Pictures of a miracle

Okay, I'm just going to tell you.  This is kind of graphic so don't look if you're squeamish.  But to me I feel like I am looking at pictures of the God's hand at work so I decided to share.  So I will start but putting  a pretty picture.  If you want to see the ugly pictures then scroll down.

I see God's hand here too.  Is there anything more beautiful than the Oregon Coast?

Okay,  Here come the pictures that are a bit graphic.  Please don't scroll down if you don't want to see them.  That's okay.  It won't hurt my feelings.

Picture taken in the back right side of my mouth May 10, 2014.  

Picture taken of the same area June 11, 2014

Picture taken of the same area July 11, 2014

Picture taken with an iPhone July 20th, 2014 in Boston when all heck broke loose

Picture taken yesterday (8.22.2014) of the same area, much closer up because my mouth can suddenly open again.  This is .after 21 days of chemo.

What I didn't take was a picture of the smile on my face and the tears of joy that came when I looked at this picture.  I will leave that to your imagination.


  1. WOW!!! That improvement is amazing!!!! I'm so happy for you!

    1. We are happy too. I just hope and pray that this is what is happening with the other cancer sites as well.

  2. Totally a miracle!! Dr. V. those photos would be excellent for a text book! I'm so sorry they are from my favorite Dentist's mouth. Hang in there! Everything WILL be okay! Love to you and Jolynn from P and R

  6. Eric. I know that a year and a half ago you were told only three more weeks. I think you can keep beating this cancer. Keep up the fight. You are an inspiration to us all. Dan
