Biopsy Results

The doctor called yesterday evening with the biopsy results, and everything looks normal. We were very relieved to have that news. Normally other steps would be required to confirm that cancer really is not in the enlarged lymph nodes, but because these nodes are located directly above a major blood vessel and because they are relatively small, the next step of biopsies cannot be done. Dr. Schroeder (biopsy doctor) feels that the results are trustworthy, and the only thing to do now is to monitor these areas with regular visits to my oncologist which was in the game plan anyway.

Thanks for all the encouraging notes. There will probaby be more of these ups and downs over the next years, but we've gotten through the first, and I won't bother worrying about the future.

Oh GOOD! I've been checking the blog several times to find the results of the biopsies. I'm so happy that its "so far, so good" for you.. praying it continues! I'm so very happy that after such a grim initial prognosis that you have done so well and touched so many lives in the process! God bless your family and give you MANY more happy years/decades together!

Praise the Lord for such encouraging news! We prayed for you in our church service today (as we do every service). I am so glad and relieved for all of you. We will continue to pray and trust in our Sovereign God. God is good...ALL the time! We love you bunches. Give the little ones (and yourselves)hugs and kisses from all of us. We so wish that we could be there to visit. Maybe next time we are in the States.?

Hi, Jon and Amy! I was just thanking God and praising Him for His miracles in your lives. I think this week would be your one year diagnosis date. Is that correct? At any rate, I am so thankful to have you as friends. Love to your whole family,
