bitter sweet

Yesterday results came back about Bryson's tumor and it has the MYCN gene, which pretty much means that the tumor continuously makes copies of itself...so it just keeps growing and regenerating.

This was a pretty big blow to their family. He was upgraded to the High Risk category now. The chemo treatments from last weekend are now considered obsolete and they will start over with much more aggressive treatments when the next course is due. We are scared but always knew this was a possibility. Please continue your prayers for this sweet baby boy...

About half an hour ago the family finally got home. They were discharged from the hospital for the weekend and are going to try to spend some normal time together...aside from his ATC meds and injections that is. He will have lab work drawn again Monday, so hopefully they can have a peaceful weekend. Oh, and of course their situation must get more complicated...Mama P just found out unexpectedly that she's 8 weeks pregnant.



The hubby and I are planning an evening at home tonight, game night with some friends. We're very romantic aren't we...any one else have fun Valentines day plans?
