Great news for Declan


Hello my friends
Got the results today. 1) There is nothing in or growing on my brain (except brain cells of course) 2) The monster is my orbit (eye) is “just a sliver” my Doctor said 3) My lungs are clear 4) The monster is my neck has got much smaller 5) No-one knows what the heck those bumps were – the kitty cat scan couldn’t tell.
So the part we like most and are celebrating is the monster “sliver”. Before it would always grow back after chemo and it has been 2 months since surgery and nothing has grown back, so we think that is very exciting news. As for the bumps, the Doctor said if they go big again, we can do an FNA, where they stick a needle in and suck some of it out to run tests. But at this stage they have almost disappeared so we gonna leave it for now and if they come back, we will take steps. Even though the Doctors don’t know what my bumps are we are happy cos they said they don’t look like monsters – so that’s good news don’t you think.
I went and got some blood today. I just love it. For 5 hours Mommy is mine and mine alone. Nowhere to go and nothing to do except play with me. It doesn’t get better. Daddy started his exercise program this morning. Mommy hoofed him out of bed this morning when I woke up at 5.30 and sent him off on his way. Mommy doesn’t know, but Daddy told me that he went and parked his car outside Wimpy at Featherbrooke just up the road from us and waited for them to open at 7. Then he had a man size breakfast which made him work up a sweat which then satisfied Mommy that he had indeed done some form of sports. Daddy’s plan is to tell Mommy in a month’s time that exercise is bad for him cos since he started his sports program he gained 5kg. What a naughty Daddy!
Lots and lots and lots of love from a very happy Declan, who slept through again last night because he wasn’t an ice lolly.
P.S. My Christening video is on the Home Page and not the About Declan page – sorry – Mommy’s porridge brain at work again
