Hurdle Cleared!!!!

The MRI today was good! We are breathing a huge sigh of relief.

I start a high dose of chemo on Friday and take it for five days every month. In four weeks, before starting the next five-day dose, I'll go in for neuro tests. Four weeks after that, before starting the third five-day dose, I'll have another MRI scan. This will be the routine: monthly neuro tests & scans every other month while taking high dose chemo 5 days a month. If something pops up or progresses, we have something else to deal with. But for now, all is as well as it can be.

One thing that came to my mind today was the realization of not only how many prayers were offered on my behalf (THANK YOU AGAIN), but also how many times I prayed for this outcome today. It was more than the routine prayer schedule, to be sure. So my question for myself today was whether my prayers of thanksgiving will be as numerous and frequent as were the prayers for help with this scan. I definitely need to step it up. And I guess it would also be a good idea, while I'm thanking those of you who prayed for me, to ask you to join with me in a prayer of thanksgiving for a good result today.

How exciting. We keep going back with Brett - over a year now, and it's so great when you hear the news...no new growth or reoccurance. You really are doing well. How's the fever? Did it ever let up? It's so hard to get off that Decadron. You are in my prayers!
