Medical Update

Today Sara had her annual MRI and oncology visit.  She was moved into the "once a year" category a couple visits ago since her tumor growth had slowed almost to a complete stop.

And I am thrilled to report that Sara's status remains the same.  Her tumor is stable!!!!  Thank you Lord!

We also saw Sara's orthopedist for her last follow up from her hip surgery in Dec.  Her hip is completely healed and the surgery was a total success.  The stress fracture in her right leg is also completely healed, also great news!  With this news I was able to schedule the last step of this whole thing, which is the removal of the hardware they put in back in Dec.  It has to be removed or eventually it will keep Sara's leg from being able to grow longer.

We will be removing the hardware in late July.  Its a simple outpatient procedure.  Sara shouldn't have much pain at all, just some at the incision site for a couple of days.  No real stitches or big things involved.

So that's it!  I'm happy to be thanking God for his amazing blessing that Sara is doing well.  We got the best possible news we could have hoped to receive today!
