The Elephant

If you know me, or just read my blog, you know I have an I bring into every room. You can't see it, but it's always there. Sometimes, because I'm feeling pretty darn good, I forget for a few minutes that I have this elephant. But, then, because people are kind and genuinely care for me, they ask how my health is. I haven't blogged for a bit regarding my health, so I thought I'd post about it. 
This is an exciting week. Out of the love and generosity of my sweet parents I am seeking additional, supplemental treatment at Cancer Center for Healing, in Orange County. I went for the first time last month and received new supplements (I'm still on oral chemo) and had a blood draw for a new treatment-S.O.T (Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique). (This is where it gets crazy) so my blood was sent away to Greece (yes, the country) and some kind of "medicine" (not actually an antibiotic, but similar) is made for my specific cancer cell. Wednesday morning I will have that medicine intravenously administered (from the cost, I'm expecting it to be a 14k gold needle;)). It will work stealth-like on my cancer cells(those little buggers are smart, gotta sneak up on them), inducing cell death. It will remain in the bloodstream for 14-16 weeks. This treatment can occur 3 times within 12 months.
I am excited to see the results! Please join us in praying that it works! God has been so good, so faithful and so kind. It's been over a year that I've had this diagnosis of stage IV metastatic breast cancer (4 years total living with cancer). And, crazily, though it's been a cancer coaster, I have improved health. That is only due to God graciously answering our prayers. May He receive ALL due glory. It's my honor to bring Him glory through this journey.
