Hard to believe it is already that time again but we got the call yesterday to schedule our next set of scans. We had 6 weeks of excitement over clear scans and now we get 6 weeks of building anxiety for the next set of scans. Jack will go in on February 14th for a CT scan which he is awake for so no anesthesia that day! He will then get an injection for his MIBG scan the next day. The 15th we go in and he goes under anesthesia to get his MIBG scan…the scan that makes any Neuroblastoma activity light up, so obviously we want nothing to light up! The only good thing about going under anesthesia is that we get to see Dr Maze! Since Jack doesn’t have to get the bone scan this time, it will be two very short days of scans. Hopefully we will hear from Dr Eshun again that evening so we can start celebrating the next set of clear scans! This will be Jack’s 9 month follow up scans…how time flies.
Jack has also stopped taking his Levothyroxine for his thyroid so he will get labs drawn when he is under to check those levels. If they come back normal, he will be able to stay off the Levothyroxine and then be checked again at next set of scans to make sure it’s still normal. That would be so wonderful if he was off all meds!!!
As always, Jack’s scans fall during a busy week…Braden turns 2 just a few days before and Zac and I will also be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. I can’t believe so much has gone on since we were married…and even more so, I can’t believe my baby is turning 2!
So please start praying now and sending your positive thoughts this way!! Clear scans…NED…clear scans…NED!!!! No need for thyroid medication too please!!
