The good news is that the cancer has not spread and the tumors are not larger. Especially with a cancer as aggressive as small cell lung carcinoma, the fact that it hasn't spread shows that the chemo is getting some of the job done. The doctors and all of our personal research all agreed: if she had not started chemo, she would most likely already be gone by this point in time. So, we are thankful for the fact that the cancer has not spread, but a little discouraged that the chemo has not zapped those tumors back a lot more.
God was gracious to remind me today in the midst of this discouraging news that no matter what the outcome of this CT scan, my mom will not live a day longer or shorter than God intends. He is a loving and compassionate God who holds her days in His capable and powerful hands.
