Xrays

I don't think that I have mentioned it before because I was hoping it would resolve itself. Cody has been limping for quite some time. He hurt his leg when we were in NY for Thanksgiving. He still has a very noticeable limp which doesn't seem to be getting better.

Diane has taken him in today for blood work and she hasn't mentioned if the results are back yet. She did tell me that they did an X-ray of his leg and they are concerned with what they are seeing in his knee area. She said that Dr. Abu-Gosh is on here way down to look at the slides. We may have a bone scan coming up soon. This raises flags for us because limping is a major sign of neuroblastoma. That would be a sign that it is in his bones. That would also be devastating. It would be a sign that it has returned and advanced dramatically. I pray that I am overreacting.

Devastated!
I just got off the phone with Diane. Cody has a lesion on leg. He will be getting an bone scan tomorrow morning. This is just insane... How can this happen while he is getting 3f8? This disease is pure evil...

I asked Diane if she posed the question to the Dr. if this could be a result of the fall while he was in NY. The Dr. told Diane that she believes the beast has returned. He will get the scan tomorrow and he will have an MIBG next week to determine how much it has progressed. I pray they are wrong but I just don't feel good about this. I can't or should I say I don't want to put my thoughts into words right now... I will post tomorrow when I get more info...

Pray for our boy please....

Mickey and Diane,

We continue to keep Cody close in thought and prayer, as we do your entire family. I pray that this is not a returning case of neuroblastoma. We will keep praying. If you need anything-please don't hesitate.

Mickey, it just can't be! He and you and Diane have been fighting so hard. It just wouldn't be fair. Not that you didn't already know all this.

Praying for Cody and the rest of the family. Praying that good news will come you way.
