6 Month Check-up

Today we head back to St. Jude for Courtney's 6 month check-up.  She will have a full body check at the dermatologist on Monday, blood work, brain MRI & chest x-ray on Tuesday, and a PET scan of her body on Wednesday.  I have been so scared for this week to come.  I am sure she will get great results, but I still get so nervous .... especially these last few week.  After this check-up we can breathe easy for the next 6 months. Please pray for her.  Thank you so much!!

UPDATE:  We returned from the hospital yesterday and ALL of Courtney's scans are CLEAR!!  While we were waiting for the results Courtney was very scared and was crying a lot.  I felt very positive that everything was going to be okay, and I told how I felt.... which made her feel much better.  A few mintues later we received our results, and we cried happy tears.  We were so relieved.  Praise God!!

We will continue our monthly trips down to Memphis, but do not need any scans for another 6 months.  I tried to make a vow to myself that I will worry less and do less research, but I came home last night and got right on the computer.  Ughhh!  It will take more time I guess.  :)
