So far so good

Dylan's brain CT has come back clear, great news, we should have the rest of the results from this week's work up by next week. Today he had his bone marrow biopsies which did not go so smoothly. Poor Dylan started to scream while in the procedure room. What had happened, was his medi-port needle blew and the fluid went into his chest. Dylan has grown and put on weight, so the regular needle must have slipped out. Dylan's chest is now swollen from the fluid that lies under the skin. This will go away on it's own, but it left Dylan miserable. He has an MIBG injection this afternoon, ready for scan tomorrow, but because his medi-port is not in working order, he must have a regular IV placed in his arm and he is not happy about it at all. He is however, very happy that due to his work up this week he has missed 4 days of school! Alyssa has surgery today, so I will also visit her at some point, please keep her in your prayers.
