CT No Help

Well, the CTscan Max had of his ribs was of no assistance to his surgeon. Didn't show anything that would tell her exactly what she'd be looking for, so she will not do the biopsy.

Max's oncologist is still very wary about the back surgery biopsy, so he is suggesting that Max have another needle biopsy of two spots on his spine. This is a fairly simple procedure that leaves him in very little pain. Last time he didn't even need tylenol at home. He'll have this procedure this week.

We're crossing our fingers that one of these show something or give us some clue as to what's going on in Max's little body. Should nothing come of these, Andy & I will have a consult with the back surgeon to find out just what Max will have to go through should the back surgery be necessary. We'll let you know...
