Jack's MRI Report

Thursday night. Home from Big D and Jack's MRI and follow up visit. Jack's tumor area that had been treated over the past several years is still looking great. No change there, thanks be to God. I wasn't worried in any capacity that there would be a return of growth in this area, as always it is a rubber meets the road time that brings up feelings that we don't have to deal with any more on a daily basis. But I wasn't worried about any regrowth, God removed that tumor. There was however some changes in the left lateral ventrical that has caught the attention of the radiologist. Several spots that when today's MRI is compared to an MRI a year ago has shown some subtle changes. Compared to the MRI from 6 months ago there is not even a noticeable change.

So what does that mean? That means that something is slightly changing over a pretty long period of time. I asked Dr. Bowers about this change, is it typical? He said it is not typical and truthfully he had nothing of any real substance to tell us because he was not sure of what they were looking at, just that it needed to be monitored. Several spots.

I would like to have walked out of that office today with a clear report for Jack, I was not expecting to hear about several spots. But c'est la vie. Life is never without bumps in the road. I will just go on expecting those spots to go away, or not change, pray for that, and daily lift any anxiety I have up to God. It will be His peace and strength that will see us through these next months and years just as it has been for the last 4 and I would have it no other way. Thanks be to God for His constant assurance.
