12/29/11 - A Rare Case (of good)

Clinic story to report - and praises are in order.  Josh and Adam went to clinic on Tuesday.  Adam had two chemo injections.  Not a big deal.  We see different doctors all the time.  There are several in oncology/hematology plus it is a teaching hospital so you will get the occasional doctor in their rotations. But this week they saw Dr. Gomez (who I haven't seen since our hospital stay - though Josh had seen him once since. Remember the poor cornered doctor from day 1?).  Gomez shared that he was surprised he hasn't heard anything about Adam - at all!  This is good news and rare because he hears about problems patients encounter.  For instance, if Adam had a bad reaction to a therapy, anesthesia, or any drug he is given.  Or if Adam had gotten sick especially the flu (which we are extremely susceptible with Adam's fluctuating immune system).  Gomez said it was extremely unusual that none of these things have happened and that Adam hadn't even spent a night at the hospital since his original visit.  Now, we wouldn't have had any way of knowing this (not like we have had anything to compare his progress to), so it was wonderful news!  As mentioned before, no news is truly good news! Praises for not only answer to our prayer of strength and healing for Adam but for the abundant answer of extra protection and grace!

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus ~ Phil 4:19
