For Those Who Check In


This quickie post is just for those who like to check in to see the skinny on Bennett and his journey down the Special Needs Rabbit Hole. We had the MRI on Tuesday, and it was still clean. Translation? No evidence at this time of regrowth of the Grade II Oligoastrocytoma. (That's a brain tumor that usually occurs to middle-aged people, for those of you who might be new to the party.)

Next scheduled MRI will be in late August/early September. That visit to Cleveland Clinic will be major, probably requiring three days. Lab work, MRI, PET, EEG, meetings with Epilepsy, Neuro-Surgery, Neuro-Oncology and Neuro-Psychology. I think that's it.

As for a more detailed report of the trip, I'll get it done tomorrow or Friday. Today is a catch-up day with work-type stuff.

So that's it...light is green, trap is clean. For now.

OUT...
