We met with the oncologist...



and it was depressing... my son has cancer. yep I know that- I hope everyday that it is a mistake but it's not. We are still not sure what treatment we will do yet. Bryson's type of tumor, an ependymoma, is not really responsive to Chemotherapy and we have done Radiation therapy before it makes it difficult to know what to do. They generally do not radiate children twice. We are now waiting a response from the "Ependymoma Guru" at St. Jude's Hospital to see what he thinks about re-radiating Bryson... Dh and I may end up flying to Memphis to talk to the dr. directly and IF we do radiate Bryson again, it will need to be done at St. Jude's in Memphis. Yep, Cancer Sucks!

We did go have some fun yesterday tho! Since our yard has smaller trees, we don't get very many leaves so we had to go someplace that did!! Bryson did not want to go but he ended up having a great time and I got some fun pictures too!!
