Cancer update: 
Met with the oncologist today and it went differently than expected. I was looking forward to setting an appt to have a hysterectomy done but now that isn't going to happen.

I have a large tumor on my cervix that is so wide, it has replaced my cervix, which means surgery is not an option. Instead, they want to do 2 months, 5 days a week of radiation plus some early chemo.

Next step is an MRI and PET scan to see how far the cancer has spread and to determine what stage the cancer is.

I'm not making any decisions as to the course of treatment right now until I get more information. In addition to considering modern treatment, I'll also be looking at holistic and Chinese medicine options. I realize there are pros and cons to all the options. So I remain in limbo for the time being.

This will be a life changing event and a new way of living. Thankfully, I had already lost 35 pounds since August, started eating much less and eating cleaner food, and walking a few times a week. I know there will be some unwelcomed changes coming but I'll just have to get through them with a positive attitude and determination.

I'm grateful to all of you who have shown such care and support. Don't put off regular medical checkups. It could save your life. I'm hoping this was caught in time, but if not, I've lived an amazing and full life! And I'm gonna keep living until my last fighting breath. I don't feel like God is done with me yet and my to-do list is quite long already so lots of living left to be done!
