Seriously, here comes the next wave. We received a call last night from Susan, Dr. Crawford's Assistant and I believe the first words out of my mouth was, "Susan when your name popped up on the phone, I just threw up in my mouth. Can't we get 24 hours of pure happiness." With that being said, she didn't like that seeing her name made us feel that way, but immediately I thought, "It can't be that bad, Dr. Crawford would call us personally if it was."
Enough jabbering, they called to let us know that the radiology report (this is why we wait for the report before we get to excited. Someone remind us next time in case we forget.) did see the cancer regressing in the liver and the bones. (I do think I failed to mention that when we did chemo we did an intravenous drug to help stimulate bone growth and help in the healing and fighting cancer there as well) But there are two spots they believe the be blood clots that they would like to ultrasound. There is a chance these will turn out to be nothing, but on the flip side if they are, then we need to take care of asap. One is in his lung and the more concerning one is in his interior jugular. Scary, we know where the jugular leads and this is the one they want to ultrasound immediately. That location isn't common, and probably not good. All this stems down to another trip to Duke tomorrow for the ultrasound and then determining our treatment plan if it turns out to be something we need to take care of immediately. They are unsure what might of caused these, but again our doctors are great and Dr. Crawford, Susan and Dr. Palmer are working together for the best course of treatment and getting us in as quickly as possible.
Thank for all the support and never a dull moment with Bo.
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi
