MRI results

Finally got the MRI results today, and they are promising. The doctor couldn't say for sure, but the nodule may be smaller, perhaps as small as 5mm by 5mm (the last MRI showed it around 10mm by 5mm). Again, there is no way to tell whether it is tumor or scar tissue, but the doctor mentioned that it didn't appear to take up any of the contrast - so if it is tumor, it's at least not active. So, the worst we can take away from these results is "no change", which isn't bad news at all.

I don't think we realized just how much we've been holding our breath over the past couple weeks while waiting for these results. The relief is now beginning to wash over us, and it feels good. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement.

In other news, we just got a new appointment to get Kol's neuropsych screening results next Monday (July 11), so we're looking forward to that - and there's much less suspense and anxiety connected with those results!
