Almost done!

The elevated liver enzymes proved to be Lisa’s normal. While they were looking at her liver, they went ahead and looked at all of her organs and found no abnormalities. We continue to see God’s favor in making this journey more encouraging than discouraging.[...]

Stage 1 Breast Cancer

I visited my oncologist today for the first time and learned my DNA test results.  Based on my low score, I will not need radiation or chemo.  Todd and I are so very thankful for this news!  I will start taking a pilll tomorrow that will block hormones that spurred my cancer.  For the next two years, I will visit the oncologist every three months and then transition to every six months for the remaining three years.[...]

First of February Update

Out of the hospital

Lisa left the hospital Thursday morning after being able to get in and out of bed and taking a stroll to the nurses’ station. As most will know, this is more than a normal recovery feat since Lisa’s walker utilizes her upper body muscles. She is at her mother’s in Arlington and will see the doctor next week to check the incisions.[...]

Surgery Day

It’s been a long day, but Lisa is now in her room resting. The surgery went as planned and without problems. The cancer was removed and did not spread outside her breast. Therefore, she will not need radiation or chemo! [...]
