Doctor's Appointment

What did the doctor say?

Dennis saw his doctor today.  The doctor, after reviewing all of the MRI reports said that what they show is pseudo-progression.  In essence, this is a false progression.  This is what he had expected to see at this point. 

He told us that his observation of Dennis in general was encouraging.  He felt that Dennis was doing better functionally than he was the last time he saw him.  Dennis has also been saying that he feels like his walking is better recently but this confirmation of that from the doctor was encouraging.

Dennis will continue on the current treatment until mid-April when they will do another MRI. 

What's happening now?

We don't have a lot planned right now other than the normal day-to-day things.  Like everyone, we can't wait for this winter to end.

On Saturday, our small group from church was at the house and helped us with a couple of projects.  The men installed railings for the steps from the garage into the house, installed a new water softener and fixed our kitchen light.  The ladies helped me organize Brooklyn's toys.  We loved the fellowship and time with these precious friends. 

What should we pray for?

  • Pray that this treatment continues to work.
  • Pray for Dennis' walking and balance that it continues to improve.
  • Pray for peace and encouragement on an on-going basis for each of us.
