Good News

This is a quick post to tell everyone that Gorman had a “remarkably clear” MRI, to quote Dr. Nabors. Plus they removed the PICC line, said all his lab work is normal. What a great word, normal. They put him on 6 weeks of oral antibiotics as a precaution. All the docs refer to the concern of the staph infection getting into the bone, right there in his head beside the site of the surgeries. I haven’t researched this and actually don’t want to know how bad that could be but if they think he needs more antibiotics, I’ll take their word for it.
This morning Gorman sooo enjoyed a shower and the sheer joy of using his left arm. We are blessed and so grateful to God for the healing of this staph infection.

Now back to fighting cancer. Tomorrow he begins again with an Avastin infusion. We’re so looking forward to this you’d think it’s champagne being pumped into him!
