All of us finally got a good nights rest after having a LONG day from yesterday!! We had to give Reagan Tylenol for pain from her bone marrow biopsy, but other than that she had no complications from anesthesia or anything else.
This afternoon Blake did receive a call from our pediatrician-Dr. Jay Murphy. He called to say that he received the results from the MRI. He first said I'm sure you haven't heard anything, but I wanted to try to ease your mind over the weekend. Based on the MRI the cancer is just isolated in the right adrenal kidney; it hasn't spread to any other area in her chest cavity. What a blessing it was to hear that news!! Our pediatrician was just too sweet and felt we would like to at least know something. Our Heavenly Father definitely answered our prayers.
While I was typing up this journal, Blake received a call from Dr. Granger. He called me downstairs to go over with me what she had said. It was really nice of her to take time out from her evening and call us the results since it was at 9:50 when she called. She said that after looking at the MRI and the MIBG she was very happy with the results. The tumor is just in her right adrenal gland and has not spread anywhere else in her body. She didn't have the bone marrow results back, but she said that if it was not anywhere else in her body the likely hood of it being in her bone marrow is slim to none. She said that the tumor was the same size and volume as it was on the sonogram. Based on these results she believes that Reagan can go through the clinical study of "watch and wait", but if we feel we just want to remove it we can do that. She said we will go over these results again on Tuesday along with the bone marrow and discuss our action plan of whether to do surgery or the clinical trial. We also are getting a second opinion from another hospital to see if both hospital's plans match up. Blake and I now have a tough decision as to whether we want to do the clinical trial or do the surgery. We are going to pray about it and look to the Lord for our answer.
Today obviously was a GREAT day and we know that there are going to be many more to come. Everyone has definitely brought us the Lord's light during our darkest times. Our GOD is an awesome GOD!!
