Post #17 – GOOD NEWS!!

The scan results are good.

My stoic Chinese oncologist Dr Ye was visibly thrilled to give us the results this last week. In short, halfway through Chemo and Tumor has shrunk by over 50% !!! No signs of anything spreading and the treatment is working!

Thank you all for your prayers – Love does heal. For every care package and text message, for every visit and every casserole…

Thank you.

By the grace of God go I
