Great news!
« on: March 16, 2009, 10:17:52 AM »
My brother was diagnosed in 2004 with thyroid cancer and non-Hodgkins lymphoma.  He called this morning to tell me the results of his last blood test and he is free from the lymphoma!  His doctor was really excited about it (as my whole family is as well).  We're waiting for a CT scan in a couple of weeks to see if he still has any trace of the thyroid cancer left.  Hopefully that news will be as good.  :)

Lord, have mercy on Jay and grant him healing.  Glory to God!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I sure will.  :)  Thanks, everyone, for your prayers.  My brother is not Orthodox but it's meant a lot to him to have people praying for him during this battle.
