Quick Update

On Monday, I had a long chat with the doctor late in the afternoon.

He feels pretty strongly that Eva will go into surgery at some point. I told him that for me, it was not a question of if but when.

As confident as I feel about Eva's oncologists, this news was such a reality check that we need to have many folks looking at things. So, I talked to my dear friend MJ who works at MD Anderson and am hoping to get a second opinion there in the next week or so.

I aslo sent Eva's CT results to another dear friend who is a radiologist so that he can interpret what I was reading. When I sat down with the computer to use as a dictionary, there were words in there that scared me to death.

Hopefully, Michael will be able to put my mind at ease later today.

Anyway, we're all well here. Eva and Jack are just fine.

I'll keep you posted!

Yikes - scary stuff. I hope the other doctors can put your mind at ease. In any case, I look forward to reading about your 2008.75 celebration after this next hurdle is jumped...

I know we don't know each other and my comment may seem strange, but I am SOOO glad you are thinking of getting a second opinion, my son was diagnosed with stage 2 Neuroblastoma, and it doesn't sound that much the same anymore. I am sure you have a great doctor, but I think second opinions are a good thing. I will be praying for little Eva as results come back and decisions are made. I will be praying for your peace of mind.

Gina, just posted on your blog. Thanks for keeping Eva in your prayers! I will do the same for Carter!
