Ice, ice everywhere...

Well it's 7:30 and I'll let Cody sleep for another hour or two. Then we will head in for his scans. Pray for shrinkage! I never thought I say that... :D LOL....

Tomorrow is going to be a special day also... Yes it is Valentines Day, but it's more than that. We are going to take Cody in to his class so he can exchange valentines with all of them. He has not seen his teachers and the other students since November when he got sick again. You know we will be filming and taking pictures of that. I put out a couple of feelers to the Washington Post and Channel 4 news and told them Cody's story. I did it in hopes of raising awareness about Neuroblastoma. Since joining the Band Of Parents I've been feeling the need to become more proactive in the fight against this disease. I don't want to wait until something bad happens. Cody will be the perfect person to help do this... I have not heard back from either of them yet I hope today one of them will give me a call.

I will post later today to let everyone know the outcome of the scans... Keep praying please....

Well we just got back and we have mixed results. On the good side the tumor did shrink. On the other side, there appears to be a new lesion right below the tumor. It's rather small but that is how they start. The doctor is sending his blood sample out for tests of fungus. We hope and pray that is what it is. This roller coaster ride never seems to end. I don't know what to say right now.

I did laugh out loud at your shrinkage comment and am so excited that Cody will make it into class. I'm disaappointed that Tate won't be there - my father is having a brain tumor biopsy and we are headed up to be with his wife - we too pray for shrinkage.

Oh how fun that Cody gets to go to his Valentine's Day party! I see a big sugar buzz in his future. Some good publicity for awareness would be great and I can't think of a better face for Neuroblastoma. That sounds strange- I mean it in a good way.

Good luck with the scans- prayers being lifted for good news real soon.

I've been away for a couple days on my own hospital run. Praying for Cody and hoping it a fungus or anything else.

Hey Guys,
Wanted to check in and see how Cody's doing? I laughed at the "Shrinkage" comment. We have continued to keep him in our prayers several times a day! I will add an extra one that the additional spot is just fungus. Thinking of you all.
Love Rob and Sherry Will (Ashlyne's parents)

Hey DeckApe,

A warm hello from Korea...been away lately so just getting caught up on the blog. Love the pics of your family and Cody with his missing tooth (look's like a hockey player now! ;-)). Glad to here the tumor has shrunk and hope the other thing turns out to be nothing! I'll keep praying!

You don't need to say anything, Deck. Just hold on tight. Just pray. You're doing everything right.

GB is right you are doing everything correct. Just hang in there. We are praying that it will just be a fungus. And hoping Cody has a great time today.

It will be good for Cody to go to school and see his teacher and classmates. We'll all be praying for a good report from the doctor and shrinage.

Prayers continue for Cody and family too.
