Re: We are devastated

I don't get on here often enough but I want to share a similar situation we were in. November 2021 our PCM called me at 6:40 AM and said Barb's labs were very disturbing and that he was setting her up an appointment with a cancer specialist. We had that appointment and they said Barb had Lymphoma and that they wanted to check her labs weekly, attend a "Living with cancer" education class and see her doctor weekly. Talk about taking your breath away, we were equally devastated as well. A month later she was scheduled to begin her chemo treatments but the doctor said she noticed that Barb's copper levels were extremely low and that could cause faulty blood readings so she started taking a copper supplement. Chemo was put on hold and her weekly labs showed her copper levels were increasing. After a month and a half her copper was in the normal range and her blood counts were also back to normal. We were ecstatic and so thankful for all the prayers expressed for her. I'm certainly not implying that this could also be possible in Brenda's case but it was nearly a month into Barb's situation that the doctor decided to check her copper level. Apparently copper levels are not in regular labs unless asked for. We're praying for you and Brenda. God Bless!
