Tracy, I am sending you one location about PET scan
(Positron Emission Tomography). There are many useful links off of
It does indeed sound like it is time for a full body PET scan. Also
have you had a bone scan done?
Tracy, I am so sorry that this is rushing up on you like this and I know
that they have you in fast gear.. Please allow me to help you to research
all that I can.
You know that you will be in my prayers as I am adenocarcinoma with local
lymph node only involvement,one year survivor
lung cancer and had one lung removed.
Tracy, you said that you felt that your doctor would see this as a death
sentence in his eyes... Forgive me, but if he does.. find another
doctor! They are not there to see death sentences. A good oncologist
will research and try to help you in everyway possible, including faith.
Tracy, do not give up... Have you read Greg Anderson's books, "Fifty
Essential Things to Do When the Doctor Says it is Cancer" and written as a
parable of sorts, but very good is the "Cancer Conqueror".
Do your research, go to DisneyWorld with your darling daughter, work, but
not to the exclusion of the journey that you are on.. This is the most
important journey that you will travel my dear, it is the road to wellness
called the cancering journey..
Make the most of every single day Tracy. It is the quality of life
that will live on in our hearts and the hearts of everyone else. Believe
God for a miracle and never stop hoping.
We have lost members of our forum to cancer and some are very ill right
now. I just found a quote the other day that said: "Even though God is the wind beneath your
wings, you still have to do alot of flapping".
Fly my friend and soar like an eagle... Search
high and low for the journey of your life and stay open to the inner spirit
which will guide you and serve you well. May God Bless you and please stay
