A Prayer Request

I posted last month about my health situation getting worse.  This crazy chest pain/pressure has been getting unbearable. I've had many tests since then, and my heart has been, once again, declared healthy.  I'm so thankful for that!  But there was also found a new "Cystic Lesion" on the outside of my aorta. I will see a new Pulmonologist on Friday.  Getting that appointment moved up is an answer to prayer!

 I had an appointment with my Primary Care Doctor today.  She is such a blessing to me!  She said that if this cyst lesion were anywhere but the place it is, a doctor would want to biopsy it right away.  But, this just happens to be in a special place....between the aorta and the lungs.  The Cardiologist doesn't want to biopsy it since it's not interfering with heart.  We're hoping the Pulmonologist will.  But, since it's so close to the aorta and not actually inside the lungs, they might choose not to because it's risky.  She said this particular area doesn't really have a "specialist."    She said the best option is for the Pulmonologist to choose to do it.  We need to find out exactly what this lesion is.

So, would you pray along with us?  We've seen God's hand in this journey all along the way.  His way truly is best!  We're praying specifically for Dr. Tonner, the Pulmonologist that I will be seeing on Friday afternoon.  Pray that he will have wisdom from the Great Physician to do what's best for my health.
