We are back from our appointment. I wish I could tell you with great clarity the results of the scans, but I can't. Our oncologist was very laid back and somewhat vague as to the results. The scans do show "something" but nothing that wasn't expected. There are very small lesions that show up in the chest and the spine, but they are not new spots. It is likely that they are residual tumor, or they could be scar tissue from the surgery. During the appointment, the doctor basically just showed us some scans and tried to show us where the area of involvement is. MRI and CT scans are not a perfect science. They can't tell you what you are looking at. The urine results won't be in until Wednesday, so we weren't able to see if those have stabilized either. So the plan is to come in in 3 weeks, repeat a urine test. Then we rescan in August. Last week's scans will be our baseline to compare all future scans against. By using that data and the urine levels, we will be able to know if new tumor is growing. For now, we just wait and watch.
His Broviac surgery is scheduled for June 5th, the earliest appointment we could get. That is a big let down to have to wait 2 1/2 weeks, but we have no choice.
That's the news of the day. Brady did a great job and for the first time was able to get his height and weight done standing up like a big boy!!! Momma was so proud:)
