Two days before we went to camp, my Plan B oncologist (the one I see when/if I can't get to MDA in Houston) discovered a suspicious spot during a routine follow-up physical exam.  He actually referred to it as a "nodule", which I think in medical speak covers a multitude of possibilities.  Today I had a CT-guided biopsy of that nodule so we can find out what it is and what to do about it.  The procedure went well, except for the part when the radiologist told me that there were several spots of concern.  I might have panicked except for two things:  1.  I knew that God is in control of everything, however many nodules there may be, and 2.  The sedation meds kicked in just when the doctor finished his last sentence. 

The radiology report will be completed within 24 hours, but the pathology results will take a couple of days.  I plan to meet with my doctor on Thursday morning to get those results.

Friends and strangers alike are praying faithfully for favorable results, and I am grateful.   

"When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You."  Psalm 56:3

I love it when you write. It helps me feel and it also helps me pray for you. We miss you.
As you have, I am now experiencing a "plan b." I might should reread that book.
