Debbie's Latest Update
Wednesday, April 1, 2020, Quick Update: First Lady Calvary Chapel Rialto:
Last Praise Report Wednesday, March 25 We received a letter from Health Net that they have reversed their decision of denial of her treatment of radiation. They have approved her treatment.
Wednesday, April 1, 2020: Debbie received her first radiation treatment today. The Radiation Oncologist met with us this morning and said that she would have to receive 10 treatments instead of 5 treatments. She studied the location of the spot on her spleen and after crunching the numbers she deemed it too dangerous to do 5 treatments (much stronger) than to use less over 10 treatments. There is a real danger of damage to the stomach. With her loss of 50 pounds, the danger is too great. She started her first radiation treatment today with her treatments to be finished on Tuesday, April 14. She is taking several different medications to help with possible nausea associated with the radiation because of the location to her stomach.
Last week her Oncologist ordered a CT Scan to determine why her stomach area is still extremely irritated. She eats then becomes instantly sick. This has been an ongoing problem for the last 7 months. The Scan revealed that her Gallbladder since last August continues to be inflamed and extremely irritated. The oncologist has determined that her Gallbladder is the problem and needs to be removed. (We are rejoicing that the root cause has been discovered) The Radiation Oncologist today said that the radiation is the priority in removing the last possible traces of cancer, then in a few weeks addressing her Gallbladder.
This last week has been an amazing week in that the insurance reversing their decision not to cover the treatment to already starting the treatment. The discovery of the cause of Debbie’s constant irritation of her stomach to finally isolating it to the Gallbladder with relief in sight.
We are rejoicing today. Thank you for your constant prayers. I know that it has been through the constant faithful prayers of God’s people that have brought about the answers to all these prayers.
Please pray for Debbie as she goes through these next 9 treatments. The doctor said there is a possibility of her suffering some nausea as a result of the radiation, but today she is feeling great.
Please pray that God would give wisdom to both oncologists as they determine when she should resume her infusions as part of her maintenance.
Wisdom to the surgeon as to when she can have her Gallbladder removed so she can resume putting her weight back on.
Pray for opportunities to share with so many hurting people that God has seen fit to place in our paths. We love our doctors and medical staff!
“As for God, His way is blameless;
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
31 For who is God, but the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God,
32 The God who girds me with strength
And makes my way blameless?
33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet,
And sets me upon my high places.
34 He trains my hands for battle,
So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation,
And Your right hand upholds me;
And Your gentleness makes me great.
36 You enlarge my steps under me,
And my feet have not slipped.”
In Him, Pastor Terry
