Double sixes

Had a consultation with the doctors at the Gemelli today. The news is that the chemo was effective. The tumour has shrunk and the structure of blood vessels feeding it has disintegrated, so the whole mass is dying. This means that the surgery will be the small conic excision surgery. They then have to do a histological examination of the tumour itself but if that goes as expected, the surgery will be the end of it. Cancer will be finished.

I hardly know what to say about it at this point.

Hilary, I have never met you and it has only been half a year since I started reading your blog. That said, I am truly happy to hear this. Our family has included you in our morning and evening prayers and we will continue to do so.
You are a wonderful and dedicated pro-life journalist and I know that the artist in you (still in its infancy stage) will develop and blossom even moreso.
My wedding anniversary is tomorrow and I will offer up in thanksgiving your intentions to Our Lady of the Rosary.
Pax Christi,
Teresa B.

"I hardly know what to say about it at this point."

Then let us sing "Non nobis Domine"!

We'll keep praying, mind.

Miss White,

You have been, and will remain, in my prayers, especially until the results of the histological exam are known.

I pray that God will grant you every grace,

As the son of someone living with Cancer... I don't think there are words.

Keep fighting, Keep praying - in my book, they are the same.

Deo gratias---I'm so happy for you, but won't give up praying until we get the final word on this vicious thing.

Very good news indeed. Delighted and not a little relieved. Prayers continue, but with additional request for even better eyelashes and eyebrows than before.
