GREAT NEWS!

Dr. Wright said a few of the tests, that were taken in his first week, came back and are favorable. She thinks he has a better chance of living!!! :o) We are so happy! She said that they'd have a better idea if they knew for sure that it didn't travel to his skull and cheek bone. The only way they would know is if they did a biopsy of the skull and were able to get a piece of the tumor. She said that it is harder to locate because it isn't a mass. So for now they aren't going to do a biopsy. So the only thing that is putting him in the high risk category is his age. We got here at 11:00 this morning.
Cohen wasn't too happy to be here. He kept pointing at the door. They started him with iv fluids to get him really hydrated before they could start chemo. They started the chemo treatments at 9:00pm. He is receiving 3 today and 2 tomorrow. 6 1/2 total hours. It is dark so I will give names and side effects tomorrow.
Thank you so so much for all of your prayers!

I'm glad to that things are going as well as possible, I would also point to the door if I were in his shoes, but it sounds like he is quite a little trooper!!!

This is great news. I hope that chemo goes well this round and that before long this is all just a faint memory as you watch him play and get into mischief! Will continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
Hugs,
Carolyn
