Good News Good News Good News

Did I mention that we have good news?

Meredith's dad Gary, and I, just met with the surgeon who informed us that everything went well. They were able to keep part of BOTH of her ovaries. We knew going into surgery that one would come out for sure and maybe both. Since imaging can't tell the doctor's exactly what is going on there was a lot of uncertainty going into the operating room. It turns out that they were able to remove only the infected part of the left ovary and the part of the right that used to be infected. God raised the bar of the "best case scenario, " and I'm not going to complain.

Just when you thought the good news was over...

IT JUST KEEPS COMING!

Last night we got a call from Dr. Bernstein and got the results of Meredith's PET (full body) scan. Other than the tumor on her ovary, which they just took out, there is NO MORE CANCER. This scan isn't 100% accurate and she may still have to go through some more light chemo or radiation, but there are no more new hot spots.

Praise God ...Yee-ha!

Well that just makes our day. We wish we've kept better contact, but we've not stopped praying for this news. Praise God whose compassion and ability are limitless, and we pray that you will experience Him in a whole new way through this ordeal (Job 42:5).

We love you,

Matt and Alicia

Scott and I were talking about this great news last night and he said Meredith cancer free and Micah will be the two biggest blessings of our year! We'll continue to pray that it is completely gone and no more chemo would be nice too. We love you so much and miss you both! Mel
