We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Joseph's friend, we'll call him Yogi, and our friends from Atlanta came up and we had lots of playing and fun. Joseph was so sad they had to go back.
We leave tomorrow for Memphis for the three month MRI. We have three days of scheduled tests and meetings, and Joe will have his port accessed tomorrow night. This will be the first time they've left the needle in overnight since radiation, so we are not anticipating a good night's sleep. He always freaks out with any blood draw or IV, so please pray for him to be strong and calm. The MRI will be first thing Thursday so we'll know the official results by the end of the day.
We are emotional and apprehensive about this MRI. He isn't showing any signs or symptoms of regrowth, but there could still be some growth. I guess this is how every MRI is going to be for a while. Please continue to pray for him and for us.
Also, if you've been following the other three year old boy with GBM in the links section, he is not doing well and is not expected to live much longer. Please pray for him and for the family.
