So, Jan’s tonsil fragment was not malignant, so we don’t know where the primary site is.  It isn’t showing up on any of her biopsies, except in some lymph nodes on the left (all of which appear intact on the pathology report…that is, they haven’t spilled out locally).

Therefore, it will be a combination of chemotherapy and radiation, then frequent follow-up for a primary site to manifest itself.  Then, possibly more surgery.

I knew most of it already.  I was happy the nodes were intact, and had prayed hard for good news today.  I feel as if I received some, and I’m glad we now have a plan.

Still terrified, but confident that God will provide.  We are hopeful and prayerful and believe in healing miracles.  In Psalm 103, it says it is God ‘who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.’

Please send up prayers for us, and if you have any encouraging success stories, we’ll take them!  God is bigger than unknown diagnoses and metastases.

It’s the waiting, the terrible waiting (coupled with the imagination of a physician/writer) that is the worst.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
