Remission! Remission! Remission!

Lab work---Great!
PET scan-- Great!
CT scan----Great!
Pulmonary test--Great!

Dr. Bierman said, "All scans look marvelous! Not one abnormal test!" Wow! I have been crying ever since! Her next appointment will be November 17th with Dr. Bierman. She will have lab work but no scans at that time.

Melissa is so excited....even her hair is growing! It is coming in wavy, just as it did when she was a little girl.

This is definitely a time for prayers of thanksgiving! We are so thankful for all of your prayers and support these past 7 months. Again...more tears of joy!

We are planning a remission party, Saturday, September 24th. It will be an Open House from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at our home. It will be very casual. Please come and celebrate with us!

REMISSION is the magical word!  We are truly blessed!
