Never has a word meant so much!
Psalm 103:2-3 (The Message)
1-2 O my soul, bless God. From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
don’t forget a single blessing!
3-5 He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.
God makes everything come out right;
he puts victims back on their feet.
My doctor came in and I said I hear the report is good. She looked at me and said….”it is VERY good! It is amazing!” I can’t rewrite the repost but almost everything has resolved. I have very small residual tumors in each breast but virtually everything else is resolved.
diffuse infiltrating enhancement….resolved
regional enhancement left breast…..resolved
“Near complete resolution of bilateral areas of normal enhancement in both breasts with small enhancing nodule remaining in the upper/outer quadrant of the right breast.”
I certainly don’t understand most of what it says in this report but my doctor said she called the radiologist to be sure she really was sure…..but virtually everything is gone! My lymph nodes look normal…..there’s virtually nothing left and the small tumors left look like what they say is “residual!”
I’m to overwhelmed to say a lot tonight but I’m feeling pretty good to say the least:) I meet with the surgeon next week to discuss what kind of surgery. My oncologist said she doesn’t see how I can save the right breast. The skin is still thick and evidence of it having been diseased is pretty apparent. I will most likely err on the side of caution and do bilaterals….but I guess we could consider a lumpectomy on the left. I doubt we will go that route. Mastectomies are a way to ensure this doesn’t come back.
