Madeleine continues to gain strength each day. It has been so good to be home and out of the hospital! We took a few short walks in the neighborhood yesterday, and the fresh air was wonderful.
She has been recovering well other than fighting a little nausea, and her appetite has been slow to return because of that Her pain is also getting a little less each day.
We got a call from her doctor tonight. The initial reports are showing that there was only one lymph node with cancer - the swollen one on the left - and the rest so far look clear. We should get the final report in a few days. This is very good news and a real answer to prayer.
The doctor also said that there is some concern about the swollen cancerous node they removed. They are not sure if they took a wide enough margin, so there is a chance that they may have to go back in and do that. Again, this decision is waiting for the final results and consultation with the specialists.
Please pray for wisdom and clear direction as the doctors try to determine the best way to go. We are so grateful to God for covering us and for the encouraging news.
Thank you again for your continued prayers for Madeleine. We sense your support and are so thankful for each of you.
