We have made a practice of praying together in the truck before we go into the doctor’s office each time. Yesterday we prayed for good news. We have heard so much bad news in the past week, that we needed some hope. We needed a ray of light, and that is exactly what we got!!!
“Well, you still have cancer, but it’s not rectal cancer like we thought. You have lymphoma.”
Let the hallelujah dancing, as a friend calls it, begin!!! Yes, D still has cancer. Yes, it’s still going to be a long, hard road. Yes, we are still going to need help, and yes, we definitely still need your prayers. BUT….this means no surgery, no colostomy, and no genetic risk for the girls. This also means survival rate is much higher!!!
So, D will be going in tomorrow to have a bone marrow biopsy just to make sure it has not spread to the bone marrow. If that comes back clear then the tumor has not metastasized anywhere else in his body. He will also be getting a medi port put in which requires a minor outpatient surgery. Then we will go back to the doctor next Wednesday, and he will start chemo next Friday.
God is so good!!! The power of prayer has been shown. Thank you all for your prayers and help. We still need it, but there is hope at the end of the road.
