I know I am seriously slacking on this updating of the blog. I am pleased to tell everyone that Ellie came home on Monday. She has been hanging with me at home for the past week. We are hoping and praying that she will be going back to school this upcoming Tuesday. Wednesday is another day downtown for our monthly check up with the Doctor. I am hoping that all goes well and Ellie will be able to get chemotherapy. She has not been able to get Chemotherapy in two weeks now. Also I am hoping to get to see her MRI scan. The doctor did stop by while we were in the hospital to tell me he was Optimistically pleased. That the tumor was ever so slightly smaller and it was more cystic. Basically it means that the Cysts that are inside the tumor have grown leaving less tumor hopefully. This is the first time that the pathologist has reported any kind of shrinkage in the tumor. So I said enthusiastically well that means the Chemotherapy is working? And the doctor said that they are still unsure if the chemotherapy is working. This is a good sign but only time will tell.
