Ok, here we go…

Dr Eshun called tonight and told us some good news.  Jack’s bone marrow is coming up negative for Neuroblastoma so far. Also, the sight that showed up positive before (where his main tumor sight was) is totally gone.  There is nothing left…this is great.  So here is the “grey area”…they have 2 questionable spots that we are going to have rescanned. One is on his skull and the other is on his right orbital bone.  This is very confusing because it could be nothing, it could be something. It could have been there before, it could be new.  Dr. Eshun was in a class all day today and by the time he got out, the main radiologist was gone and he was not able to go through the scans with him.  Eshun is very good at what he does and he is very thorough with everything.  He will go through this with a fine tooth comb and figure it all out.  He said that either way, cancer or not, he is not changing his outlook on Jack.  Jack has come a long way and done so well that he is not changing anything.

What does this all mean?  Well, we go in at 7:30 AM tomorrow for a PET scan and then we go in next week for a bone scan and a MRI of his skull.  Dr. Eshun will review everything and also send out for a 2nd opinion from Dr. Kushner at Sloane Kettering since he is who we went to for a 2nd opinion in the beginning.  If it it cancer, they will not call it a relapse because his marrow is clean and so it is main tumor sight.  Like I said before, this could be nothing…so PLEASE, PLEASE pray for Jack extra hard tonight.  He has come such a long way and he is such a fighter.  Even if it is cancer, he will still kick the crap out of it.  We are staying positive, so you have to as well.
