Thank you for your prayers. We feel so loved...
Our update is with mixed emotions. We praise the Lord that Kami does not have any blood clots (that can be found) and the doctor has ruled out Myeloma. However, 4-6 mm nodules were found in her lungs on this week's CTA scan. The doctor is very concerned that these are now present. This is the reason for Kami's dry cough, shortness of breath, and extreme fatigue.
He told Kami that these nodules were not noticed on her last CTA scan done a few weeks ago. With this finding and the elevated blood markers that show cancer, his thoughts are now leaning towards lung cancer. Do you ever feel like you are jumping out of 1 fire and into another?
He also mentioned to Kami that these could be a result of a yeast infection in her lungs (our hope). So the next step is reviewing Kami's last CTA scan to see if these nodules are indeed "new" and to talk about a biopsy. She has an appointment next Thursday at the Mayo Clinic. The 6 of us here on the mission field are going to try to make a return trip to the States to be with Momma & wife. Please pray along with us for finances, safety, wisdom and good weather.
