We’ve documented Plain Jane’s battle with cancer. I’ve talked with her periodically (she is such a joy) and it’s high time we give our community an update. Here is Plain Jane-
(Oh, one last thing. Regarding the thumbnail picture, that is Plain Jane. Some might bristle and think my choice is strange considering her challenges. But you have to know Plain Jane, and believe me, she is howling at the choice because she has a wicked sense of humor.)
To the Finest Deplorables ever,
Thank you all for your prayers. Besides giving me a cushion of love, you have made a difference in the healing process. My side effects have been mild. The healing so far has made my very doctors happy. Much has been done and if the next step works, I have possibly a long road ahead with Immunotherapy every three weeks possibly for life, but that is fine. If it doesn’t work, then a relatively short road. Lol.
I am not too proud to ask for prayers once more, so I am.
I was very sick with various things for over a year before being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in January 2020. Since then I have completed 18 hits of chemo and Immunotherapy (6 three day rounds) and several hits of just Immunotherapy so far. Most of the cancer has gone into remission in my liver, spleen, femur, neck lymph node and brain. There never was any in my lungs even though it is called metastasized Small Cell Lung Cancer. Why the name, I have no idea other than someone is making hay or dollars from having cancers named such so it it is applied to the lungs.
Scans now say that even though the large lesions in my brain have shrunk immensely, two new small lesions have appeared in my brain. I will be starting a full compliment (10 hits over a two week period) of radiation on my whole brain starting this coming Monday.
Although I would be happy to go home to Jesus, my family and friends are pulling for me to fight the cancer. I am trying because of some things that transpired through this which leads me to believe God wants me to fight. I don’t know what He wants for me, but whatever it is, I know prayers will help.
Please know that I have asked God to please share any prayers for me, or my potential remission, with others who are in a bad situation and don’t have anyone to pray for them, don’t know Him, and since I wound up with two Muslim doctors, for conversion of Muslims, others who don’t know the Lord, our God and the pray-ers themselves. I believe in sharing and that God multiplies prayers.
Again, thank you all, you wonderful Deplorables and God bless you and yours always,
