Lisa had her scan today and it was clear! Lisa and her family are so relieved and happy. Had they found anything they would have had to go to Huston Texas to get any further treatment, but this was the best news they could get!
Lisa will not be doing anymore chemo, at least for awhile, and she will have a nice Christmas break! After 3 months she will go in for another scan to make sure that everything is still good.

I think that is about the best Christmas present the family could get right now!

Oh and by the way Gail is doing well too. She has quite a few stitches across her cheek to her ear and then down the side of her face by her ear, (sort of like a mini face lift!) Anyway, she said she is doing well, I have not heard of any results yet though.

Thanks for you prayers.

This isn't going to be an update on Lisa, although she is doing pretty good and even got to go on a church retreat with her small group...This is about Gail.

Gail went to the dermatologist last week to have some moles checked out. Her moles were fine but the found a spot on her cheek just under her eye that they were concerned about and so the did a biopsy right then. The results came back that it was melanoma and she will be having surgery to remove it tomorrow. I guess there are 4 stages of melanoma and Gail's is at stage 2.5. She said that stage 3 would require chemo. They will be removing piece the size of a nickle or maybe up to a quarter to get a good margin. Because it is so close to her eye they will need to take extra care when they pull the skin together so that her eye does not droop. Of course she is nervous but with all Lisa has gone through she feels like she can't say much. Pls keep them all in your prayers.... Lisa's scan is coming up at the end of the month and they are really praying for it to be clear. If something shows up they will have to do some serious talking about the options they have left to treat Lisa.
