Digging Deeper

It seems even when you may have a respite from tests, treatments, etc. there is always that ONE thing that poses a question mark. Hmmm, that's weird. Your PET scan was normal, your MRI of the brain was normal, even the fluid that was drained from your lung was normal! BUT...your tumor markers are way up!

We have to dig a little deeper and check them again in one month. One month later, they are up AGAIN! Now what?

Dig deeper? Yes. Check them again in one month ( October). This time along with a CT, bone scan, mammogram, PET scan (again) and  another meeting with Dr. A.

 This is where we are now...digging, looking...searching for an answer for why my markers are so high and climbing. If there is an answer at all.

This uncertainty from month to month has led my husband and I to continue living as healthy a life as we can. We also decided to dig deeper ourselves.

To increase our exercise levels, practice very deep stretching and relaxation with Yin Yoga and  taking our nutrition to another level from mostly Vegetarian meals to Vegan.We do what we can with what God has given us the abilities to do.

As for the rest; the Lord reminded me last week during the worship service that "HE is bigger than all of this"!
