I am sitting here getting my first chemo treatment and figured I would go ahead and update. The biopsy did confirm that the liver spots are breast cancer of the liver. There is nothing quite like the feeling of going from a stage 1 to stage 4 basically overnight. At least I have had a little bit of time to prepare. We will do the chemo plan that was set-up last visit, and hope that it will do some combination of halting, shrinking, and/or removing of the various spots. With it being cancer, it is better that it is metastasized breast cancer since it will respond to the same treatment regardless of the location in the body. Once the 6 chemo treatments are complete, then we will begin attacking it through hormone therapies/treatments as well.
As much as I disliked today's news, at least the waiting is over, and I feel like I really am fighting these stupid cancer cells now with the chemo. I appreciate all the thoughts & prayers over the last couple of weeks, and I hope that you will continue them. I will try to remember and have strength from the following:
Psalms 62:6 - "He only is my rock and my salvation, mynstronghold; I shall not be shaken"
Psalms 46:10 - "Be still and know that I am God"
Joshua 1:9 - "Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you whetever you go"
