Prayer and Praise

Hey Y'all! I know in the last couple days, I've requested prayer for my father-in-law but didn't give much detail.

About 2 weeks ago, we found out that his lymphoma cancer has returned. It would've been 3 years this year since the last time. The last time, he only had to go through radiation. After having a full body CT scan, they found the cancer in his throat (just like the last time) and they found more cancer in his chest lymph nodes. 2 Satrudays ago, one of the lumps in his throat grew to the size of a baseball over night. He received his first chemo treatment last Wednesday. The medicine he's been taking has been shrinking the tumors and we are so grateful for that. We also got some good news today. We found out that the cancer has not spread to his bone marrow so his cancer is considered stage 2 not stage 4. PRAISE THE LORD! We are still waiting for the definite type of cancer that he has to come back in the biopsy. Please keep all of us in your thoughts and prayers. He will have his 2nd chemo treatment earlier that what we thought, but we think that it will be for the best because it is helping shrink the tumors. I know this will be a long road ahead and it will definitely be hard on my hubby and his sister since we live 8 hours away from his parents.

I'm so blessed to have a great support group in the blogging world! Thank you!
