A good day

Well Cody's CT scan came back negative today. He had a head, neck and chest scan and it turned up no visible signs of cancer. The doctor believes that the bump on his collar bone is bone or calcium. He will have the full gamut of tests next week also.

Cody has showed a little sign that his appetite is going to come back now. Towards the end of the day he started to eat a little more. He weighted 42 pounds before his surgery and now weights 38 pounds. We need him to have a good weekend because he will be getting chemo next week so that won't help for sure.

For those of you who live in the Washington D.C. area there is going to be a concert in Centreville, VA on April 25th. The concert is titled "Rock For A Cure." It features a band named the "Fabulous Hubcaps". Here is the link to purchase tickets. This is a great way to help this great cause and have a great evening out to boot. Go to their site and you can listen to a sampling of their music.

God Bless you all!!!!

Whew, Big sigh of relief. Good luck with the appetite, and it is Cody's fault that I killed a pint of ice cream yesterday :D..
