Prayers are Answered

Written 22 minutes ago from David Craine

Throughout this two year battle Lisa and I have done more crying than anyone should.  But today we cried tears of joy as we found out that after her CAT Scan and blood work that right now everything is normal.  The CAT scan revealed that the two tumors that they hit with radiation are dead and shrinking.  NO New tumors are there, and her C19.9 tumor marker is 25, and below 36 is considered normal.  So this is the best news we could have possible gotten today.  Lisa and I can not thank everyone enough who have prayed for these results.  GOD does listen and has performed a miracle in our lives.  Lisa has been off chemo for 8 weeks now and we have not been doing anything but praying for a cure.  In the last two years this has never happened, every time we would stop treatment the cancer would return.  We meet Tuesday with our oncologist just to confirm everything but it looks like Lisa will have another CAT or PET scan in three months. So please change your prayers to let's keep the cancer from returning.

Re: Prayers are answered

Great news Lisa!!!!
Looks like God answered both of our families' prayers.  We go back in 3 months for another scan. Praying that we receive good new then as well.
Too bad our appointments are several weeks apart or we could meet at Dr Estfan's office.


Re: Prayers are answered

Lisa.....What wonderful news! Enjoy.....and may you have many, many more clear scans!
