MRI Update

On Friday, Clay had his 4th MRI since starting this clinical trial in the Fall.  Yesterday the three of us went downtown for Clay's monthly appointment and to review the results.  We pulled up the scans from October 2012 and from Friday, so JD could see the changes in one clear comparison. They are truly amazing, and a beautiful thing to see. No white spots (indicating tumor spread) no white enhancement (indicating tumor cell activation) no bulging tumor crowding out brain and fluid.  More black (fluid). More space -- literally, in Clay's brain; and figuratively -- for us all to breathe.  After seeing the smile on his face, Clay's doctor said to me, "This is why I get out of bed in the morning."  Amen to that.


  1. Amen, indeed!A big smile and tears of happiness, too.

  2. God is good! My heart is filled with happiness!
