Great News!

The doctor's office just called and let us know that both the bone scan and the PET CT scan came back negative! It is hard to describe the relief everyone here is feeling right now. This makes a huge difference in being able to get to the magic day when the doctor's tell us, "There is no evidence of disease." So, THANK YOU EVERYONE who has been praying and sending good thoughts and keeping us in their hearts over the last few days. We are eternally grateful!

Till next time,
Martha

OH MY GOSH, MARTHA!!! What WONDERFUL news!!! THANK GOODNESS!!!

The scary part was that you were able to arrest it at this stage only because of your "bull dog" tenacity at insisting on getting to the bottom of the problem in spite of doctors telling you everything was okay!!

With this great news, you know where you're headed with your treatment . . . and we're ALL right there beside you every step of the way!! It's time to CELEBRATE!!!

We all (including your kids) miss you!!!

Lots of love,
Dottie

Hi Martha,

I'm not much of blogger but I needed to let you know that we are praying and thinking of you. Archie and I just found out yesterday....and then I realized you were going for the bone scan and would be getting some big news at the end of the day. Not an hour went by yesteday that I was not thinking or praying for you. When Joe came to speak to us last night, I could see the great relief in his eyes with your negative results. I realize that you have a long haul ahead of you from reading all the information on your site. I'm not the best of a friend as I get so busy with my own family and children, my selfishness gets in the way...but I want you to know that I would do anything for you. We have been friends for a very long time and it would make me so happy to have you impose on me now and then. You let me know if there is anything I can do. We will praying each and everyday for you and your family. Much love

Mary

I was thrilled to hear the good news today. Everyone at school is sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. Many people ask me each day how you are doing. You are missed!
