Thanks for your continued support of Tommy and our family!
Tommy rebounded well today from a long post operation recovery. So much so his care was transferred from the surgical team to the oncology team. A very big step in the overall process. He had his first solid food today, a happy meal from "Old McDonald's", compliments of Kevin Preston, E-21, who I bumped into in the food court. Thanks Kev!
Although we do not have the analysis back from the lab in Chicago, the Children's oncology team had 2 separate pathologists analyze the biopsies and found no evidence of anaplasia (the characteristic which identifies an unfavorable Wilms tumor).
The team has decided to start the chemotherapy tomorrow. We never thought we'd be so happy to start chemo. The road ahead will have its bumps, but today has been a good day.
Tommy even met Spider-man and watched him wash the windows!
Thank you, and please keep praying for all the sick kids here at Children's!
