Wayne, an update

As you know, Wayne was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  The location of his tumor was actually behind and attached to the pancreas.  He has been through radiation and is still taking chemo.  His tumor has shrunk to the point that it was invisible on a CT scan.  It can be seen when a scope is done, but is very small.  He has had some pain and the doctor has permanently deadened some nerves around the pancreas.  He will continue this chemo treatments for a few more weeks and see the doctor again.

All things considered, Wayne is doing great.  We are so very thankful for God’s graciousness and healing power.

Pancreatic Cancer is No Match For God’s Healing Power

I spoke with Wayne last night.  He had been to the doctor to get the results of his latest CT scan.  The doctor told Wayne that his tumor could not be seen on the scan!!! There was considerable scarring from the radiation treatments, but no tumor!  Wayne asked the doctor, “So God performed a miracle?”  To which the doctor replied, “I’m not going to say that, but something miraculous did happen here.”  Our response? “Well, whatever.”  We are all taking this as God’s miraculous healing power.

The doctor wants to continue chemo for about three more months and then do another scan just as added ‘insurance.  He told Wayne that he was not going to say that the cancer is gone, because it could be just reduced and hidden among the scar tissue.  However, he did admit that Wane was doing amazingly well.  In the midst of the latest round of chemo Wayne has felt well, suffered no pain, and has gained weight.

We are all excited, praising and thanking God for his Grace and Goodness to Wayne and Glynn.  We all realize that because pancreatic cancer is usually aggressive, it could raise its ugly head at any given point in time, once again placing Wayne in front of its life threatening jaws.  For this reason, we are all, especially Wayne and Glynn, enjoying this moment of strength, and yes, healing which is a precious gift from God.
