AMEN

Tony had a CT scan last week, today the doctor called his tumor an Adenoma. That is actually a benign growth. They do not even call it a tumor now. He will be scheduled for surgery within the month or so to remove his left adrenal gland. They want to remove this growth. Right now they do not see any more tumors that look cancerous. They will of course biopsy this but they are thinking the IL-2 killed the cancer cells. He will then be back on an every 3 months CT scan plan. And will hopefully be considered NED (no evidence of disease) yaaaaaay! It's been a LONG 6 months of pure HELL and now we need some deep breaths and some rest and some much needed time to reflect!!! Thank you Jesus and Thank you for all of the prayers! I am overflowing with emotion right now...NOW I realize just what all happened and what for. I am praying that Tony falls into the 10-12% of patients that have a total recovery and cure of this awful disease from IL-2. Right now he is for sure in the one quarter of patients that usually benefit from it! We will always be on this cancer roller coaster now that we have boarded..I don't think you EVER can fully escape. But I pray for Tony's cure and for some peaceful comfort for now...Dear Heavenly Father I thank you so much for prayers answered and for bringing us this joyful news today, thank you so much for listening to my daily pleads with you...Tony is a wonderful man and I am so thankful to have him in my life...thank you so much. Please Jesus help ease any pain and suffering my wonderful Aunt Martha is having right now and I pray that you provide everyone close to her some comfort as she will be coming home to you very soon...today was such a bittersweet day for me..I get to keep Tony much longer but yet I need to say goodbye to someone so VERY special to me very soon because of this awful disease...please help guide someone to a cure soon, I ask this in your sweet name.....Amen

  1. Amen, indeed. Translates to "I Believe". I see you do too. I will continue to pray that complete recovery comes and that the two of you live long and happy, thriving lives together in faith.
