TO HELP OUR FAMILY, JOIN HAZEL'S CARE COMMUNITY BY GOING TO Here to Serve AND FILL OUT THE REGISTRATION FORM
We got the email just this morning, from the doctor, with our little Hazelnut's scan results! Here is what it said:
"The mass appears smaller! Now measures 1.5 x 0.6 cm
as compared to 2.1 x 1.0 cm. We will review it in our NBL
meeting [a weekly meeting with CHLA's Neuroblastoma
medical professionals] tomorrow morning"
As you may remember though, Hazel does not only have one mass, but three different masses. So while I was elated at this news, I was curious as to why she did not have information on the other two. I wrote back to her with my inquiry and she responded swiftly with:
"Nada. No uptake to the other two areas!"
You guys...Do you know what this means?!! This means that the scan could not even detect the other two masses, likely meaning they have been obliterated!! And the other one is not far behind! What sweet music this was to my ears and my soul this morning! God has blessed our doctors and our family with the hope of a recovery, and you have no idea how unbelievably good it feels!!!
We meet with Hazel's team on Monday to discuss plans moving forward. From what we have continued to discuss, we will likely keep on this regimen until we get completely clear scans, possibly more than once, and then move on to something less harsh. But we won't know until Monday, what the exact plan will be. For now, she is scheduled to begin her next round after her appointment on Monday, so please pray we get the rest of the week together and that she gets to have these days feeling well and feeling strong!! Thank you all for your prayers!!
