Test is done, our wonderful oncologists pushed through and snatched the slide right away to look at for themselves, and ran into our room to tell us that it does NOT look like a replase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We will have the final result in the next few days, but the preliminary gives us a pretty good idea, so we are so relieved. I will post when we know the final results, keep praying they are the same! In the meantime the oncologists decided we can move on with figuring out what is causing her pain. They are working on scheduling an MRI on her back, which soon be soon. They can really only do the MRI on a specific area, since it is such a long process to do a very small area, so we had to pick one we felt she was experiencing the most pain. There is a chance she has AVN (avascular necrosis), which would show up on the MRI. The other option is neuropathy, which would have to be tested by just trying the medication and seeing if that makes the pain go away. Now that we have ruled out the "big one" (with final results to come) we can move on and get to the bottom of this.

Good News #2 to follow when we get the final results. Keep praying it will match the preliminary results!!!!!! Thank you to our ward for doing a fast for Brinley this Sunday. We are so lucky to be around so many caring people. As of right now, we are breathing a HUGE sigh of relief....and gearing up for the next steps. Looks like we'll get to go back to our "season of difficulties" without adding a relapse to it.

Confession of the day was from Dr. Druzgal, AFTER the fact, confessing she could not sleep last night worrying about Brinley. See why we love her so much???

I am so very glad for you all.

Abbie has been struggling with some bladder issues this past year that they can't quite nail down. She has been in test after test and one hospital procedure. During yet another x-ray today she just started sobbing, like she couldn't take it any more. She was scared and sad and as I walked around the corner to watch her through the window and started to cry myself I just thought, "How in the world has Kristen made it through the last couple of years. I am certain I would have died." I know you feel like you complain a lot on the blog but good grief, you deserve to get it off your chest. I'm not sure how all you cancer moms do it...
