It never fails...

Just when it seems like we can take a breath we get a slap of reality again. Diane took Cody in yesterday to the clinic and do a chest CT to complete all the scans needed for MSK in New York. Well they noticed a new spot on his lung. We are hoping it is a lung infection but there is a possibility that it is a fungus, or worse. They took cultures yesterday and should know today or tomorrow if it is a fungus. If it is, there is a problem of whether Cody's liver is strong enough for the meds that are needed to fight the fungus. If it is worse, well, I don't even want to go there.

Cody had a very bad day yesterday. Diane told me he had major meltdowns all day. He also had one when it was time to go to bed. Diane and I both are at whits end with these outbursts.

He is still on for his surgery tomorrow. We hope to get some good news by then also. I will keep you all posted....

Be an angel, help find a company that can help Corporate Angel get flights out of the Washington DC area to the New York area. They only offer empty seats to cancer patients and their parents.

Well ****, Prayers for good results from the culture as well as for his emotional state. I hope he feels better with the port.

Mickey,

Have you called Vicki with Corporate Angels? She was our contact person and her number is 866.328.1313. She might be able to assist in other planes that are leave out the DC area. I hope this helps brother and let us know if you need anything. Hug Cody for us and tell the family we said hello.

That sucks! I wish I had something better to say. Though I just had a thought... I'll let you know if I get any information. Praying for good news and calming of his temper for Cody.

Gosh Mickey, I'm sorry to hear this latest news. Prayers continue to be said for Cody and good test results - and prayers said for all of you, actually.

Mickey, Sorry to hear about the spot. I will pray that it turns out to be nothing. Good luck with the surgery tomorrow.
My continued prayers of strength for both Cody and the family. Just remember that Goe will never give you more then you can handle. Rely on his strength to get you through!
