I have got two very big reasons to shout HOORAY!! We have great news to share. First of all, several of you have been asking about the results of my pet scan. Again, the news "couldn't be better." We talked to the nurse in our GI doctor's office today, and she said that everything was clear--that there is no sign of cancer. The endoscopy showed that my stomach and intestine were perfectly clear. Isn't that the most terrific news? We feel so incredibly grateful to our Father in Heaven for His merciful answer to our prayers. WOW--we are so fortunate. Spence's colonoscopy also showed good results, so we feel very blessed. The news just couldn't be any better. With cancer treatment, you have to just count your blessings along the way--you don't know what might be coming "around the bend," but we are ever so grateful right now. Thanks again a million times for your prayers and love and concern. We have certain people in our life who are just always aware of what is going on, and so quick to show their concern. Bless you all for caring.
The second reason we have to rejoice is the surprise early birth of our second grandchild--born on Mother's Day. Our daughter, Emily, was due on May 25th, but her baby decided to make her a mother on Mother's Day itself! She had a baby boy, who they have named Spencer Christopher (what an honor for Spence to have another grandson named after him)Johnson, and they are going to call him SJ! We are thrilled that he came, and that he seems to be doing well. We fly up to Utah in the morning, and can't wait to meet him, and to see Emily and Michael. So we feel very richly blessed right now--and so very thankful for the goodness of our Heavenly Father to our family. I am going to try to post a picture of him so you can see--and of Emily too. She looks darn good for just having a baby! She's always been photogenic, even after delivering a baby. :) Love to all, Louise
