Well, I think I already gave away the good news in the subject line. We didn’t want to keep you holding your breath, and we just couldn’t wait to share this news with you all!
As we mentioned in the previous post, Adam had a series of scans and procedures over the past week, including a bone marrow biopsy, an MIBG scan, and an MRI of his entire body.
We had a follow up appointment with his oncologist this afternoon to review the results, and all scans showed no more signs of cancer! So Adam is now officially CANCER FREE!!!!!! Words cannot express how we feel. This is the best news we could’ve ever received!! Tears of joy came streaming down my face as I heard this news. I thought about what our life would be like now, and how Adam can finally begin to have a normal childhood. We thank and praise the Lord for this good report.
It was exactly 7 months ago that Adam was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Next Friday, he will have some labwork done for some final checks before scheduling his permanent IV removal (central line). After that, he will have scans and follow up appointments every 3 months for the next year or so, and ongoing follow-up likely for the rest of his life.
There’s so much more to say and share with you all. So more to come later. For now, we just wanted to share this very exciting news with you all. Thank you for all your prayers and support these past 7 months. We could not have made it through without you. We love you all.
(hopefully the video works this time…)
