Updates

My sister met with a specialist yesterday and she has 4 small tumors on her liver. The doctor does not believe they are malignant because past blood tests have not shown any markers indicating that. He has ordered more blood tests to double check, though. If they are clear, he plans to do another MRI in 6 months and every 6 months for 3 years to see if there is any growth. If they increase at all, they will do a biopsy. These were found because she has been having some chest pain and they were running lots of tests. She does have some arterial disease which can be controlled with medication. Thanks for all the prayers that have been offered on her behalf. We feel a little better about things now.

I will pick my two winner at 3 pm.

I am so glad to hear your sister and you are feeling better. I know these things can be tough, especially when you are waiting on answers. I continue to pray for you both.
