The Joy of Miracles

Miracles happen every day, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them all around you.
~Jon Bon Jovi

Hepatosplenic T-Cell Lymphoma is supposed to be an aggressive form of cancer. It should quickly spread to the liver and spleen. So when we went to the doctor today and found that both the spleen and the liver were clean, simply put, we were elated! Well, elated may not be the best word, but it is about as good as I can think right now. There are no words to tell the happiness and excitement we got from hearing that news!

I should stop there. But the rest must be said.

There is still one test the doctor is waiting for on the spleen. She even told us that she could recant the words she said today if that comes back with a positive hit. But even if it doesn't, she is pulling a panel of oncologists, pathologists, and hemotologists on Friday to have a pow-wow over Tiffany's findings. When we asked about the bone marrow test, she didn't have a good answer. The doctors words were that this was a 'mystery'. From my understanding, together the panel will discuss the original findings as well as the additional tests and biopsies and come to a consensus as to how to proceed. So we are cautiously optimistic, as they say, going forward. After having been to two doctors confirming the original results, it would appear that all the prayers, fasting, faith, and friendship have done something like unto a modern day miracle.

I don't want to get ahead of myself, don't want to get too much hope up yet, but I cannot help but feel excited for what I thought was going to be a difficult next few months.

With that said, we ask for continued prayers as we look forward to the results from Friday's little pow-wow. Don't stop now. Things are just getting good. :)
