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.
