Prayer List

Cindy Shifflett wife of Brother Chris Shifflett: 

8/22/19

From Brother Chris Shifflett:

Just a short update. Last week my wife had a CT scan of her lung and midsection to see the progress of her treatment and the cancer itself. Today we learned that overall the news is good. The left lung still shows no sign of cancer but it remains active in her right lung. There is cancerous tumor there but that has shrunk about 19% since starting a regular scheduled cancer drug treatment. The drug has some side effects but normally doesn’t cause hair loss but my wife likes to be that 1 in 10 patient that screws up the stats and that something like that would happen to. She lost some hair and had it cut into a bob but she’s still looks beautiful to me.
 
There remains active cancer nodules in her right lung as well but have not shown any significant change/growth, the tumor on her liver and pelvis remain small and unchanged which is all good news. Additionally they speculated that the bone around the tumor on her pelvis is trying to regenerate itself and repair itself. Additionally the issue with the intestine has improved as well, there was a dilated section of the intestine present, caused by the pain meds, which has expanded and seems to also act as if it’s trying to repair itself. The day after labor day she’ll undergo a 4-5 hour full body MRI under complete sedation at Hopkins to gather information about the two tumors on her spine and determine if they are in the spine or if any others are developing. 
 
She went through some complications that caused her weight to drop to 97 lbs. but after the adjustment of some medication she weighs 113 lbs. now. Her normal weight is around 125 lbs. Hopefully that will continue to increase as time goes on. The team of physicians that work to treat her know she is dealing with two compound issues, the effects of her m/v accident and her cancer. They’re exploring the idea of having a neurosurgeon do a nerve abrasion or nerve block to her spine to stop the nerves synapsis from sending pain messages to the spine, neck and head. It would be a permanent fix but there are complications involved and much to consider, they will take there time in exploring this idea.
Thanks all for your prayers and support.
Fraternally yours, Bro. C. Shifflett
