Injection and Scans

1/9 and 1/10 we were back at LPCH for the MIBG injection, MIBG and MRI scans. We were scheduled originally for these scans mid December but because Reba was on antibiotics for strep throat they rescheduled her to January.

This is the longest we have ever gone between scans! The last set of scans was 8/23, so it has been 20 weeks!!! We have never gone longer than 12 weeks. On one hand we are so happy to have enjoyed so much time at home, not really thinking about it. On the other hand a little nerve-wracking to let so much time go by without checking on the mass.

As usual Reba was very brave for her IV starts, injection, anesthesia, all of it. The injection went fine, no reactions. We premedicated as we always do. 13, 7 and 1 hour prior to the injection with steroids and Benadryl.

Looking at 2019 our family goal is to remain positive and grateful. So far Reba has responded very well to the treatment she has received. She has been in observation for a year and a half. We pray and hope this will continue. Another goal for 2019 is to try to do the scans without anesthesia, if Reba can be still for an hour or so. We think she can and are going to try to make this happen. Wish us luck!

Results next Wednesday 1/16 with her oncologist. Will update with the plan. ❤️

She always travels in style❤️
Baby brother Shane came too, a first for all of us!
Sweet brave one❤️❤️
