A little apprehensive

24 Jun

Bronwen and I have arrived in Christchurch with James, our eldest child visiting from the USA, for the CT scan on Thursday and appointment with our main Oncologist on Friday.

After the dramatic progress evidenced by the last scan,I must confess to being a trifle nervous about this one. What if it is still there? Treatments can deal with 99.9% of the cancer cells, but if one remains, it becomes immune to those treatments and eventually has sons and daughters and grandsons and grandaughters and away it goes again – only this time more aggressively.

I am retaining an even keel as I approach the appoinmtents and quietly hopeful.

Immediately after Friday’s appointment we have to drive straight back to Nelson (5.5hrs) so I won’t get anything posted before Saturday. 

Watch this space on Saturday for the outcome.

    Dear Doug
    We at VLCS, singapore met your sons and have been praying for you to totalled recover from the Cancer. Praise God that the journey has strengthened your walk in God and we are glad to hear the good news.

    May I suggest this; Drink soursop juice daily to search out all the straying CA cells. One thing I always remind people to do is “In Jesus Name, we ask god for a creative miracle of a brand-new immune system and command all tissues affected byb the chemo and cancer be cleansed, healed and restored to normal function. We command an increase of killer blood cells to serach out every CA cells and destroy them. We speak to the root of the CA to dry up and die and be extracted out of the body. Father God we worship You for You ahve not changed and You have blessed us with this medicine in 1 Peter 2v24 (Prov 4v18-27; Matt 15v30-31; 3John2; Pro 17v22) and laugh lots with all your children, grandchildren and friends.
    God bless
    Ps Irene East
