My Dad - Good News!!

My mom just called and they have just left the doctor’s office and my dad’s most recent CT scan shows that the tumor is completely gone and he is officially in remission. They will continue the chemo until December and do re-checks for the next 5 years.

Thank all of you so much for your prayers and good wishes.

(For those of you who are new here, my dad was diagnosed with lymphoma earlier this year after the doctors discovered a tumor on his pancreas. As we've been told all along, this was the "good kind of cancer" to have as opposed to the original diagnosis of cancer of the pancreas.)

Edited to add:
One of my sister's friends just sent us an e-mail that says: "He is the TUMINATOR! Ha, I kill me!" Pamy
