A Good MRI

My blogging break didn't last long. So many of you have faithfully prayed for us that I wanted to share some good news this time.

I have been concerned about the results from Ed's MRI since his ability to focus was declining, and his fatigue was increasing. He didn't feel as bad as in November, but the symptoms were worrisome.

But Ed's MRI this week was a huge improvement from his last one in November. The inflammation was decreased, and the tumor/scar tissue areas were much smaller. We haven't had an MRI this encouraging for many, many months. The new medication he started in November must be having the desired affect.

We are adjusting some of his medications in hopes that we can increase his focus and energy level. Once again I have to practice gratefulness for what I have instead of focusing on the losses. I try to enjoy today without worrying that next month's MRI could move in a worse direction. We try to find things we can do as a family with Ed's limited energy.


This afternoon, just for fun, we drove over to the Gettysburg Battlefield. We climbed some monuments, scrambled over rocks, and shared a winter picnic. We've had so many rainy days that even though it wasn't sunny, the day felt pleasant. 


Thanks again for your prayers. We couldn't walk this road without prayer.

"The Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace." 
Psalm 29:11
