Lisa continues to do remarkably well. She has had almost NO side effects from this last round of chemo. She actually seems to have a little more energy...perhaps the chemo is killing off the cancer? Docs are pleased, we are pleased. Scans will be in two more weeks and will let us know if the chemo is keeping the cancer at bay. If it is we will stay with the chemo for at least two more rounds. If it's not working, we go back to the drawing board to review possible treatments.

Good news for Maranda as well; the neurosurgeon does not see any signs of a chiari malformation any longer and her cyst is shrinking as expected. This means that she does NOT have to have the brain decompression surgery done again..YEAH!! She will need spinal fusion for sure...we just haven't determined if it will be in April or June.

So, good news, finally...yeah!!! Keep praying...we love good news and want MORE of it!
