MRI Results

I know I said I was taking a break -- and I am -- but I also thought some of you may be wondering about Chad's MRI from last week....

Chad brought home a copy of the MRI results right after his appointment last week. We were eager to see them, and were not too floored by what we saw. No growth, no shrinkage. No change. Still. He's still stable!

We met Tuesday with his oncologist. The radiologist hasn't sent the images over yet, so we didn't get to talk about the results.
That same evening, I received his labs & MRI results via fax. There were a few terms I had to look up in medical journals, a few new tidbits of information.

There is no new growth, as we suspected. But there are a few questionable areas. His oncologist isn't sure what it means since Chad hasn't done anything by the books. It may be nothing, but it's possible that he will be having another biopsy in the coming weeks.

On Feb 24, we will be traveling to Baptist Hospital in Wake Forest to talk with a specialist we've previously talked to. He has been the most honest with us so far, and we are eager to hear his take on the new MRI results.

Once we get that info and decide what to do next, I'll be sure to let you know.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
