I finally heard from PCH today and Jack’s VMA/HVA results are totally normal. This urine test is a very important test because it can detect Neuroblstoma in the body and since his are normal, we can take a deep breath for a few months until his next set of scans in November. It feels so much better!
I can say that today has been a great day. The fact that the Stand Up 2 Cancer photo contest is ending today has caused a bit of nervousness but that is only because we think this would be such an amazing opportunity. I cannot even imagine the feeling of standing in a room with thousands who are all there for the same reason…to stand up to cancer until there is no more. Can you imagine?! What a wonderful experience that would be!!
I am also very humbled by the response of my friends who have voted for Jacks’ picture and the wonderful things they have said about him. It amazes me every day how many people Jack has touched and how inspirational he can be.
It has been a bit since I started writing and I just got a call from Dr Eshun confirming the results we were told earlier. He went over everything and thinks Jack is doing really well. He also finally admitted that I am a tad neurotic. It was pretty funny to hear but he is so right! I am so thankful that we were given Dr Eshun as Jack’s doctor. Not only do I think that there isn’t another oncologist that would have been able to deal with me, but I really believe that he is the best oncologist out there. He never looked at Jack as a statistic. He look at Jack as a son, a grandson, a nephew, a friend, a cousin…he looked at Jack as an individiual that he wanted to help make better…and that is what he did. We will be forever greateful to Dr Eshun.
So tonight is the last night for voting on the SU2C Facebook page….if you are on Facebook, vote NOW!
