A deeeeeeeep exhale

I don't have time to go into the details right now. There is much expert consultation going on in the world of neuroblastoma, but, my original take (not my paranoid one) on the MIBG was correct. She was negative. The spots of concern that I identified were attributable to brown fat and normal uptake. We still have to figure out what the new lesion is on CT but right now the belief is that we are dealing with an unknown.

As of right now there are no plans but to enjoy Christmas.

We still have no answer but this is the best news we could have walked out with today.

More to come after I can stop crying tears of joy.

Thank you for the prayers. Thank you for my purpose.

I am glad. I've been afraid to check, but then acknowledged how you have to find out, so decided not to be such a coward.

I'm hoping this is something that is not a big problem. It's already enough of a problem that there is so much angst because there is so much at stake with these tests. And to think Sydney is one of the lucky ones!
