Upcoming Scans

Well we made it back from Camp Sunshine and everyone had a blast.  I hope to post some pictures and videos from the incredible week that we had.  In the meantime, we have a couple scans scheduled for Isabella in the next couple of days.  On Sunday, August 14, we have a PET Scan scheduled that will hopefully provide some more insight into what the new spot in Isabella's brain is.  Then on Tuesday, we have another MRI scheduled which will show whether the spot has grown or not.

We do continue to hope that this is a giant mistake, but our hopes of that were diminished over the past week as Isabella displayed more weakness on her right side in both her hand and her feet.  This is usually a sign of some tumor activity.  But hopefully we'll know for sure in the next few days. 

I think the worst part in the last couple of weeks has been the uncertainty.  If we know definitively what is going on, at least we can formulate a plan.  Until then, all we can do is worry and wait.

Happy 7th Birthday Isabella!

Today is Isabella's 7th birthday. Right now, the family is up in Maine at Camp Sunshine ( so we will be celebrating her birthday away from home. Sorry for the brevity of the post, but Internet coverage in the middle of the woods is pretty spotty. I hope to post full coverage with pictures of our week when we get back to civilization.
