Good News

Loved Ones,

I have good news! I have so many good things to report!

Here's the most exciting news: Ray's bilirubin in his liver is almost to the normal range! The bili went down by 50 percent in the last week! We are overjoyed! All of Ray's liver numbers are improving, even the one that lagged behind last time. Praise the Lord!!!

More news: Ray is going to have another scan on July 11 to check the progress! We are so excited! We will be praying without ceasing for this round of chemo as this (and the last two) will be reflected in the scan.

Ok, and last, in the last ten days Ray gained six and a half pounds! He went in for this round two pounds higher than last time. This is wonderful!!

It's pretty exciting to have all of this to report! So as you can see, round three of chemo at the clinic went very smoothly!

I don't even know what else to say except thank you for your prayers and WOW, they are being answered!!

We know that the next few days will be tired ones for Ray but it sure is exciting to think of the reason for the tiredness! There is a battle raging and the Lord is on our side!

Here is our verse for tonight: "I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders." Psalm 9:1

not alone and not afraid --
