Through an MRI in January they discovered an 8 mm x 8 mm lesion on my liver. In April a follow up MRI showed the lesion to be 12 mm x 11 mm. Tomorrow I am scheduled for an ablation of the lesion. I’m praying this ablation will kill this cancer. I will have a follow up MRI in a month to see if the lesion is dead and meet with the doctor two weeks later to discuss it. If you’re a praying person or a sender of good vibes, please send well wishes my way. I’m really nervous about this.

Dang! According the physicians assistant at me hepatologist's office if they find the lesions early they can zap them and then most people are just fine. So, I will be praying that you can zap this away and never have another problem.
Thanks. That’s what mine says but my hematologist said “you know this isn’t going to cure your cancer.” I said I know. We will just have to keep a constant eye on it.
Well, we have to keep an eye on our livers anyway. But still, I'm sure you could do without a worry like that. I hope you can patch yourself back up and get out into the world as soon as possible. Personally, I am a champion worrier and I can tell you it's useless. However, even knowing this does not stop me.
I try very hard to “let go, let God” but this is a big one for me. My sister in South Carolina is in the fight for her life with colon cancer. I have got to be ok. I need to go see her.
I am a "praying person" and I will be praying that they eradicate this pesky lesion. God bless!
I believe in a mighty God and will be praying for you. Rest in Him.
Had the ablation today. They said it went like textbook. It was a microwave ablation ..safest in case there was bleeding in the liver. They could have cauterize it. I am home and so far no pain. That is good. Six weeks cannot come fast enough! Thanks to all of you who had me in your thoughts and prayers.
