I am thankful for Jesus and the eternal and present hope that He gives me. I am thankful for a loving family, for the most dedicated and loving wife imaginable; for children and grandchildren who love Jesus and have such good hearts. Wonderful kids!
We saw the doctor on Monday. The CT showed no tumors and no growth in the lung nodules That's good. However, my abdomen is swollen with fluid again and the Ca 19-9 marker is elevated all the way back up to 30,000. Not good. He laid out 3 options:#1 - there is 1 more drug they could give me, but he said it is "nasty". #2 - a clinical trial at Sarah Cannon, or #3 - do nothing (in which case he estimated 6 more months of life). We added option #4 - a natural solution called the Budwig diet. It is flax seed oil emulsified (with an immersion blender) with cottage cheese. That makes the oil more easily absorbed and the Omega 3 oil strengthens healthy cells to fight off the cancer cells.
We have a first hand account from the best friend of our friend who's marker fell from very high to normal in just a few weeks, and it has remained low. I have been on it 1 week now. You combine it with healthy eating.....avoid sugar, animal fats, processed food, etc. We are praying that the Lord will bless this and make it effective.
I will give another blood sample on Dec. 4 and see the doctor on Dec. 10. Please pray that the marker test is reduced, not elevated.
I will call the doctor Monday to schedule an out patient procedure to drain fluid again. Please pray that it will not return rapidly as it did this time.
Thank you so much for your prayers.
In All Things, Give Thanks.
