Jan's oncologist from M.D. Anderson called this morning and the results of the PET CT scan show a combination of necrosis (dead tissue) and new tumor. While this is not the results we were looking for, there are still many options. God is in control here. It is my desire that I can Praise God no matter what the circumstance. There is so much to be thankful for.
Jan has been off treatment now for two weeks and her counts are recovering, so she is stronger and she is ready to fight until this tumor is gone.
Jan, Gerald and our Mother will be leaving Tuesday for M.D. Anderson. Jan has an appointment scheduled for Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. to discuss new treatment options. We've been keeping up with treatment options and clinical trials for GBM. I will getting this information to Jan, Gerald and Mom tonight and also looking for anything else I might have missed.
I would ask that you pray for safe travels, wisdom in choosing the correct treatment plan, wisdom for Dr. Gilbert in what he offers to Jan, as well as wisdom as they all discuss these options.
Pray that our family will once again join forces and do what we can to help Jan as she starts on another phase of this journey. Please pray for PEACE and UNDERSTANDING. You don't want the people you care about to suffer. We trust God in His plans even though we don't understand what they may be at this time. He is much wiser than we are and He can see the bigger picture.
Matthew 18:19-20 “I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. 20 For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”
"Faith is the belief that God is real and that God is good… It is a choice to believe that the one who made it all hasn’t left it all and that he still sends light into the shadows and responds to gestures of faith…Faith is the belief that God will do what is right God says that the more hopeless your circumstances, the more likely your salvation. The greater your cares, the more genuine your prayers. The darker the room, the greater need for light. God’s help is near and always available, but it is only given to those who seek it."
