Biopsy results

Biopsy day started off rough, with my gastroparesis acting up during the three hours while I waited in pre-op for my procedure. But they pumped me full of anti-nausea meds and I made it!

The procedure went well and Dr. R was able to get what he needed without the more invasive mediastinoscopy. Once I woke up from anesthesia and was moved to recovery, Ricky texted to tell me he’d spoken on the phone to Dr. R and he thought the biopsies looked benign! But Dr. R said to give it a week for official results.

Dr. R warned me I might feel flu like for a few days after the procedure and I definitely did. I had a fever, body aches and a sore throat. But I’m thankful for a new friend who brought me over a big batch of chicken noodle soup and biscuits! I was well taken care of.

Today marks one week since the procedure. I spoke with Dr. R and he confirmed what he thought- my lymph nodes are cancer free! But all of the lymph nodes showed sarcoidosis. I am getting a referral to a pulmonologist. Hopefully this doctor will be able to help us determine what next steps we can take to help me feel better. I will keep you posted when I find out more.

Again, thank you all so much for your prayers and messages of support!

All my love,

Dear Stephanie, I love the songs you posted, and some even brought me to tears. I also loved your story about the giraffes. I think they are such beautiful creatures God put on this earth, even if they have such long necks and their tongues feel like sand paper. I am praying and routing for you that all goes well for you and I believe that the day will come when you are free of chemo and all the other things that you have had to endure all this time. The Lord said, be still and know that I am God and I will never leave you. He is our true Father in heaven and we can call on…
