Thank you to Mike, the MRI Tech, for giving Oliver an early Halloween treat! Usually during Oliver's radiation treatments they had candy for him to choose from afterwards, but they all had nuts so he couldn't eat them (he's allergic). Mike was so kind to remember this and made up for it by stocking a trick-or-treat pumpkin with skittles and starburst... two of his favorites! It's the little things... seriously...

9 month MRI - September 29th, 2010
Today Oliver had his nine month post diagnosis MRI down in Iowa City. This was a difficult one for me because nine months ago we were told he had 9 - 12 months left to live. We don't know exactly what the future holds or how things will eventually unfold and so this MRI was particularly nerve racking for me. Ed and I thought that it could possibly be growing because he was starting to complain of nausea every once in a while again and his eye was turning further and further inward. I was surprised to find out that there was no new growth and that it may have even shrunk a bit!!! What WONDERFUL news! This news means more time with Oliver -- more memories to make! Thank you, seriously, thank you for your prayers and your genuine concern for our family. It makes all the difference!
