The Results Are In...

    Praise the Lord we have another positive report to tell.  Jeff had his MRI yesterday morning in Ann Arbor.  There has been no new growth!! Our prayers have been answered again, thank you to all who have prayed in agreement with us!  Both Jeff's doctor and radiologist were very pleased with the results as well. 

    Saturday, March 9 was also Jeff's 24th birthday.  We celebrated by having a surprise birthday party for him at a restaurant.  I think he was pretty surprised, he sure seemed to be.  We had such a great time gathering for his birthday!  We are truly blessed with a wonderful, loving and supporting family!

    As of right now there is no change in his treatment plan.  He will continue the physical therapy and chemo as scheduled and have another scan in probably three months!  Thanks again for all the prayers, love and support!  Keep up the great work :)

Below are some photos from his surprise party

2 Years and Counting!


     It has already been almost 2 years since we were informed of Jeff's brain tumor.  There have been both good and bad times in between and we are so thankful everyday to have our quirky, funny, cocky Jeff here with us!  His results of the MRI taken on January 14 were very good!  I realize now I had not yet posted this information and I apologize.  There was NO new growth and the current tumor looks to be stagnant.  Both the radiologist and his doctor were more pleased than they thought they would be with the results, our God is so Good!!  Below are the images from his previous and his current scan...
The scans on the left are those from September and the ones on the right are from January.  Swelling has gone down and the tumor has subsided.  The tumor is the kinda white stuff...
                                                   
 
   Currently Jeff is taking chemo pills about 5 times a month and going in for chemo every other
Friday.  He is also going to physical therapy a couple times a week just to keep him moving.  We are all definitely looking forward to the Spring so we can get out and do the outdoor stuff we love to do!  Jeff does struggle with his memory and understanding, your prayers for this would be greatly appreciated!!
 
  Monday, March 11 is his next scan in Ann Arbor.  We are believing for even better news!  He will go to have his scan and then an appointment with Dr. Mommoser and the radiologist after that.  We should have results early afternoon.  Bring on the good news and bring on the sunshine!!!  Thank you for your continued prayers, we have seen the miraculous work of God in Jeff!
 
 
Jeff, Andrew, Tonya, Kassie, Dylan, Justin and Makayla...Another Mexico memory!
