Good News!

I saw the pulmonologist , Dr. Ross today, and he said my lungs are clear of fluid and strong.  There’s still a tumor in there, but it has shrunk by an inch.  Then we went to see the oncologist, Dr Rich and he said the Tarceva is working, shrinking tumors throughout my body.  The one on my liver is gone, and Dr Rich said no new tumors in the brain.  The existing ones are shrinking or stable.   He thinks that is great news because it indicates the Tarceva is working on my brain tumors as well.  (Last MRI, even with radiation, I had new tumors in the brain.)  We are grateful and encouraged.  I know Heavenly Father is blessing me through the prayers and faith of so many! Thanks to all of you!

I also received the bone hardening  Zometa infusion today–long, but encouraging day.

Another quote from Pres. Wheelright’s recent devotional (BYU-H President) “The more you trust in the Lord and obey his commandments, the more your faith will grow.”
