I just got a call from Dr. Prystas herself his morning with the good news that my CA-125 levels have gone from 641 to 282 after my third chemo treatment. The blood levels of the tumor marker are now less than one-tenth what they were when I began treatment. I am completely overwhelmed with love and gratitude for my loving Heavenly Father and Savior who are continually mindful of me and my family, and are blessing us and granting the deepest desires of our hearts. As I look forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior this week, I am so thankful to our Father in Heaven for the gift of His Son. My heart is full of gratitude to my Savior for His life, His obedience to the Father, and His perfect example for me. I am so grateful for His atonement. These past 3 months I have come to know on a little deeper level just a portion of what He suffered for me in the garden of Gesthemane and on the cross. How thankful I am that I have not had to do this alone--He has been with me always! How I wish that I could speak with the tongue of angels, and fully express my love and testimony for Him. I am also so very grateful for the faith and prayers of my family and friends. I know that He hears and answers prayers--we have been the witnesses of His miracles. Merry Christmas and all my love to you at this beautiful season!--Kim
