Reporting in with the best report we have gotten in two and a half years! But first, Judy and I have to admit that we both went into this appointment with a little trepidation about what we would find out from the CT Scan that was run last Friday. Even though the growth in the tumors has been slow (about 20% growth since the original diagnosis), we both feared more substantial growth this time. When the Dr. sat down in the examining room, he said, "Your bloodwork looks good...the scan didn't show any growth at all since the last scan. As a matter of fact, the tumors just seem to be dormant."
We feel like our faith had wavered a little and God needed to let us know that He was still in control. He is way too good to us, but we are so grateful. We hear from so many of you that you pray for us daily, and we lean heavily on those prayers. Keep up the good work and we may just lick this thing yet.
Ronnie and Judy
P.S. From Judy....... Ditto what Ronnie said. We stand amazed in the present of God and still have no idea why this is happening but, it doesn't matter. He is trustworthy.
You, our support system, have never allowed us to walk this walk alone. You have encouraged us when we were running low on "gas". Thank you is not enough but, we really do depend on you. That is a tough thing to say, when you are a 4H girl, list maker, calender person ( I have THREE!) and born an "over the top organizer".
Today, Ronnie and I played in a golf tournament with some great friends that I went to junior high and high school with. We laughed all day (at least the girls did, the boys were a little more serious). But the point was, we played! Last fall, before I started my new medicine, I wasn't laughing as much. Others in our group have, to me, much worse problems than Ronnie and I. BUT, we laughed like there was no tomorrow. We were just loving the moment.
Thanks to God, you, good doctors and new drugs, I know we will have many more days like this. And I hope you do too. We can never repay you for what you have done for us!
