Letter From Gena

The following is an update from Gena that she emailed to our ladies' prayer chain online:

Dear Sisters,

Thank you so very much for all of the cards, calls, visits, food, money, time, etc that you have given to Adam and I at this difficult time. We have truly seen the love of God in all that you have done for us. We could not make it without you. We consider all of you to be our family and we are so thankful for you.

This afternoon, we went to see the neuro-oncologist at Vanderbilt and got a very good report. Adam had a dysembroplastic neuroepilthelial tumor, grade 1. It is the best kind of tumor that you can have. It is cancer simply by definition. Cancer in the brain is different than tumors in other parts of the body, for they do not mastisize and spread to other areas. His tumor was unusual because it usually occurs in children. Because it is such a slow growing type of tumor they believe that it has been there for years. Neither Dr. Weaver (the surgeon) nor Dr. Moots (the oncologist) think that the symptoms that he was having had anything to do with the tumor. Therefore we are lead to believe that our Almighty God preformed a miracle through our eye doctor on October 17th. The only treatment for this type of tumor is regular MRIs to make sure that it is not growing. If a scan does show that it is growing (over the years), then he will have to have another operation or possibly radiation.

We are so thankful for all of your prayer and support. God is healing Adam. We praise God through whom all blessings flow! We love you all.

With love,
* * * Hallelujah! * * *

Hey! I don't even know the full story of this, but I am so glad that what he has is not fatal! Eye doctors really can tell a lot of things just by your vision...brain tumors, diabetes, glaucoma, and so much more! That is amazing...I think I would give that dr. a big hug!
