Good News...and...NO News

ugh. We met with doc yesterday to review our scans that were taken a week and a half ago. They did two scans, one MRI and one CT. We purposefully schedule them together so she can have one anesthesia to cover both of them; she is up close to 80 general anesthetics in less than 3 years...

Any way, the MRI of her head/brain/face came out beautiful with no negative signs. Or really it had no more negative signs than we already knew which were the side effects and damage, but no new cancer nor new damage.

The CT also have her head/brain/face came out exactly the same. Unfortunately the CT was not supposed to be of her head/brain/face but rather of her chest where it is most likely that secondary cancer would show itself. Apparently ther was a "mix up" in the ordering of the tests. Now we don't have any idea what is going on with her chest and are going to have to reschedule a CT scan and another general anesthestic just for that. That is where the ugh comes from.

In addition we discussed with doc a "mole" that is developing on Rebekah's face. It's not really a "mole" but that is the best way that I can describe it. Doc is just a little concerned about it being cancerous (we are a lot concerned...) and wants us to have a dermatoligist look at it. One more thing to add to the mix.

We'll have to post on the progress of the boo boo house, or lack thereof, in another post.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Well, I'm grateful for the news about her MRI!!!! And I can't believe they had a mix up requiring yet another procedure.

I'll keep Rebecca in my prayers as she goes through another CT scan and visits the dermatologist.

Big hug sweet heart. I'm sorry the stress of the error and the lack of house accomplishment.
