For those of you who have asked: my dad's still doing well. He's responding very well to his regimen of chemotherapy, and his pancreatic cancer is currently in check. His doctor continues to remind him that the therapy is not curative, and the most we can hope for is some time, with a good quality of life. At this point, 16 months post-diagnosis, I'd say he's done pretty well on that point. He's eating well, maintaining his weight (it's up from November), and feels pretty good. He was out shoveling snow this week (as we all were around here).
I continue to pray for him. I had a time recently when I thought about having the courage to pray for a miracle, a cure. I realized, finally, that in the light of what I told you above...we already have one. The medicine's working very, very well. I'm thankful for that.
