Just a brief update for you all.  Dan had a CT Scan today (Monday the 5th - I think this did not get posted then) to determine the state of the tumor after the treatments.  He will meet with his UT doctors on Wednesday to determine what was learned from the scan and also recent blood work that he has had.  If the chemo and radiation has done its job with the help of the Lord and the wisdom of the doctors, then the tumor should have contracted and slowed to the point that surgery is recommended.  Dan continues to strengthen each day and is back to his daily exercise, building a bit more each day.

I continue to give thanks to God for the way He has strengthened Dan through this ordeal spiritually, physically and emotionally.  I am most certain that your prayers have been a source of encouragement for Dan.  For those of you that may not have seen him lately, you would be amazed at his appearance and his attitude - both attributable to his faith and God’s provision.

After Wednesday, there will be a Monday (14th) visit to Duke to the surgeon to determine if an operation is warranted.
