Well, our hospital visit could not have gotten much worse today. The results of Cody's CT scan was much worse than we thought possible. His little lungs are 50% covered with cancer. He is also showing spots in his liver. To use the word devastated would be a major understatement. The doctor couldn't tell us how much time we had but with the progression of the beast from the scan 3 weeks ago to today she thinks it could be 2 weeks to 2 months. He will start getting short of breath as this progresses. She said that they can keep him comfortable and he will have to go on oxygen when the time comes. There is basically no way we can treat him now other than to do a little more radiation on his legs to relieve the pain. She is going to ask the radiation Dr. if there is any way to treat his lungs but she doesn't believe there is.
So, we are now planning on leaving for the beach this coming Monday. We are going to go as far south as the train will take us. We will deal with the plans in the next few days. Cody was suppose to get radiation on his legs through next week but the doctor says that we need to go to the beach now. Cyber Knife is no longer a concern. We are no longer pursuing that treatment. We are now in memory making overdrive mode.
We have decided that we are not going to tell the kids until we absolutely have to. We don't need anymore people worrying than we already have. As far as Cody goes, we are just going to keep him as happy and comfortable as possible. I wish there was better news to report but there unfortunately is not.
Thank you all for the prayers.....
