MRI Results

Lisa's latest scans confirm that there is new disease [Neuroblastoma] evident in the spine as well as soft tissue growth around the spine.  Additionally there is new soft tissue growth in the neck area.

So the plan is this: (1) Lisa will start chemo tonight and continue again on Thursday and Friday. (2) She will begin radiation therapy Thursday to target the aggressive growth around the spine. (3) We'll have to begin pain management regimen and palliative care.

She certainly won't be discharged until the fever subsides for more than 24 hours.  She spiked to 103.1 coming out of the MRI, which will keep her her at least until tomorrow evening but I seriously doubt we'll get out before the weekend.

So there's where we are at.  Please continue to send Lisa your best. We'll update the blog as we get more to post.

Heavenly Father we lift up Lisa in prayer this moment. Please lay your healing hand on her as we know you are the ultimate physician. Give her the strength she needs each day. We know you are a God of miracles and we pray for one right now and we will give you all the praise and glory. In Christ name we pray, Amen.

Lisa and the rest of your family have been in my thoughts. I'm sending you all my best, and hope that Lisa is comfortable and her pain is managed as she goes through the next few days.
