MRI update


Sorry for the non-post yesterday– we didn’t know anything, but could have told you that!

We just spoke with our oncologist. Praise God: Eliza’s MRI showed nothing unusual, and the tumor is smaller, as expected. The oncologists would still like to move the surgery date up if possible, just because getting the tumor out sooner is better than later. But the head surgeon was out today, so we won’t have an answer on that until Monday.

To be clear, the surgery wasn’t delayed; it was just scheduled for later than we had thought it would be. It’s well within the recommended timeframe for treatment, so just a matter of getting surgeons’ schedules worked out.

We were more fearful this morning than usual, just because of that higher count from the blood work. And we’d like the surgery as soon as possible, because we want that stupid tumor out of our little girl’s body. But if they had seen something concerning today, they would have changed the plan. No obvious reason to change the plan is good news.

Please pray that the surgeons and oncologists will all agree on whatever’s best timing-wise, and pray for our hearts as we wait. For now, please pray that we don’t have any surprises between now and Wednesday– Foard’s birthday. He’s really been feeling the middle-kid, sick-sister, brand-new-school, still-3 squeeze lately, and we want to celebrate him with lots of good attention.

Seriously, wouldn't you love to give this face some good attention?
