Prayer Update:

Evening Hello Spark Friend's

This past week has been most challenging still dealing with swelling and mega pain sutures in lip/mouth still dissolving! My BP remains high, this morning 160/96/77 and tonight 160/91/83 and weight is down to 108 pounds:

I admit, itís hard to remain positive when you are feeling so drained! However, I know God is watching over me and will continue to bring strength and healing! Please pray for my appointment with Cancer Clinic on Friday to meet with my Oncologist.

Thank you all for your ongoing prayers. You all are so appreciated! God Bless you all. emoticon emoticon

Dear Sister in Christ, While I appreciate getting the update with specifics to pray about, I am sorry the surgery was so extensive. Still, God is gracious and will heal you in His time and way. I understand it'll be hard to wait on Him, but don't forget Isaiah 40:28-31. Often waiting on the Lord can be difficult. I'm praying for your healing and that God will bear you up in His loving arms. I know He can and will.

Saturday I met with my Surgeon for follow-up and won't know anything more about treatment until I follow up with cancer clinic when I see my Oncologist!

Surgeon said there was a large area involved where he had to remove the cancerous mass!

He told me unlike the last 2 surgeries this time it will take 3 months to heal the surgical site.

There are sutures that are still dissolving in my mouth and lip which takes time!

There is a lot of swelling on the face, lip and mouth due to the extensive surgery along with the reconstruction surgery that was done same time as the surgery to remove mass.

My surgery involved 3 parts, 1st part to remove scar tissue 2nd part to remove cancerous mass then 3rd part to do the reconstruction surgery!

Once swelling goes down the lip & mouth including nose will be back in proper alignment, he said the nerve damage is from the surgery itself and the fact some of the nerves in the face were removed along with the cancerous mass.

As a result I have further nerve and muscle damage! Surgeon said I will always have numbness basically no feeling or very little feeling on the left side of face and mouth!

I was referred back to Cancer Clinic to see Oncologist who will plan out my treatment. I see him end of May..

Please continue to pray! emoticon emoticon

I see my Surgeon on Saturday May 16th at 3:10pm. For the most part have had telephone calls with my specialists but this time he needs to see me in the clinic to check the surgery suture/surgery site and check inside my mouth besides the left side of face nose and lip.

All sutures are dissolvable, I still have issues with pain, swelling and High BP but know this will improve and I will get past this.

My other appointments at Cancer Clinic with both oncologists are scheduled for end of May. Will keep you in the loop and appreciate your prayers! emoticon

It is good to know that God has provided so many people to help do His work in healing you. I fully believe that He can, and sometimes does, simply heal one; but also sometimes works through doctors. After all, Luke in the Bible was a physician, and I don't see anything that says Jesus told him to cease and desist.

Hugs,
Nancy

Updates

I was seen by a Dermatology Oncologist and his Associate on Friday at BC Vancouver Cancer Clinic. They told me I will need both treatment and surgery. I was also told that I will need to see a Medical Oncologist and should have the appointment within 2 weeks who will plan out my Treatment. Next week the Team of Dermatology/Oncologists, Surgeons, Medical/Oncologists will meet together & discuss my case and plan out my treatment that they recommend. I will then go back to the Cancer Clinic and receive the results and their recommendations for the Treatment they feel is best suited for me. In all of this I feel well cared for by the Team at the Cancer Clinic. I have Godís Peace Strength and His Healing Touch that surrounds me day by day! I will let you know when my Treatment Plan is put in place. Thank you for your continued Prayers. emoticon

Judith, I appreciate receiving this update and will pray about those specific things along with your continued peace and faith in God. We know that God loves you, and that He wants the best for you.

God definitely will heal you, in His time and way, which as I know you know: may not be our time and way, but WILL come. You are such a blessing to us, and a wonderful witness to God's goodness. I pray He gives you an extra measure of peace and blessing today.

Thank you all for your prayers and your valued friendship, you are a blessing in which I thank God!

Another quick update:

I was at the Cancer Clinic most of yesterday to meet with the Oncologists to discuss my Plan of Care & Treatment Plan...I will be seeing another Medical Oncologist to plan the type of treatment they suggest that is best for me and when the next surgery will be, we discussed Immunotherapy and the types of drugs they use that will hopefully stop the growth and to bring healing to my body.

Appreciate your prayers as I continue this journey into my next stage of treatment. Bottom line I am believing that I will be healed and cancer free. In the meantime I leave this in God's Hands and Keep Shining for the Lord as I witness God's Grace, Strength, Peace and His Healing Touch upon my body...

God's Blessings All...

Good Morning Team,

Some of you might not know but last July 2019 I was seen by a specialist for what I thought was for my psoriasis that was out of control. Instead he saw some area on my face that didn't normal so examined me and did a biopsy, it came back as Malignant Spreading type Melanoma. Surgery was needed, I ended up by having 2 surgeries one in August and 2 weeks later another.

By Mid-November it was not under control and came back growing in same place but in further areas. They kept a watch on it with tests and skin examination. In December I had a dental appointment and ended up by seeing a Dentist who was covering, she looked inside my mouth checked cheek in and outside mouth and sent a referral to a Pathologist. From that appointment I saw Oncologist Head and Neck Surgeon and had a Pet Scan and another Biopsy which came back as Spreading Malignant Melanoma.

Surgery was ordered again but this time I am being seen by another Oncologist to discuss another treatment that will go along with surgery.

I saw the surgeon on Tuesday past, after examining me and reading reports he sent a referral for me to see a Oncologist at the Cancer clinic to discuss immunotherapy and what drugs to use for my treatment, he said I would benefit with the referral so treatment can be planned, he said I will require both Surgery and some form of treatment like Immunotherapy, using a combination of drugs that stop the growth and hopefully promote healing.

Unfortunately the surgery is much more involved this time, he said he would have to take more tissue and a wider area to remove the malignant mass which will result in further nerve and muscle damage!

In spite of the news I know I am covered in Godís Grace, Strength and His Healing touch...Bottom line I am held in the Palms of God's Hands. He is my Healer and He is watching over me.

The Clinic called me on Thursday past to confirm that they had received the referral from the Surgeon and would call me with a appointment in next few days.

To my surprise the phone rang at around 3:00pm Saturday afternoon from the Cancer Clinic telling me I had an appointment for Friday, February 28th to see the Oncologist, wow in just 4 days from referral being sent I receive a call for an appointment for the following week, now that was really fast. God moved the mountains. Indeed, I feel well cared for by this Medical Team!

Yes, I will beat this and know God has me in just the right Hospitals and being seen by just the right Surgeons and Specialists who are looking after me.. God is Good! emoticon Thank you all for your many prayers and your support! God Bless you all...
