Praise Report and Prayer Request

The other day, I posted a prayer request for Alfredo, a friend of mine with a brain tumor.  Yesterday his wife writes:

Well it has been an eventful day. Results of Alfredo’s pre-op brain MRI showed that the tumor had SHRUNK by 95% compared to the MRIs taken 15 & 16 days ago!!! Yes, really, down 95%!

For this reason our surprised neurosurgeon Dr. S canceled the surgery, thank God. It’s NOT a glioma (Dr. S’s assumption from the data up to now). We are not out of the woods yet, there has clearly been serious damage to Alfredo’s short-term memory, and a belief by Dr. S that some kind of brain cancer caused it. But new appt with neuro oncologist first thing tomorrow morning should give us some clues to what, and how do we fight on. Thanks be to God and thank you all for your love and prayers, please keep on praying!

Father, we praise and glorify your name for your wonderful answer to our prayer and ask that you would continue healing Alfredo completely through Christ our Lord.  Give his caregivers skill, knowledge, wisdom and compassion and give grace, peace, strength and hope to all who love him.  Mother Mary, St. Luke, and St. Peregrine, pray for them.

    That’s wonderful! My mom died of a glioblastoma in 2009 and I know how scary they are, so that is great news that that is not what they are dealing with. Regardless of the type, brain cancer can be unpredictable and scary, not just because of the illness but because of the changes that can happen in the patient during and after treatment. I’m glad that there seems to be no need for surgery. I’ll be praying for them!

  • we will dutifully pray in agreement with you for Alfredo’s speedy and full recovery for Alfredo from the brain tumor, as well as the return of his short-term memory.
