August 3, 2011

Today, Kass was excited to not have her backpack attached to her back on the way to tennis practice. Since today was MRI day, Kass has to be off the anti-neoplaston treatment 4 hours before her MRI, so she didn't get two doses of her treatment.  

At practice she started ok, but had to stop midway thru since she said she started having chest pains.  As soon as she rested the pain went away, but we didn't want to push the envelope so she watched till practice was over.  Marilyn, the nurse from Burzysnki that calls us everyday, told us to keep a watch on her to make sure it doesn't happen again and that it could be her body's reaction to stopping treatment and exercising.  But if it does happen again we will need to take her into a doctor for further review.

As we left for Steinberg Diagnostics for her MRI, I couldn't help to feel anxious and nervous.  I know the doctor at the Clinic told us not to expect much change in the tumor this early in the game, but I guess part of us would love for a small miracle to start happening already.  

When we got into the MRI room we met with our technician who told us Kass test would only take 30 minutes.  I had to do a double take and have him repeat the statement because she's never had an MRI that has taken under 2 hours.  He also was afraid to use Kassidy's catherer to administer her contrast, which I insisted that's what it was for and there was no reason to stick her when she had a perfectly working port straight to her main artery.  Well, I could't believe it, but the test was done in 45 minutes! Wow Kass and I were pleasantly surprised.   As we were leaving I told them to expect us every 6 weeks and that we would be getting to know them quite well in the next couple of years.

The MRI results and report will be available on the following Monday.  Ugh! I know!!! The thing I hate the most.... Waiting for very important results.  Well, it is what it is so we will wait with as much patience as we can and hope for the best.

Thank you for your good thoughts and prayers today, they helped keep us calm. :)
