May 1

The latest news is that there were no visible signs of cancer, but then again, there were no visible signs of cancer for a long time when there was a cancerous tumor growing undetected. Nichole's current pain is due to the many surgeries she's had, and surgeries to fix the surgeries. She is again in much pain due to a fever.

I spoke with Norm today for a short while, and Nichole has been through two small kidney surgeries in the past two days (Monday and Tuesday) as noted in the previous post. She had been down with a fever since Friday, and had been in the hospital once again, trying to figure out what was going on. Since they did have to cut through some muscle tissue to get to the problem, she is now in some pain once again.
Praise the Lord, she got back some results from biopsies taken a few days ago trying to determine if the cancer is back, and the results were negative! Please continue to pray that the chemo would do it's work, though she is on a much smaller dose than at least one of her doctors recommended. God is in control of all things!
Pray that Nichole would not be in severe pain from the continuing kidney problems, so that she would be able to function as a mommy to her precious kiddos and wife to Norm!
Pray also for Norm, as he is obviously bearing a heavy burden as he attempts to make ends meet financially, bears the weight of caring for his wife, is needed to take care of the kids as well, and is remodeling the bathroom which "exploded" (my terms) and needed to be fixed. I think it would be easy to forget that Norm is bearing an extremely heavy weight in this trial as well, so please include him in your prayers!
Please continue to uphold the Greenes in prayer, and continue to encourage them with your notes and phone calls- even comments to them on the blog. All of the encouragement and all of your prayers help to carry them through. Thanks!

Nichole had another surgery, and will be coming home tonight. Norm is still on hiatus, so he is at home doing some construction there.
