Good News

We had another CT scan done yesterday at University Hospital. The results say that the mass is getting smaller. WOOO HOOO!

Now I don't know if it was always just pneumonia, or if we had a miracle but it doesn't matter. God has given us the gift of a second chance at life.

He gave us an experience that puts our mortality into perspective. Too often, we go through life thinking bad things only happen to other people. This has taught us that we want to spend more time doing things we enjoy. Bryan has realized that the things he has always wanted to do, and put off, need to be done before it really is too late.

The doctor wants to see him again in 6 weeks to make sure it's all gone but for now, we are celebrating.

I guess it is better to be safe than sorry, but doctors can really scare the pants off you. Just the words, "mass in you lung" is enough to send you reeling but wow, I'm glad it is ending for now.

Now we just wait for Bry to get over the pneumonia and feel good enough to work again. Halleluia!!!!!

that is SO great! I'm still in "crisis mode" (for you) and I'm not going to totally relax until 6 weeks from now when you post again and announce that the mass is totally gone and all blood work is good etc... but at least I won't be quite so worried until then.

love you! Now you and bryan go "live like you were dying"
