Good News for Jack

More from Barb:
I wanted to update you on Jack....
Today, we found out that the CAT scan shows no signs of the cancer spots that were there last month. The doctors didn't expect this so this is wonderful news. However, they did see a shadow in the area where they did the biopsy last month. So today, they did a PET scan which should tell if the spot is a tumor or not. If it is a tumor, the results should be a positive number. If it isn't a tumor, the results should be a negative number. Unbelievably, the result was a 0. The doctors have never had that happen before, so they have no idea what to think.
So, since the chemo seems to have helped, they are going to start another round starting next Tuesday. After that, they will do another MRI to see if there is any change with the shadow.
This has given us a bit of hope...God is so good!!
We are so thankful for everyone's prayers!!
Once more, Jack's prayer:
Venerable Louis and Zelie Martin, Servants of God,
You offered many prayers for your own sick children.
We unite our prayers with yours for Jack's healing.
May God look favorably on your intercession and, in His Mercy, grant us our request.
May His will be done in all things.

Venerable Louis and Zelie, pray for us!
