Giving Thanks!

We are happy to report the first GREAT news in 5 months... the scans today showed a 25-30% decrease in all areas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't really ask for much better news. Dan had treatment today, but only about 80% of the full dose. The doctor wanted to put it off a week to allow Dan to enjoy Thanksgiving, but Dan really wanted treatment now to enjoy Christmas (his favorite time of the year).

It's still a long road, but it's definitely moving in the right direction!

Hi Dan and Meg; This news is the best thing anyone could hope for, especially with Christmas right around the corner! May this blessing be the beginning of more and more healing for you, Dan. You are both in my prayers and in my heart. I hope we can work out some way to see one another when you are in the area over Christmas.
