Yesterday, my July 18 doctor visit got changed to today. Unfortunately, there is still no clarity. The doctors still don’t know if there is malignant cancer or not. There are abnormal cells but they are not sure of the cause – if it’s cancer or if it’s cells from the PSC disease or dead tissue. So they have sent the cells to specialists in Stockholm. All these specialists do is look at these types of cells to see if they are cancer or not. Treatment will depend on what they say. I may have to go to Stockholm so they can look in the bile ducts via a spyglass method. They can go in a back door and look directly in the duct. They can’t do this here in Luleå. They are aware of our departure date for the USA and will press Stockholm for an answer. So we wait to see what all this means.

The positive part is that when I did a CT scan last week of the thorax and abdomen, there was no metastasis of cancer. None was found in the lymph nodes or elsewhere. Everything looked the same as it had when I was in the hospital. Also it’s positive that I am feeling well. These point out that nothing is growing or changing. The doctor said that if it was, I would feel poorly pretty quickly. I guess the liver is pretty sensitive in that way. That’s it in a nutshell. Thanks for your continued prayer for the healing of my liver!!!
Today, a friend sent me Psalm 121, which Tony & I read while waiting for the doctor (Thank you, Cora!). What a blessing to know that my God is my guardian, the shade on my right hand, the One who never slumbers or sleeps, and who keeps my feet from slipping and stumbling. Thank you Jesus!! We are depending on You!!!
