July MRI

Leah had an MRI on July 6th. We met with her doctor the following day to discuss the results. The images showed no improvement in the existing tumor and damage. There was also one new area of change in the tumor that is likely progression.  The images were sent to Boston for review. Yesterday, we heard from Boston, and they are in agreement. The new area of change is likely progression, but we cannot be certain. If it’s not progression, it’s additional damage from radiation. 

The plan is another MRI in October with a few extra images. We are also looking into a Methionine PET study, which may give us additional information. Time should provide some clarity.

In the meantime, it’s life as usual. We pray that there are no new symptoms in the coming months, and that we have a smooth start to the new school year.

On another note, we did find a new pulmonologist. Yay! Had an initial appointment and following up again in a few months. I think we’re on the right track, finally!
