Psalm 121 "I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel (Janet) will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you-the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."
I went in today to see my oncologist at Highlands. We had a list of questions to ask her and I believe she would have stayed in the room with us for hours to answer any question. The new treatment I started 3 months ago is no longer working and things have only gotten worse. As of Tuesday, I will be on a treatment called Topotecan. Last year my surgeon sent off my tumors to see what chemo drugs should work the best against the tumors I have. Doxil, the treatment I have been on, showed to be the most effective one to work, but as we have seen over the past 3 months, it hasn't worked. Topotecan is the next one on the list. I will be going in weekly for treatment for 3 weeks, then take a week off. The other drug that my insurance wouldn't approve, Avastin, still did not get approved but my oncologist has decided to give it to me anyway and try and get a drug rep to take care of the expense. She said it didn't matter, I would be receiving the drug no matter what. I believe that is answered prayer, thank you Jesus!! Avastin will be given every 3 weeks. We discussed Hawaii with her and she said we could still go but her advice would be not to postpone any treatments. She was somber while talking with us today and admitted that she was there to treat me, but ultimately God was going to have to be the One to heal me. My faith remains in Him and I will continue to trust Him completely on this journey.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
