Well we are here....

We checked into Georgetown yesterday afternoon. A day early because of the bad night he had the night before. He's not eating and drinking very little. I think his liver is putting pressure on his stomach and it doesn't feel good when he eats. He did sleep pretty good last night. I have forgotten how hard it is to sleep in this hospital.. :(

He has a very busy morning planned today. At 8am he is having a liver biopsy then they are going to do his bone marrow test. Hopefully from there they are going to put his PIC line in. This is the tube that goes into his chest and is used to administer all the chemo and meds. It sounds bad but it really makes things easier on him in the long run. He would need to have needles sticking him every time without it. They are also planning to do his nuclear bone scan today also. This will show how far the cancer has progressed. That is, if it is cancer. Please continue to pray for Cody...

I'll write more later..


4:20pm

I'm now waiting in his room. He is having the Central Line put in his chest. It's been a long day for him. He has been such a trooper. Despite the fact that he hasn't eaten much of anything for a couple of days he has done pretty well.
This morning he had his liver biopsy, bone marrow taken and also a Nuclear Bone scan done. He did so great. We already received news that the bone scan test is negative. That is a good thing.. While typing this I just received a call from the doctor putting in his Central Line. He said everything went well and he was able to use the same scared area that his line was in before. That is another bit of good news. Right now we will take anything we can get. :D I really don't feel very good about the liver biopsy coming back negative. He doctor, Dr. Shad has already spoken to the folks at Sloan-Kettering. The have a plan and will start treatment tomorrow. This is good because the more time that goes bye the more the cancer has a chance to spread.

Thanks to all our friends and family for you support and prayers. They mean the world to us...
