Test results from Pulmonologist
It's been a year of trials with my health and I really don't have enough room to go into everything, but back in Feb. they found a spot on my lung (which we figured was the result of the bronchitis I'd just gotten over). In the whole process of this, a PET Scan revealed another totally different spot on my hilum that they thought was suspicious and recommended that I see a pulmonary surgeon to get his opinion on removing both spots. Well, I had surgery for my deviated septum scheduled for the next day and recovery from that took a while... Thank you very much, I'm breathing 100% better and feeling like a new person! Yesterday hubby and I visited with Dr. X and he was wonderful! Explained results from previous test, etc. and said that they could not tell that either spot had grown in size. They believe it is some type of infection/inflammation, unexplained. We just got the report from the radiologist and my pulmonologist and they are greatly encouraged that neither spot has changed, and they will follow this for the next two year before they will completely rule the spots as non-cancerous. My biological father died from lung cancer from all his years of "I do not have a smoking habit and I can quit anytime" smoking a few years ago. The fact that I've never smoked (unless you count the campfire) and this has come up has been rather frightening, but all the same, God is the same yesterday as He is today, and will be the same as He will be tomorrow - circumstances will change, but He will remain the same. Thank you so much for all your prayers and we really ask that you continue to lift this up in prayer.
