The Unexpected Journey
It was May and time for our family vacation to the beach. The weather was great and there was an endless beach to isolate our clan for the sake of COVID-19. Before the trip, I had gone to the doctor for some tummy troubles and was given some reflux medicine. However, by the end of our beach week, I was not able to splurge on vacation food. In fact, I was not able to eat much of anything.
When we got home, I went for some blood tests and an ultrasound. I had no sooner returned from the appointment when I received a call from the doctor telling me to go to the ER as soon as I could. I was a bit puzzled as my husband drove me to the hospital. The pandemic regulations did not allow him to go in with me, so I went alone to get checked out, which included a CT scan. When the doctor came in to report the results he said, “It is not good, and it is very serious.” I asked if my husband could be brought in to hear what the doctor had to report as well. I knew it was something big because they did not hesitate to break the rules for him to join me. The doctor proceeded to explain that there was a cancerous mass in and around my pancreas. He showed us the scan images and pointed out the mass. Tears fell down my cheeks because I knew the fatal odds of pancreatic cancer.
Please understand that my tears were not because I did not trust God. My life was committed to God and His will long ago. I have trusted Him with my life, but now that death was a certain possibility...
God was in control—I knew that. I determined there in the ER that I would be a grateful, thankful patient, and trust God with everything.
I was admitted to the hospital, and things started happening fast. After several procedures and a biopsy, I was sent home. The tests showed my cancer was extremely aggressive, so my treatment would need to be extremely aggressive. Back to the hospital I went to begin chemotherapy, alone again. I kept busy with tests, procedures, and infusions. Two days in I started feeling anxious from the meds, being alone, and all things cancer. My family came to the courtyard so I could see them from a distance. I played Christian music and read my Bible for comfort. Finally, I was released to go home.
This was the beginning of six infusions scheduled three weeks apart. The week of chemo included prednisone, so there was energy enough to get through it. In the second week, the white blood cell count would go incredibly low, and along with it my energy. The third week was supposed to be a good week to get ready for the next chemo infusion. However, my third week always seemed to have a surprise sickness or weakness.
