Good News from the Doctor

Doctor Craig said, "Spoke with a radiologist about Michael's scans at the end of last week. After reviewing them again, he seemed even more convinced they were related to respiratory/breathing issues and DID NOT indicate possible new nodules or recurrent lung disease. While I was not particularly worried, it was beneficial to speak with him directly. We will continue to get the scans in 4 months time."  Michael has gone from having 4 Nodules to 1 Nodule.

We are ask prayer for our nephew William.  He has just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  He will be turning three very soon.  This is a new learning curve for his parents and William.  To see him you would think nothing is wrong with him, but they have to be very careful with everything he eats.  He now gets insulin injections and has to check his blood sugar many times a day.  What a big change for this family.

Another milestone passed

Michaels MRI and CT a scans were done last week as well as a blood test. We are pleased that the Blood test had a low AFP reading and after Cathy met with the doctor we are able to say his scans were good also. There aparently 3 spots still on his lungs, down from 4th in the last scans which are the calcified remains of dead cancer sites.
Michaels will get blood test in January and then fill scans early april.
If we can stay cancer free past April his long term survival chances to say up.
God Bless....

Michael's scans came back pretty good.   His MRI showed no evidence of the cancer coming back.  The CT was Showing one known nodule and that two others were possible.  He had 4 before so we are waiting for the doctor to confirm that we don't need a new scan.  They were not able to see very clearly part of the upper lungs.  The CT did say no evidence of cancer progression.  Just to be safe we have to have his AFP (cancer cell number) taken again in January.  We go back for MRI and CT in 4 months.  If it is clear they may move that out to a 6 months.  Michael is almost a year out from Chemo treatments.  PRAISE GOD!  Thank you to all you who have been praying for him.

Michael has a bit of a cold now but is running around like a crazy man.  It is so good to see him playing like the other children now.  Good luck Adrian on your scans in December.
