I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! -Deuteronomy 32:3
I know many are anxious to hear about the MRI results from today, and I am happy to report that all is clear in Mrs Barbara's brain. Praise God! There is no evidence of any Cancer there or anything else within the brain that would be causing her cognitive symptoms. So, basically, the pain meds are to blame for her hallucinations, delirium, and confusion. We have been able to go back up on her pain patch and down on her breakthrough meds which seems to be helping as well.
She is still uncomfortable and has been battling some abdominal distention and occassional sharp pains and nausea. The doctor thinks she may be constipated, so she will be doing a "clean out" similar to a colonoscopy bowel prep to clear out her colon. Our hope is this will make her more comfortable and reduce some of her pain.
Her next CT scan of her abdomen will be in 2 weeks. Please continue to pray that her Cancer tumors are succumbing to the immunotherapy and that her pain, fatigue, and discomfort are replaced with energy, strength, and comfort.
Heavenly Father, I praise You today for the good news we were given! My heart is still heavy as I watch my precious Mother-in-Love struggling, but at the same time is so filled with a hope that only You could give. In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen!
