Great news of improvement after 2nd chemo

It's been too long since I posted an update, but we got some great news Friday from my cancer specialist Dr. Grace Lee in Durham that I must tell. After the 2nd chemo 3 weeks ago, she ordered scans of my brain, lungs, liver and bones, hoping to see one of two results: no growth of cancer or a decrease of the widespread disease. Worst case would have been further growth.

Dr. Lee called Friday to report the MRI and CT cans both showed excellent improvement! I have been feeling stronger daily since getting over the two days of mild nausea after the 2nd chemo, with two very good weeks of feeling closer to "normal" since this downhill spiral of health began in early January.

We had a family celebration last night with pizza and ice cream and I had to share the joy with the world online today.

One more good news item, the long-awaited wheel-chair ramp from the VA is being installed in our garage as I write, which will  greatly aid my sweet wife in getting me in and out of the house for trips and to get some much needed sunshine.

I'm rejoicing that God is working and is using many others to pray and minister to me and my sweet wife and loved ones.

My typing skills are still in the hunt and peck level but hopefully that will improve soon too.

May God richly bless you all for your continued prayers for me and loved ones.

Glad to hear your about your improvement. You'll continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. Some of us have always typed with to fingers. Its slow, but it works.

I stopped by hoping to find just such an update. Good news. I'm glad you're getting a ramp, too. A big plus for getting in and out, and this time of year is some of the best days to be outside in Carolina.
