MRI Results - Sept 2016

Emmett's latest MRI was 9/20/16.  We opted to do this scan in New Mexico again.  This scan included both the brain and spine, and Emmett again did the whole thing unsedated!  We're so proud of him!  At this point the doctors will probably stop scheduling sedated scans, so that means a whole lot less anesthesia than he's been getting up to this point.  And the scans are so much shorter unsedated, and there's no recovery afterwards.  So we love it.

We got the results on Monday, and things looked great!  The doctor said that she couldn't even find the spot without help of the radiologist because it has reduced so much.  And it didn't pick up any contrast this time.  So that's all awesome news.  We believe the team in Boston will be very pleased.

Last year at this time we were in Boston waiting for the doctors to decide what to do about this spot, and things didn't look promising.  AT/RT recurrence is generally incurable, and they were very upfront with that fact.  And here we are, a year later, back in Albuquerque, enjoying General Conference from the comfort of our own home, and from all appearances Emmett is doing great.

Words can't express our gratitude for the blessings of heaven we have received over the last year.  Every day is a miracle, and we've enjoyed another year!  And we will keep praying for more.  How thankful we are for those of you who continue to pray for our family; we feel the strength and the blessings of your prayers every day.  Thank you all for your continued support!  God bless you all!


Summer fun in the mitten!
