I know I just posted some good news yesterday morning about my renal function improving a bit. I’m in the middle of the season of having my cancer re-staged. If you are, or were ever a cancer patient, you realize how frightening these tests can be. They will tell you if you are in remission, or heading down a horrible path. In a way you get used to it. . . to a point.
So, I had a group of cancer staging tests last Friday and they are just trickling in. There is some early indication (increase light chains and increased M-spike) that my cancer is starting to flare. Which of course is not good news. We will know more when the rest of the blood tests come in by Friday and when I get the results of my bone marrow biopsy. The biopsy is on Thursday. If it does look like it is flaring, it would mean I need to change therapies.
So, while I’m not too anxious, of course I want to live and I want to live without suffering. So, of course I want these tests to be good. If you pray, add this to your list.
