In our last post, it was surgery day and Noonie came through it so well. She was in the hospital overnight and was amazingly energetic the next day. We even had a nice Mexican food lunch!
That's why I was dumbfounded when she fainted the next morning. Yes, she was thrown for a loop, but so was I. I know nothing about emergency care, so I did what I see on TV-- I called her name loudly. I started calling 911 when she came to. I did take a few hours before Noonie felt like getting up and walking around.
Amazingly, we flew out later that day and her energy rose as the day went along.
Here's some miraculous news. We got the biopsy back from the surgery a few days ago. The surgeon removed 29 lymph nodes and NONE had any cancer! Whatever was there is gone. We cried when we heard the news. It was totally shocking. Not that we didn't expect God to heal, but hearing it plain and simple as that was incredible.
Noonie does move on to the next phase of treatment... radiation. This will kill any tiny cancer cells that may remain. She has several months of herceptin, an antibody which attacks her specific form of cancer. There is no side effect to that, and it takes about 90 minutes to infuse, every three weeks through June.
We are rejoicing! God showed up in a big way. Thank you for your prayers, love and support.
We head to Houston on September 25.
