MIBG Injection

Today 3/1/2017 we were back at LPCH for the radioactive isotope injection in preparation for Reba’s MIBG scan tomorrow. Neuroblastoma will take up the isotope, so we are hoping not to see much uptake as that will show the vitality of the tumor decreasing.  Reba also has an MRI tomorrow, so it will be a long day of no food and long anesthesia. 

We will meet with her doctors on Monday 3/6 to discuss the results from the scans and the next step.

She was not happy about starting the IV but you wouldn’t know it from this pic!
Scared but so brave for the injection
Zoe came to support; great big sister

    I think Reba’s (excellent) memory stepped in between photos 1 and 2! She certainly looks very happy to have her big sister there for support. Praying and hoping for a smooth day tomorrow and excellent results on the 6th. Big hugs to everyone from all The Russes.
