Ta Da!!

I was going to give tell everyone my incredibly wonderful news, but changed my mind.

KIDDING...please don't go all torches and pitchforks on me...heehee!

So today, I lined up plane tickets for my first chemo next week, put in notice on my apartment for next Sunday & made a bazillion phone calls and changed appointments to be able to go to them while I was there.  And then Dr Z called Joe...and then Joe called me...and this is what he had to say...

They are now POSITIVE I have pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer...that alone would be enough good news...BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! 

The trial that Dr Z really wanted me in but that wouldn't open for at least a month, OPENED today and I GOT IN IT!!!  Now this is pending insurance approval for 1 of the meds, but who cares, I will make it work!  I got in the pancreatic cancer trial that is using 2 meds that on their own have had amazing results, and now I will be trying both at once to see if they give an even better result.


Last night, part of my prayer went something like this "Dear God, put me in the trial that is best for me.  I would really like in the second one, but know if you want me there, you will do it when you see fit, whether its in 1 month or 10."

He apparently decided I didn't even need to wait a month.  My miracle is happening!  GOD IS GOOD!

Ok, now that you've read my fantastic news, you can all start jumping up and down and yelling.  Oh, you mean only I was that excited???


  1. No, you were not the only one. I'm in tears for you! God IS GREAT! ~CARRIE ROBSON

  2. I don't even know you, and I'm SO excited for you! I'm especially excited you get to be around your family and kiddos, because that, in and of itself, will help you heal faster. I am a friend of Katie's, and have been following your story :) You are in my prayers and thoughts often.

  3. Awesome news!!!! I hope this is your miracle, Lindsay. <3

  4. Thinking of you every day, Linds, and so glad to hear this good news.
