Some Great News Today

Hey guys, just a quick note to let y’all know where things stand.  The oncologist came by this morning and said that the pathology results are back, and that the spot where they removed the polyp was the only place that had any cancer!  This means that, basically, no further cancer treatment is needed.  Lintilla will have to see the oncologist for the next five years, and after that they can declare her cancer free!

Now, we just need a couple of bodily things to happen that haven’t yet, so she can get out of the hospital.  We’ll be here 1 extra day, as it is.  They’ve tried to let things happen naturally, but Lintilla is swelled up like a bowling ball, so they’ve decided to give her some medicine to get things moving.  Those of you who have had abdominal surgery know what I’m talking about. 

But we won’t dwell on that, I’ve asked people to pray that relief comes, and it will.  But for now, we will celebrate the good prognosis!
