Now that chemotherapy is done, the big question is: What next? Well...tomorrow, July 27, I will have a PET scan done in Dallas. Dr. M has heard my concerns and agreed that every other scan on my new imaging schedule (every 3 months) will be a PET. The technology is more sophisticated, the results are more reliable, and the testing is much easier on me than the conventional CT scan. My insurance company is unhappy, but that's OK. Sorry, Aetna.
Then, on August 2, we meet with Dr. M. He will give us the results of the PET scan and make his recommendations for what to do next. We fully expect the scan to be clear--if it's not, then what good has all this chemo done?--but the expectations for the future are uncertain.
Of course, I am asking God for healing, as I have done every day for the last five months. I believe that God can remove all traces of this disease from my body, and keep it away. But if there's one thing I've learned through all of this, it is that God can still show Himself through me--regardless of my circumstances--if I will simply step aside and allow Him to work.
More of Him, less of me. Will you pray with me?
