Well, the results are in. My bone biopsy confirms that the cancer in my bones seems to be similar to the cancer in my breast. So it most likely started in my breast and spread from there. It’s possible I may still need to do a lung biopsy to confirm that it is also the same breast cancer there and not a separate lung cancer. We will see. In other news, the biopsy report also had an indicator of the aggressiveness of my cancer. It’s called a Ki-67 factor. Apparently anything over 20% is considered aggressive. My Ki-67 factor was 70%! For some reason when I found out it made me laugh! (Now I know you are probably all concerned about my mental state right now. And maybe you should be!! I do tend to laugh in the face of adversity…or maybe just at inappropriate times.) The verse that came to mind was one that some dear friends gave me on Sunday from Psalm 112: 7-8…
”He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is secure, he will have no fear;
in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.”
The biopsy report does seem rather bleak. But thankfully my God is powerful. He’s the Great Physician and His report supersedes any other! He already knows what’s going on and has everything under control. In the mean time, I am also trying to do my part nutritionally. I’ve adopted a plant-based, no-sugar diet with many supplements. I’m still praying about what else God might want me to do next, and will talk to the doctors more next week.
I hope this latest report doesn’t scare you, but maybe encourages you all to keep praying fervently for my healing. And God will receive all the glory for healing me from such a seemingly dire situation. On that note- I am attending a healing service tomorrow morning @ 9:00 a.m. at Bethel as well as a special inner healing session tomorrow afternoon @ 4:30 p.m. I’m blessed to be able to be here and experience this.
Thank you again for your many prayers and encouraging notes. I reread them many times to encourage myself. May God bless you back in multiple ways!!!
With great love for all of you, Lana
