The results were good. Less swelling than in the November images. The area that appeared damaged from radiation, has not changed. This lack of change supports the fact that this area has indeed been damaged from the radiation, and it is not tumor progression (as Boston suspected). Leah’s overall improvement is also evidence against tumor progression.
Leah will continue to receive Avastin every three weeks as her kidneys tolerate it. There will be another MRI in two months. Please continue to pray for complete healing for Leah. Her body has been through so much and has a lot of healing to do.
We are able to start day rehab on Monday, so we will be discharged tomorrow pending everything goes smoothly with our home BPAP this evening. The medical company delivered it this morning.
For day rehab, we will be at the hospital 5-6 hours a day, but staying at home. They will assess her progress weekly. I’m expecting she’ll be in day rehab for several weeks.
We are so happy that we will be able to continue her therapy while staying at home. Of course, it comes with a little bit of nervousness too.
She has an appointment with the oncologist on Monday. We will have labs before rehab, and if the numbers look good, chemo after rehab. I suspect pulminology will follow her closely as well.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Please keep them coming- we have a long way too go…
