Cancer Free!!

Praise God!!!!! Nathan's CT scan from yesterday came back clear. Part of the report read: "Interval partial resection of the right lobe of the liver without evidence of a recurrent, or residual tumor". This is wonderful news and we owe all of our thanks and praise to God. He put wonderful doctors like, Dr. Keates, Dr. Gratias, Dr. Bhakta and Dr. Lovvorn to see Nathan through this. He also put Charlotte (the nurse practitioner at the Oncology clinic) into our lives, she was a huge help to every member of our family. The amazing strength and courage that God has given us over the past six months is amazing, we could not have gotten through this without Him and we are so thankful that He was always there and that He will always be here.
Nathan went to the clinic this morning. He now weighs 15 lbs 14 oz (almost to 16!) and his blood counts were great! Praise God he didn't need a blood transfusion. Charlotte is making us an appointment to have his central line removed before we leave for Maine next week. We have now cut back on his feedings in hopes of him starting to take formula from a bottle or a sippy cup.  
Thank you all for your prayers, support and help that you have all given us along the way. May God bless each and everyone of you.
God bless,

Hi there! My name is Renee and my daughter Kennedy was treated at Vandy last year for Leukemia. I just wanted to say we'll be praying for Nathan! I chose to respond to this post because we LOVE Dr. Lovvorn!! I saw his name here and couldn't resist! He totally saved Kennedy's life when she was a tiny baby. (Before cancer)
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello!
