"Normal Colon"

If you've ever had a colonoscopy, the words "Normal Colon" sound pretty good coming from your doctor after the procedure is finished. If you've ever had colorectal cancer, the words "Normal Colon" following a colonoscopy are nothing short of a miracle!!

Many of you have been praying for my friends, John and Ellen, throughout John's battle with colon cancer. Yesterday, following a colonoscopy, those were the words the doctor said! He told them that the site of the original tumor is barely visible any more! There may be a few abnormal cells in the area, but visual exam of the site looks "normal"!! The power of two words - normal colon - can bring such joy, excitement, peace, and hope! 

John is still fighting metastatic tumors in his liver. He is on strong, regular chemotherapy. His spirit is strong, his attitude is positive, his belief is unwavering. He is dealing with the many uncomfortable side-effects of his treatment with grace. 

Thank you for your part in this unfolding miracle! Please continue to pray for wisdom for John's doctors, for strength and endurance for John and Ellen, and for complete healing of John's liver.
