I teach school at a reservation school in ND school. Just before school started in August 2017, I was told that medically, I was very fit. By early September I could not stand on my own and no one knew why.
Then God stepped in. I was told I could not get to see the doctors I needed to see to get a diagnosis until the END of October 2017, another 6-7 week away, medical protocol. God arranged for a visiting doctor from WV to see me right away. This doctor took a biopsy and found I had cancer, but not the specific kind of cancer, just that bit was lymphatic cancer. Medical protocol said I could not see a cancer doctor until I knew the specific kind of cancer. My visiting doctor, through God's direction, rammed my case into the Cancer Center anyway. The Cancer Doctor took a quick looked at my situation and ordered me to start chemo BEFORE we had a specific diagnosis, again against protocol.
He said my cancer was so advanced, stage 4, and so aggressive, that I could not wait for the protocol diagnosis. He started my general Lymphatic chemo the next Monday. Then Tuesday he got the specific kind of cancer, Non-Hodgkin type B. He then adjusted my treatment for that specific cancer. I have completed 5 of 6 "regular" chemo treatments. My last regular one is 1/22 to 26/2018.
My doctor's last concern is cancer getting into my brain. Spinal tap done last Friday came back with a preliminary result that said my spine and brain are clear of cancer. But to be safe he wants me to have 3 special chemo sessions with some very extra nasty chemo.
This special chemo will take about 3 hours to put into me but is so nasty that it will take 3 - 10 days to get it out of my system. It is so dangerous that I cannot be around others until lab tests prove the chemo level in my body is safe for me to be around others. On the bright side, the doctor is talking about cured and not just remission.
On my way to my first chemo treatment, I heard a message on the radio that God moves mountains before you even know there are mountains that need to be moved. Then a dear friend came by to visit. He gave me a card that said God removes mountains before you even know you a mountain that needs to be moved. Before I even knew I had cancer, God had removed all the mountains of medical protocols before I even knew I had cancer! Trust and live knowing that God is in charge because He is.
