Have to really believe in miracles

MIBG Scan findings, verbatim from the report:
The previously noted right-sided apical mass no longer demonstrates increased MIBG uptake. Instead, there is no a new paratracheal area of increased MIBG metabolism in the left paratracheal apical region. Comparison from 1/5/07 and 9/5/07.

I don't understand how after 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 20 rounds of radiation specifically targeting that left region how the neuroblastoma is still active. Just really bummed. The good news for the day was that her bone and bone marrow that was extracted on Friday came back today and there were no cancer cells in them. I'm tired.

Hi there. Our little guy Jak is the 3 year old diagnosed with neuroblastoma a couple months after Jovee. We just wanted to let you know that you're all in our thoughts and prayers. We got back from the Sacred Heart last night from Jak's most recent biopsy surgery. We'd love to hear from you sometime, mort@stoutbytes.com. Jak sends a big hug for Jovee. Take care. Laura Mortensen
