Long Day for Logan & Mom

Kelly & Logan ventured north to Seattle about 11:30 am and did not get home until 6 pm.  They only had 2 appointments.  First appointment was at 2 pm and was a quick injection of some nuclear substance into Logan.  Yes it is literally a radioactive substance called a tracer and when they do the MIBG tomorrow it will light any Nueroblastoma cancer like a Christmas tree.  The nurse unfortunately was having trouble starting the IV and blood was going everywhere.  Logan was not to happy about that. The next appointment was supposed to be at 3:40 pm but doctor was finishing casting another child so did not get to them until about 4:30 pm.  
We found a little more about Thursday's surgery.  It actually will be an out patient surgery which we were VERY glad to hear.  The doctor described the area around his left hip and femur as not a mass but more of liquid in the bones.  So what she will be doing is drilling a hole into his bone to drain liquid as well as test marrow.  He will be on crutches for 2 weeks because bone will be weak and a fall could break it.  Logan is actually excited to be on crutches....thinks it's cool.
So tomorrow Logan, little brother Peyton, and I go up for a 2:30 pm MIBG scan hopefully that will show NO Nueroblastoma.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers.
