The radiology team delivered a full report on the results of the MRI, and they determined that some of what appears to be tumor growth might be attributed to bleeding that has accumulated at the tumor site instead. So, they feel that blood (as opposed to cancerous tissue) may be building up in the mass and causing growth/pressure, and that blood would be indicative of tumor destruction rather than tumor growth. I can't even describe how I felt when I heard the word DESTRUCTION. It also felt amazing to hear that the pressence of blood may be a sign that the tumor is dying. It was music to my ears.
While I am so grateful for this new found hope, I am not yet relieved. Yes, I am breathing a bit easier today, but I have yet to let out a real sigh. That will come when Ty shows clinical signs of improvement. Right now the pressure from the cranial bleed is causing the poor baby so much pain and nausea and it hurts Lou and I a thousand times more to see him like this. It should be our pain, not his.
His speech may be comprimised by the tumor, but his cuteness sure isn't :) Enjoy!
