Just a little update to let you know that Jack did really well yesterday with his scans. We got to the hospital and he was in great spirits. We were able to deliver some of our “Stronger Than Cancer” shirts to some of the PCH employees since we had a little bit of time on our hands. Walking back in to radiology used to feel like you were walking into the hallways of doom because it’s simply terrifying but now, even though we are still nervous about it all, we walk back there and we are greeted by our second family. The nuclear med team, the CT team, nurse Angela, and of course Dr Maze are all there waiting for us and with open arms. They care so much about Jack and our family and knowing that they will take such amazing care of him while he is under, makes a huge difference.
Jack fell asleep well, with a smile on his face but with a very strong grip on to Zac’s shirt. We gave him kisses and ran up to the oncology floor to deliver some more shirts while he was asleep. The scans didn’t take any longer than needed and we were back in recovery in about 1 1/2 hours. Jack was sound asleep and after about 20 minutes, he woke up well, ate his popsicle, and we headed home….with a small stop at Toys R Us of course! Once we were home he had another snack and out he went to play in the backyard….all was back to normal again!
Now we sit and wait for Dr Eshun to call. We know we won’t know full details until Tuesday but I am really hoping that we get some preliminary results today at some point. My birthday is on Saturday and the only thing I want is for Jack’s scans to be clear and for him to be cancer free forever.
