No more Neuroblastoma!

We got GREAT news yesterday! The MIGB scan from last Friday (bone scan specifically for neuroblastoma) showed absolutely NO evidence of neuroblastoma anywhere in Bronson's body! Even the primary site, the adrenal glands, were free of tumors!! His cancer markers are also both completely normal! So no need for any more chemo or treatment, only monthly check ups! It's amazing how far he's come and how God has been with him, and us, every step of the way! 

The results from the biopsy of his old liver came back and there was no evidence of any tumor left, but the entire liver was necrotic. I asked the dr how long Bronson would have lasted with his old liver and he said probably  not very long because of how dead it was. Thank God everything worked out when it did! 

I previously posted that the doctors had thought that the seizures were from something called PRES, but the MRI from last Thursday ruled that out. So, today he's supposed to start a 24hour EEG with video monitoring, which I'm hoping is normal. 

I've been staying at the hospital with Bronson since Sunday now and it's been great to be able to spend 24 hrs a day with him but I miss my bed! From talking with some of Bronson's dr's it sounds like he's going to be able to come home next week!!! I thought this day would never come and now possibly only 1 week left to go!

How very very wonderful. Thank you for your time and effort in sharing on-line with us.

Who knows what God has in store for Bronson who can now grow up a normal little boy - who will one day tell his own children his amazing story: loving Heavenly Father, steadfast mom and dad, incredible health care providers, and very very special aunt!

God bless you all.
