Thanks For All The Prayers
Gorman and I continue to walk around saying, “Thank you, Lord; thank you, Lord”. This last MRI took place on the one year anniversary of his surgery. The past year has been quite a ride but God has held our hands every step of the way and we are so so so grateful for all our praying friends. We have truly felt those prayers and know that God has heard them.
On Wednesday, Dr. Nabors showed us a comparison of this MRI with the previous one. At the site where the tumor was removed, there is a small “spot” and it is more pronounced this time; however, it does not show up as red and therefore, it has no blood flow and he thinks it’s just scar tissue. He said they would continue to watch it and if it becomes more pronounced, he might need to do a biopsy to check it out. Last summer we met a lady who lives in Birmingham who also had had a glioblastoma. Dr. Nabors did her surgery two and one-half years ago and she’s doing fine. She did say that she had to have a second surgery to remove scar tissue. If that becomes necessary for Gorman, we can deal with that. Anything other than a returning tumor we can handle.
Next week we are taking a Mississippi tour. Neel-Schaffer, Inc. is having a party to celebrate its 30th anniversary so we are going to Jackson for that; first time we will have been there in 14 months. Then we are spending some time in Vicksburg and touring around. I’m calling it Gorman’s sentimental journey!
He is in the middle of his five days of chemo pills right now. He feels a little light-headed but that’s all. Actually, he’s in the kitchen right now working on dinner: seared tuna with a soy, ginger, cilantro sauce and mushroom and asparagus risotto. Life is good.
