We are jumping for joy!!!!


Just a few minutes ago, our oncologist, Dr. Graham, called PERSONALLY, to tell us that David's liver enzymes were back to normal and the CEA, a number that measures the amount of cancer activity, has gone down 2 points. As he said, with as bad as David had gotten a few weeks ago, and as high as his CEA had gotten, this was a very quick turn around, and he was very pleased and wanted to deliver the news himself. ISN'T THAT GREAT?? And again, could there BE a better doctor for us than Dr. Graham? He could have had a nurse call us, or what most doctors are doing lately, not even calling us at all!!! That is just another sign that we are where we need to be. This kind of personal attention is absolutely wonderful.

So, HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!! Just thought it needed to be shared!!!

    Bob and I are so happy to hear some good news about Dave. I know you all are on cloud nine. That was nice of the Doctor to call and give you the news himself. What a special man.
