Change of plans

They decided to start chemo today. He also had a bone marrow biopsy and a ct scan today. Those tests came back negative. Yay!!! He will have the MIBG on Wednesday (scan of his tissue.) But he wont have the bone scan tomorrow because they don't have any of the dye,that they inject in him to make the cancer/tumor light up, anywhere in Utah. They will have to schedule that in January. That is the test that I've been waiting for because it showed cancer in his skull last time. I guess I will just have to continue waiting patiently.
He was so cute today. He was just smiling and playing all day long. The only time he cried was when it was time for bed. What a nice change. Hopefully this hospital stay will be much easier than last time.
They are going to try and get us out of here by Friday night. Yay!!! He'll receive chemo earlier then he'll just need to be hydrated and we can go. He is receiving two chemotherapys this time. One is Etopiside. This is one of the very first chemotherapies he had. I'm not sure what the other one is but they each run for one hour.
Again thank you so much for all of your support and prayers. We really do appreciate it.

I am glad that they were able to start the Chemo earlier so you can be home for Christmas. I am also glad to read that he seems to be doing better. I sure hope that Die becomes available soon, as I understood there is an issue in obtainging it.
We love you guys and pray for Cohen that he will be Cancer free very soon.
