Big Day

Today I will have my full body PET scan done as well as the CT of my abdomen, pelvis, & chest.  These tests are so important because they will determine if the cancer has metastasized. The tests will start around 12:30pm (PST). We'd appreciate all the prayers we could get regarding these tests. I know God is on our side and his will, will be done.

On Wednesday at 10am I have an appointment with Dr. Chala who will be my Chemotherapy doctor. Please pray God gives him the knowledge in formulating my chemo so I may be healed. We are also working on getting a second opinion from a Dr. at City of Hope.  We're praying God gives us direction on which Dr. to chose and which one will be right for my treatments. Please join us in prayers for this as well. I pray the Lord leads us and gives us a sign in choosing the right doctor.

Friday morning I will be going back up to USC Medical Center to have the mediport placed in my chest. I will be receiving my chemo through this instead of burning out my veins every time treatment needs to be done. Its a normal full on surgery and I'll be put under general anesthesia.

Please pray for the tests, procedures, and Dr. selections I will under go this week.

Again I cant thank everyone enough for all the love & support my family, huband and I have been given. It is such a blessing and is really helping us through this storm that shall one day pass.

I love ya'll,

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

  5. Hello Vanessa, My name is Cristie and I am Joseph's mom, Lucille's grandson. I want you to know that you are definately in our prayers, our church is praying for you and please let Lucille know or me know if you need anything ever. Be strong in the Lord and I see that you have a lot of spiritual support. God loves you and is going to work a miracle through this time of trial. Know you are more than a conqueror!!!! Amen and when I was in the hospital dying of congestive heart failure, God told me that everything that has a name must bow down to Him. I am not sure what type of cancer this is but it has to bow down to the power of God. Be strong Joseph says hi and he loves you. Be blessed. Let us know how everything goes. Love always Cristie Appleton
