miracles do happen...

every single prayer, thought, candle lit.. whatever it was you did for my brother in law, Paul has worked. Wrapping him in that cocoon of love & light has manifested a miracle.
yesterday, Dr. Teo successfully removed 100% of the brain tumour.. which was the size of a medium potato - 5cm x 10cm.. Paul woke from the operation and after recovery, apparently, he proceeded to eat a sandwich. The prognosis is good. He will most probably have to have radiation mop up to kill of any rogue cells that may have been left and he may not have full control of his legs.. but hey.. that is a small price to be paying....

we are all in a little bit of shock, still numb from being told a week or so ago that there was no hope.. this has reinforced my thoughts of taking control of our own health and always seeking a second opinion and to never, ever give up hope...

thankyou all for the love, care & support for us .. please keep Paul in your prayers and thoughts as he continues to heal.
