Yesterday Dad and I attended the final M. D. Anderson radiation therapy evaluation. The highlight of the visit was viewing his lung scans, and comparing his pre-radiation and post-radiation scans. Dr. Chronowski pointed out some scar tissue in the most recent scan, but the tumor was obviously not in the picture. “That’s amazing,” Dad said. Yes, indeed, it was an amazing picture, and I wish that I could have posted it here for everyone to rejoice over. Although Dad’s cancer status remains at Stage 3A, he is definitely healthier than when he arrived three months ago.
Dad reflected on the M. D. Anderson team that coordinated and administered his cancer treatment. “Their goodness, their kindness,” Dad said, “makes me cry when I think of it. I don’t think I’ll ever get over how sweet, how good they were to me.”
Dad and I are packed, and ready to head north this morning. We’ll be praising God the Father all the way . . . great things He hath done.
