When we had the call to go in for the results we knew it was not likely to be good news. The consultant was pretty frank about things - the tumour appears to have returned in the same proportions within the time that he was off treatment. The prognosis has changed somewhat. The next thing is a meeting with the surgeon this afternoon with a view to operating this Thursday.
Pads was pretty scared but the pastor was able to come straight over and he's chatting now.
Pads asked me to read from Psalm 46 after we were talking about the result earlier. If you are finding this news difficult you might like to scan these verses too.
