CT Scan

As many of you already know, William was not sedated for the CT scan. However, Dr. Ross reviewed the report and feels that, for his purposes, it was sufficient. So far, so good, as there was nothing that appeared abnormal. Two of the specialists needed to see the actual films, so we are still waiting for them to receive their CDs in the mail. If it is not clear enough for them to see what they need, we will have to decide if we will run another or just go straight to an MRI, which will include another surgery. The benefit would be the MRI itself and the ability to draw bone marrow and a biopsy, all in one trip. We're still waiting for the tests to come back from the MAYO clinic.

  1. Ben and I are happy to hear that the inital reading of the CT scan looks good. We are anxious to hear what the other doctors have to say.

  2. As Sunny stated, very glad to hear about the CT scan and await the news from the other doctors.
    If the CT is sufficient for the other doctors then no more testing? You are still waiting on the blood test results, correct? Hopefully William is surprising and delighting everyone with more steps being taken. Just wanting to let you know I am thinking of William. He shows a great deal of strength.
