We've just seen another miracle. The cancer has NOT spread to his bone marrow! This is great news because of where the tumor is located (spine and left hip). Since the beginning of this, we have been told that ( given the size of the tumor and the length of time it had been growing before being discovered), the cancer had likely metastasized (spread) throughout his body. Having cancer in his bones would certainly complicate the situation.
We've been praying specifically that the cancer would not spread, making his chances of recovery greater. (The spots they saw on his lungs may or may not be cancer, but the treatment would be the same whether it is or not).
Given the aggressiveness of this kind of cancer, the fact that his bones are clean inside and out, is truly a miracle and a result of the many prayers offered for him.
Another blessing is that the pain has subsided in his hip. For months he has been taking pain killers every 4 hours around the clock. But the last few days he has gone for 12 hours before taking another one. He just doesn't hurt as much; we're not sure why.
Thanks for the messages you have written. They have been uplifting to our spirits. We count ourselves extremely blessed to have supportive family and friends.
