Good News

Gorman’s MRI was clear!  Needless to say, we are praising God and thanking you all for praying for us.

Gorman will now begin the stronger doses of Temodar five days each month.  We met with Dr. Nabors and he talked with us about a couple of clinical trials that might be appropriate for Gorman but he has to get started with this maintenance phase of chemo first.  We will return to UAB in two months for another MRI and an appointment with Dr. Nabors and discuss the clinical trials then.

We still have a tough row to hoe ahead of us but, at least for two months, we can breathe a sign of relief and rest a little easier.

We are anxious to go visit our kids (Ft. Collins, CO and Santa Monica, CA) but the oncologist suggested Gorman get through one round of Temodar and see how he does before we make any plans.

Again, thanks to each one of you for your encouraging messages and notes, which  have so helped us to keep on keeping on.  Your prayers have surrounded us and we know God is with us through this.  Gorman’s surgery was three months ago today and he has walked with us everyday.

    i just wanted to praise the Lord with you and i can say that Mr. Gorman is a fighter and he want quit. I have been reading your reports and can see how the Lord has blessed. You both have been a blessing to me and an encouragement. Mr. Gorman is certainly blessed to have a woman so faithful encouraging him. From my experience in life i have found that behind every good man is a good woman. Beverly, you remind me so much of my own wife, thank you for taking care of Gorman. We are praying for your strength as well. Your words bring me to tears as i think of Mr. Gorman and how much he has meant to me. He has always encouraged me to be my best not just at what i do for Neel- Schaffer, but in my daily walk as well. For Mr. Gorman: I’ll be playing in the MDOT golf tournament next week with those great clubs i got from you that i’ll cherish from now on and not get rid of ever. They are a good reminder to whisper a prayer for you every time i take a club out of my bag next week. Hope you get to go see your family and grandkids. I’m coaching my granddaughter’s fast pitch softball team this year. She managed to hit two inside the park homeruns in our last game. Made grandpa really proud. I have another grandson playing in the 9/10 year old baseball. He pitches and plays first base and is doing really good. We, Betty and I, spend most of our time at the ball fields. By the way i have 6 more grandkids and now one great-grandbaby boy. Looking forward to teaching him about Christ, hunting, fishing, baseball, and football. Enough. Take care and remember you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  13. Such good news!!! Our prayers of Thanksgiving go to our Faithful God.
