The surgery last Wednesday was a great success. Praise God that the surgeon was able to take out the whole tumor. He also took a lymph node to have tested for cancer cells. He said that the lymph node looked good in the microscope and felt positive about the day. Praise GOD!
We have been waiting for a call about that lymph nodes since Friday. I've been battling bad thoughts all weekend. Especially since a nurse told me that they had the results, but that the doctor had to read them to me. He was in surgery all day Friday and Monday so I had to wait for him. Satan had all kinds of fun planting bad thoughts into my head about that!
Tonight the doctor finally called. And I wish that I could tell you good news. Unfortunately my lymph node had melanoma cancer cells in it.
This battle is not over.
Tomorrow my oncologist and my surgeon will have a pow wow. And I should have a PET scan this week then we go from there.
That's all we know for now.
1) This news was a giant punch in the gut. I really thought that the results would come back negative. Please pray that I continue to keep positive thoughts and stay grounded in the Truth. Overall we continue to feel very positive about everything and know that God plan's in ALL of this is perfect. I've said it before, but I will not let cancer or Satan or any bad news rob me of the Joy I have in Christ and all the blessings he has given me.
2) Continue to pray for my family as we continue to battle this one.
3) Pray for the doctors, and tests, and for my body to heal from this last surgery. If I'm going to need another surgery I have to be healed up first.
