A Call From The Doctor...

...and not exactly what we wanted to hear. The doctor prefaced the call with "this does not make sense" to her and told us her first thoughts were "this is going to make for a long weekend for this family". The PET scan shows a lot of activity - and activity is bad and means "these could be cancerous cells". It shows "activity" in her jaw, her spine, her lungs and her pelvis (and somewhere else I think but I can't remember).

The doctor was basically saying that this did not make sense to her because it did not fit with what they "expected" to see based on everything else that was going on including "how good Rebekah looks". The doctor wants to wait until they tumor board meets on Tuesday and review this with them while at the same time reviewing her MRI last week and her past scans. She was trying to lead us to believe that one or two areas would be concern but this many positives makes her think something is wrong with the test. We would sure like to think so but are not that confident right now. Our minds are saying "ya that's great to say but we are seeing a falacy in that logic and that falacy is that all of the areas that they mentioned are areas that ewings sarcoma is known to attack." We would like to be wrong.

It is time for some major prayer between now and Tuesday. God is very capable of making it so that any follow up scan that we end up having to do is completely clear, all it takes is faith; have some with us.

But just as important, the doctor also told us that they had three more cancer diagnosis in clinic this week. While our weekend is going to be long for us, it is going to seem like eternity for these newly diagnosed families who don't know what their future holds in store for them and their kiddos. Please pray for them all.
