The consultation with the radiologist went very well. He confirmed it was stage 3A cancer. His estimate was that radiation alone was the best treatment. That mom would not feel any affects do to the ability today to target radiation to very specific areas . His estimate was that the radiation would significantly extend her life with about a 30 percent chance of a complete cure. The treatments would start in about 2 weeks and last 7 weeks with dosage given 5 days per week.
Thanks be to God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ. Father, hear our prayer for mom’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit through your Son Jesus Christ. Give her caregivers grace, wisdom, knowledge, skill, compassion, understanding and the proper tech to assist well in the healing process. Mother Mary, St. Luke, and St. Peregrine, pray for us all that we have grace, peace, consolation, strength, faith, hope, and love. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
