Heading back

After another impromptu meeting with the oncologist on Friday, they told us that they want Joe to come back for a few more tests on Tuesday. These tests in a best-case senario would show that it is pseudoprogression, but they are just as likely to come back inconclusive. Hopefully this will give them enough information to make a better diagnosis. We will meet with our doctors again sometime after the tumor board meeting on Wednesday.

So we'll be going back to Memphis on Monday but we don't know how long they want us to stay. Thanks for all your prayers and messages.
