Spared by God

It was in Sept 2015 when I heard a gurgling, a bubbling if you will, when I exhaled. A voice in my head told me to get it checked, it was not normal.

I went to the Walk in Clinic. The doctor heard the bubbles and ordered an X-ray. He sent me home to wait for radiology results. This was Friday.

That evening he called my and said he saw something so he ordered a Cat Scan.
A subsequent biopsy proved lung cancer, stage one. They scheduled surgery for the Monday after Thanksgiving.

The surgery went well, and now I get short of breath easily but I am alive with a 76% chance of no reoccurring tumor.

God is great. By the way, the cause of the bubbling was never discovered. It ceased after the X-Ray.

Indeed, God is great.

    WOW – finding lung cancer at such an early stage is so rare, and so greatly increases the odds of being able to beat it! My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer at a very early stage, also, and she is 11 years out, and doing great! So wonderful to hear that you are doing well, and praying that you’ll continue to breathe easy for many years!
