We just got a call from the Cancer Clinic this morning. The Radiation Oncologist would like another CT scan - the last one still showed post-op swelling and the hydrocephalus or excess fluid in Kol's brain. The scan is scheduled for tomorrow at 3:00 - it will be his fourth one. It is amazing and scary to us how quickly Kol has gotten in for CT scans, and MRIs. Of course we are impatient, and want things to move quickly, but it really seems urgent when even 'jaded medical staff' bypass the normal channels for him. I think that is what shocked me most when Kirk told me about the mass in the first place - it was certainly a shock that Kol had a tumor, but it was really shocking that they were sending him for an MRI immediately. In contrast, Birgitte's neurologist wants her to have an MRI, but said that because there is such a long waiting list, that would probably be in about 4 months.
As always, we thank you for your prayer support through all of this, and we ask for continued prayers for this CT scan. It would be wonderful if the doctors couldn't find the tumor on tomorrow's scan. Whatever happens, we know that Kol is in God's hands, and He is capable of all. God has already worked a miracle in our lives by creating such a wonderful support group around us, and for all the prayers and answered prayers in the last 20 days. To God Be The Glory for what He is doing.
