The nurse called and said that the scan they did today was good news!!! Praise
GOD. She told me 3 or 4 things--all good she declared, but the Dr will explain
them to me more fully. She was on the phone and I was in the car, but I DID get
the message that it was all good news. And the main result---it showed that
there had been a "dramatic decrease in the size of the tumor". That I understood
and I am so grateful that the chemo is having a positive effect. I am still
having the pain, but if the radiology goes forward, that may subside as well.



 :D That's all good news!
Thanks for sharing, David.

Dear Shasta, I'm so sorry you have to go through all this pain, but so glad to hear that the treatment is working!  Lots of prayers coming your way!  :-*

Another update from Shasta via email -


Just a quick note, David. More good news, praise God. The MRI was good according to the neurosurgeon and they are working on scheduling radiation surgery to kill even more of the cancer cells in the tumor that is already shrinking. I was sent to talk to an oncological radiologist and he thinks it will take 3 treatments, one hour each, and one day apart for each one. His nurse told me I should be able to go back to work after. That is such good news, too.  More later---very tired. but remind me not to complain....God is blessing me abundantly. Love you! TTYL.

Thanks for the update on Shas!  It sounds like everything is moving along very well!

Please let her know I'm keeping her in my thoughts and prayers.
