Devon's Checkup ~ Radiology and more

We went this morning to Radiology check-up. This is Dr. Fitzgerald standing in for Dr. Davis.

Basically this was a check up having to do with the whole head radiation Devon received before Gamma Knife Treatment.

 

As we were waiting I decided to call Dr. Dial's Gamma Knife team just to see when we would hear from them and they said I should have called them a day or so after the MRI! She gave us the news over the phone.

 

Devon was treated, if you'll remember, for 4 tumors or lesions in his brain. The report only speaks of 3 of them (So they are saying that one is nonexistant? Im still not exactly sure what she was saying about that. I may call again just to save my sanity) saying 1 was barely noticeable with contrast and the other 2 show NO new growth! That is the goal they say, no new growth because thats what cancer is "the Growth of tumor cells." This is all great news and definitely a turnaround from the last year.

 

They still arent saying remission yet which bugs me. I am beginning to wonder how often for cautions sake they dont yet say the word. Oh I hope that is the case.

 

Im so happy to see his life starting to return to some normalcy.
