For this Mile Marker we have chosen the following scripture:
Psalm 10:17 - “You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry.”
We had asked in the last post for encouragement, and we are SO THANKFUL the Lord provided encouragement with the results we received! Overall the majority of metastatic lesions and metastatic lymph nodes have decreased in size. PRAISE, PRAISE, PRAISE JESUS!!!!
This is MUCH better news than we had expected! Based on the symptoms that John had recently been experiencing, we were surprised and absolutely thrilled that the symptoms are not a sign of the cancer progressing!!!
With that being said, the bone scans identified mild osteoarthritis and possibly additional rib fractures. So over the next couple weeks John & Jill will partner with Dr. Penhos to discuss breathing and bone density for osteoporosis, and come up with a plan! And will continue to forge ahead with what has been working so far in terms of the cancer treatment.
Again, we are overjoyed and relieved that the majority of the cancer has continued to reduce in size. Please continue to pray for complete healing for John and join us in Praising God for His love & encouragement in His perfect timing!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your continued love and prayers for John & the family!
In His Love,
The Gooney Gurneys
