We’re back from a great few weeks at summer camp. It was great having the whole family together while we served with over 150 volunteers and 1000 campers! We rolled into town last night and are downtown today for a follow-up MRI.
This is six weeks past her last one and will hopefully tell us that the tumor is shrinking and the spinal lesion isn’t progressing. This chemo is pretty slow acting so we don’t expect to see much. Frankly, we’d be excited to have the results show no movement in either direction. It would be great to hear that the tumor had stopped growing. We may not get results until Monday and we’ll update then.
In other news, we got her brace for scoliosis this past week. She hates it but we are doing our best. She should wear it at least 18 hours a day. We’re not anywhere close to that yet but hopefully we’ll build up to it quickly. They told us the brace should help keep her spine from getting worse but probably won’t do much in the way of correction.
In the coming weeks we have weekly chemo treatments and a few more appointments with various specialists. Then we head to St.Louis a little less than a month from now to meet with the NF1 team there. We’re really looking forward to meeting those doctors and beginning a relationship with their clinic.
As always we appreciate your prayers for our sweet girl!
