A Miracle

I am just back from four wonderful but very emotional days in Bogotá, Colombia. We found Ines in a critical but stable condition after serious surgery on June 22. There was a tumor that the doctor did not try to remove as it was swollen and inflamed and the biopsy said there was malignancy and so we thought and our visits were very moving. After the last visit on Thursday evening (as she is in the critical care part of the hospital where all are in private rooms we could only visit one at a time and only from 11:00 to 12:00 and then 5:00 to 6:00.) the doctor arrived and told the provincial that the tumor had disappeared; even the doctor thought it was a miracle. There is no cancer, no tumor, and Ines seems to be doing as well as can be expected after serious surgery. We are all so relieved. Then Marge and I left for the airport at 4:45 A.M. on Friday as Colombia insists on passengers arriving three hours before an international flight. We came home so grateful for the opportunity not only to be with Ines but we were overwhelmed by the welcome and love of all the Colombian Province.
