Well as you all know we have had a rough couple of weeks to say the least. Thankfully my sweet girl has crossed a few hurdles and was able to get out of the hospital and get back home on Tuesday afternoon. Her fever finally went away and her counts are finally on the rise. To say we were excited to get back home and into our own beds is a HUGE understatment as it has been almost three weeks since we have been away. We have definitely had enough of the hospital for awhile! She is still really weak and not back to herself just yet but no doubt she will get there.
So yesterday I received a call from her oncologist in New Orleans saying that Dr. Sholler (oncolgist) in Michigan reviewed her MRI that was taken after the second set of seizures. Upon reviewing the MRI it was decided that Bailey should have a CT scans as well as an MIBG scan right away. We knew the MRI was showing some “weird” areas in her skull but couldn’t be sure what exactly was showing up…was it infection, progression, etc… with that being said both oncologists have decided they want to know for sure if this is progression that is showing, so Bailey will be having the scans done in New Orleans next week.
We need more prayers…prayers that these scans will be clear…prayers that the treatment is still working like it was a month ago and getting rid of every last spot of this cancer once and for all…prayers that our storm is passing and our rainbow is about to shine through…prayers for a miracle. My sweet girl had endured so much in the past 3.5 years and she continues to battle on with the bravest of smiles and the most contagious laugh. She is truly my sunshine on these rainy days we have been facing…I cannot imagine how tired her poor little body must be, yet still she fights. So amazing!
As always I will be sure to keep you all posted as to what we find out although I am prepared for these doctors to be amazed by the grace of GOD once again…I hope they are baffled beyond belief because they can’t find a thing! Our GOD is so much bigger than all of this and there is no doubt in my mind HE has healed her.
