Joseph has done really well so far. We did the "magic cream" before they accessed his port and I think that really helped with the pain. He just sat in my lap and we had a nurse at the ready to hold his legs, but I don't think she really had to hold him much. He had his PET scan then MRI and was finally able to eat at 3:30 in the afternoon. He had woken up at 4:30 that morning ready to start the day, so it was a long day to not eat or drink. What a trooper!
Today is the tumor board meeting, where they will discuss Joe's scans and all the different doctors (radiologists, surgeons, oncologists) will give their opinion on what this new mass looks like. Unfortunately, since they discuss many different cases, we won't be able to meet with our doctors until tomorrow morning at 9:30. Please continue to pray for clarity and wisdom for the doctors and that we would have peace no matter what the final consensus is.
We are off today so plan to go to Target (the big excitement for Joe P.) and swimming with Winnie Kate and Aunt Jennifer. Thank you all for holding us up in prayer. Joseph is really so happy and actually likes going in to St. Judes now, which I never would have believed possible. He is excited to see the doctors and play with the toys in the waiting room. We will keep you updated as we find out the results.
