgan says that we will just keep a close eye on things and repeat the PET scan in February to make sure nothing fishy is going on.
So basically, I am off the hook and able to continue my plans for going to college next semester and so on. I am reminded though, not to take my remission for granted for even a second because I am so fortunate to have made it here.
I can already tell how I have grown from my experience with cancer because having waited for results from scans before (aka last summer), I knew exactly how to handle it this time by making that exchange with God: I give Him my problem, and He gives me His peace. (Phil 4:6-7) I am relieved, but not surprised. I know who has His hand on my life, and what He is capable of.
Thank you again for the power of your prayers. I will continue to provide updates when necessary.
IN A NUTSHELL
- I am still cancer free! Praise God!
- I will have a follow-up scan in February
- Thank you for keeping up with me and praying. Love you all
