So waiting pretty much stinks…until you get great news!! We are so thrilled that Dr Eshun called us with the news that all of Jack’s scans came back totally normal and it was an even better sign that the remaining part of his main tumor has continued to shrink to almost nothing!! Perfect!!
Jack went back to school today and since he is the star student of the week, he brought his poster as well as his Beads of Courage to share with the class. I didn’t really think that he would say too much to the class because he gets rather shy in front of people, but the teacher told me when I picked him up that he loved sharing his beads and he was telling everyone what they all stood for. We still hadn’t heard anything by the time I got him from school and I can say that I felt like I was going insane. Scan result days are really not fun. You never know what you are going to hear. We knew that Jack would be fine…we really believed that, but you always have that little voice in the back of your head that says, “What if…” What if there is something new. What if there is a questionable spot. What if we have to check in on Monday to start treatment again. You cannot help but think these things. We try to block them out as best as we can but they will always be there.
Now that we know all is well, we can move on. We don’t have to go back to see Dr Eshun for another 3 months. We have decided to continue to do the urine tests every month even though we don’t have to, but it can give somewhat of piece of mind.
Anyway…all is good here. We are having Jack’s favorite, salmon, tonight and have made a chocolate cake decorated with green icing upon his request. I know there is more that has gone on today but my mind is totally mush right now.
Love to all…thank you for all of your support!!!
