All is well

Great news!!! We went to the doctors yesterday and he said that the blood work was actually better than he had ever seen it. When the nurse told Evan that his numbers were elevated, she didn't know that it had been higher in the past. Normal is about 50 and Evan is at 53 but prior to this test it had been in the 80's.

The Doctor said that the problems Evan has been experiencing were a result of his pancreas not creating enough digestive enzymes. Evan is now well on his way to feeling fantastic.

I love modern technology... Evan had his CT scan of his liver yesterday as well and we were able to immediately see the results. His liver has never looked better!!! The tumors are continuing to die even the small ones that were not specifically targeted by the radiation treatments.

We couldn't possibly have received better news!! Evan is going to be around for many years to come. This is a direct result of your prayers and the Lords will. Thank you for the many sustaining prayers you have offered on our behalf, there are no words that could fully describe our gratitude.
