I don’t want to type this. I want nothing more than to be able to give a positive update. I’m so very sad. The bone scan from Friday shows another “hot spot”. We’re told there’s a 50/50 chance that it is more cancer. This time it is in the same (right) leg, but at the very top of his femur near his pelvis. Again, he has no pain there. Again, we are on the rare path. We go back to Children’s Mercy for another MRI tomorrow and then return to KU on Thursday to learn results and course of treatment as well as have the cast removed. If the MRI is inconclusive, like before, we will have to do another surgery to biopsy this area – so possibly two surgeries at once. If this 2nd spot is cancer, Mason will have to do chemotherapy as well as surgeries.
To top off the day, on our way home from the hospital, we found out that Alli got a concussion at school. Because we don’t get any cell service on this KU campus, we didn’t even know. We are grateful for friends who take care of our kids when we can’t, friends who leave supper on our doorstep knowing we need it but don’t want to talk, and friends who bring by groceries knowing we are out of almost everything. All of this happened just today. God is definitely showing up through His people. We will also be grateful to never have another day as crappy as this one. It’s not even 6 pm and I need it to be over. Please gather your prayer warriors for us.
