On 3rd January my father was diagnosed with tonsillar cancer and it is a 50/50 chance one, after months of being tube fed through stomach and in pain from chemo and rad he finally has been given the news today that it was a success. The power of prayer and positive attitude eh! Who else has had good news today? Please share. Ellie :D

I suffered for years with tonsillitus after 3 years of antibiotics as a main course in my life and the damage done by these antibiotics they removed my tonsills. My good newsis that today I supose that I dont have to worry about tonsillitus? I am also living in a place where fresh fruits and vegies are plentiful and the air is clean from the Ocean. Thanks for helping with the positive reflection.

Hi David yes tonsillitus can be very painful and at least yours were removed, tonsillar cancer is more in the throat not the tonsils as such but it is a great relief to know that he will be fine now. Ellie :D

Your news are the best that i had this day. I am glad your father is better now, it seems he really wanted to get cured - that helped a lot. Prayers also helped - he is lucky to have a daughter so lovely and loving like you. My good news for today is that my girlfriend past her exam she had today... i know it's far from the good news that you have, but still counts as a good news. Take care ellie !

Congrats to your father and to you and the rest of the family. I know first hand what a long, stressful ordeal caner is for everyone in the family as my brother-in-law had throat cancer five years ago. Like your father he had chemo and radiation for several months and was very sick for a time. He's been cancer free ever since but I agree with you about the power of prayer and positive thinking. I'm happy that you have such good news to share.

I am very happy for you and your father. That is such great news! I know how hard cancer can be on a family, I have lost 2 aunts and 1 uncle to cancer, it is a very hard disease to deal with, emotionally and physically. I am glad your fathers turned out so positive. I wish you both the best.

Oh Jill thanks I will forward on to him, what a relief eh as he has been very ill for the last six months plus and had lost so much weight etc but this will really perk him up knowing that he just has to learn to eat and put some weight on again now. Ellie :D

oh Ellie I am so happy for you and your dad, thats great news. Prayer and positive attitudes do work. I have some fairly good news. I went to my doctor again with my shingles and he has put me on seven days of Valtrex which he feels will 'probably clear the nasty ones left up and so stop the pain.' and if that doesnt work, he will try a different med but he wants me to go ahead with the valtrex as he thinks this time it will work. I sure hope so. lol.
