Hello all! It’s Angela again.  Well, yesterday Bobby had his post-op appt with the surgeon.  They removed his staples and now he’s much more comfortable.  But the really amazing, super duper, awesome news is that the pathology on tumor came back!  And, drum roll please…the tumor was OVER 95% DEAD!  Also, the lymphnodes were clear and they got clean margins on the tumor!  We were so excited! Even the surgeon said, you can’t get better than that. Bobby cried and I couldn’t help but exclaim, “Praise the LORD!”   On the flip side, the oncologist wants to start Bobby’s follow-up chemo in just two weeks.  This pretty much took the wind out of our sails.  Only two more weeks for Bobby to recover? We understand the reasoning, but it’s pretty discouraging.  We’ve decided to just take one day at a time and focus on all the miracles that God has performed through this trial.   HE’s been so faithful and gracious to us and we KNOW that HE will continue to show HIS faithfulness.  The pathology report is such an answer to prayer.  We are thanking the LORD for killing that nasty tumor!!!  Bobby is still recovering really well.  Some requests would be that he would gain the weight back that he lost during the 5 days in the hospital (about 10lbs) and that he’d get his appetite back (hence making it easier to gain weight).  He’s been taking short walks and enjoying the brief sun breaks we’ve had. 🙂  Just pray that God would work a miracle in Bobby’s body in the next two weeks, so that he can enter the chemo with strength!  Blessings to all…
