Not the scans we were looking for

As Musical Daddy mentioned, the scans were not clear. Here's what is going on:

An ultrasound last Friday showed a spot on his liver. A "lesion." The scans were moved to now instead of after he recovered from chemo, as he is still on a brief Neupogen high right now.

Scans took place this morning, and the doctor saw them before radiology did a complete review. While radiology gives the final word on everything that they can see without actually performing a biopsy or surgically removing whatever it is, the doctor said that it is possibly more tumor.

Other possibilities are a walled infection or scar tissue that wasn't noticed before.

After the final word comes from radiology, The Boy's case is being presented at the Tumor Board tomorrow. This was supposed to happen anyway, but now they present him with new information.

Either way, we're probably looking at surgery in a few weeks.

I've been trying to keep myself occupied. My mom and I took the boys to get pictures taken. They were absolutely adorable. Meatball is such a camera hog. The Boy took awhile to warm up, but thanks to Grandma throwing a stuffed crayon around, we got some great shots of both kids.

I'll continue to update from here.

I want Musical Daddy to be with me. This is really hard without him. He's planning to come next week, bother everything else.

I responded to a Facebook post, something about what would you rather hear--"I love you" or "I got this." My response, true more now than ever, was "In our family, they mean the same thing."

I'm crying my eyes out for this little boy I don't even know. I pray for the best for David.

Like I said on webMD. NOT FAIR!

Praying for you all and enlisting help for this. I am so sorry that we live so far away. I would be there in an instant to help you. Is there anything I can do from afar?

I am so sorry to hear this! I will keep mentioning David's name at the Mi Shebeirach when I go to services. And I'm keeping your whole family in my thoughts and prayers every day.

I am from WebMD. I am on the 4/5 year old board, but I often lurk on all the parenting boards. I have followed your story from Day 1. I just want you to know that I have always thought you are so strong and have dealt with this so gracefully. I often think of your family and I am praying for you as well. I am praying for your little guy.

I have been thinking of you guys all day and hoping that this turns out to be just an infection. Hugs, hugs, hugs. I wish I could hug you in person. I have told my mom your story and can't even talk about it without my voice cracking. Nobody deserves this--not good people like you guys. ((((Mol and family)))
