MRI, CT and Surgery Scheduled

Monday June 25, 2012 - Last Thursday we came to start the last infusion of this cycle but they wanted to see Jake in the clinic first.  When we arrived we went to the clinic and saw the Dr and he thought that Jake had too many sores in his mouth and throat to go another round of chemo.   So he sent us home until Monday the 25th if Jake felt good enough.  By Sunday afternoon Jake was feeling better enough that he could eat without any pain killers.

We left at 9:30am on Monday to come back to PCMC,  we got here around 11am and by the time we had registered him it was 12:30pm before they had the fluids running and we were on our way to starting chemo.  As of right now it is 8:00pm and his isn't ready to start yet.  Hopefully soon!!   Then we can be home by Thursday.  The nurse practitioner came and let us know that they have scheduled his MRI and CT to check to see how his lung nodule is responding to the chemo.  It is scheduled for July the 2nd.

Dr. Scott the orthopedic oncologist has scheduled the surgery for July 11th.  We will meet with him sometime before that to go over the surgery.  Having a some anxiety with that.  Always new that this was the way it was going to be but it just seems to come so fast and more of a reality.  It is interesting ...... I remember thinking on new years day what this year had in store for our family.  Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought we would be facing this.
