Great news!!

I went to the oncologist at MD Anderson yesterday and got wonderful news. The antibody chemo treatment I did back in Nov/Dec worked really well and knocked out most of the cancer in my stomach. The doctors were very pleased at how well the treatment worked. But there is still a very, very small area in the stomach that still showed cancer. Dr. Pro said sometimes the antibody chemo can take up to six months to fully work so it might still knock out that small bit of cancer. So... in May I will do another stomach biopsy and PET scan. IF the cancer is still there I will do radiation (just like I did on the cancer in my chest area at the end of 2006). She does not think I will have to do full blown bad chemo at all. At least I can keep my hair with the radiation! And I just had seven inches cut off it last week because I was anticipating bad news at the oncologist. I figured I'd cut half of the hair off now and then then the rest of it off when the chemo started. I just have not been feeling well at all the last few months and so I had a bad feeling the antibody chemo didn't work. Thank goodness I was wrong! Dr. Pro thinks my not feeling well has more to do with my rheumatology and autoimmune problems than with my cancer. I have an appointment to see my rheumatologist next month.
So... thank you all for all of your prayers! They worked!!

I found you on Wardeh's blog, I hope you don't mind me responding to your question of the trinity.
The following scriptures are what I believe, and what my church teaches. I hope these scriptures will be helpful, I am not one to "bible bash" and don't want to start an argument. I feel a true christian leads more by example, for that is what the Savior did.
(I am sorry for the added letters in the scriptures, they are for cross reference.)

Matthew 3:16,17
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up bstraightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the cSpirit of God descending like a ddove, and lighting upon him:
17 And lo a avoice from heaven, saying, This is my bbeloved cSon, in whom I am well pleased.

Luke 3:21,22
21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being abaptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
22 And the aHoly Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a bdove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

John 14:28
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I ago unto the Father: for my bFather is greater than I.

John 20:17
17 Jesus saith unto her, aTouch me not; for I am not yet bascended to my cFather: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my dFather, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Acts 7:55-56
55 But he, being full of the aHoly Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the bglory of cGod, and dJesus estanding on the fright hand of God,
56 And said, Behold, I asee the heavens bopened, and the cSon of man standing on the right dhand of eGod.

Hebrews 1:1-2
1 God, who aat sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the bfathers by the cprophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his aSon, whom he hath bappointed cheir of all things, by whom also he dmade the eworlds.

I hope this is helpful for you, and I hope I have not offended you in any way, I just wanted to help answer your question.

It's been awhile since I've come to your blog and I am so glad to see that the chemo has knocked out most of the cancer in your stomach.
You are in my prayers every day!!
