Bad News Confirmed

Dr. Roberts received the radiologists reading of Max's mibg scan and has confirmed yesterday's fears as real. Max's MIBG does show abnormal areas in multiple places: the skull, middle of the chest, the pelvis, both thigh bones, and the left knee. We will be meeting with him soon to discuss a game plan. Already he is working on getting CT scans for Max to determine if the cancer is bone or soft tumor. That's all we've got so far this morning.

Keeping your family in my prayers. I have checked on Max each day for the past 6 months after learning about him-and your family- through Will Lacey's site. I am in constant awe of your strength as a family. No parent should have to deal with this...my heart breaks with this news but believes in Max and his inner strength to survive.

I am sorry. I am angry. I am just simply pissed off. But I do believe in Max and his parents and doctors. And I do believe that our heavenly father can provide healing and strength and I will keep praying for all of that. Never give up!
