The light at the end of the tunnel is either the exit or a train coming the other way. 

We have reason for cautious optimism. Melanie’s doctor called tonight, yes, at 8:30 on a Saturday night to tell her that he got the results of the biopsy two days early and the results were negative for cancer. Now, to be clear, there were definitely cancerous cells in the tissue from the miscarriage and he had assured us that there was a very small chance that the there was no cancer in the uterus. Could we be in the small window?

Of course, we can’t get too excited yet. The doctor wants to be cautious and do another check, which I wholeheartedly support. Next week sometime Melanie will go in for a hysteroscopy (a small camera inserted into the uterus) and a D&C to make sure. The biopsy could have missed the cancer cells. We must not get too excited, but we remain hopeful.

I ask you to continue to pray for Melanie for a complete healing and for the Holy Spirit to guide her doctors and nurses and the lab technicians and everyone.

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, pray for her.

  • Dom,

      I just read about your wife has been going through. Man, it must be really scary for both of you, to say the least. Its good to hear the first tests came back negative but I will pray for you and your wife that the second tests come back negative as well.
