Well it just never ends…Brennan’s oncologist failed to mention to Cindy last Friday when she gave her the results of the MRI’s and other scans that Breanan also has a .5 cm lesion about in the center of his brain. She had to find out this terrible news by asking for the reports and reading it herself! The whole family needs some prayers especially now. So Neuroblastoma has returned along with the abdomen tumor. lung and liver tumor are stable, now a brain lesion. We just want our baby well. I get my updates from Cindy most times before she updates Brennan’s Caringbridges site but she goes into much more detail, so check there also.

Brennan is having his Med's switched to treat Pneumonia caused by aspiration from throwing up. Which is most likely his cause of fevers, and steadily rising WBC. They're also going to begin chemo (hopefully sometime tonight) Hopefully Brennan can complete his 10 days of treatment before counts drop, otherwise there's a big risk of his pneumonia being able to do whatever it wants. Tumor boards met today about Brennan’s recent scans. No one seems to be convinced this brain lesion is NEW spread from his secondary cancer.. apparently from his DR's words.. Neuroblastoma & Sarcoma don't "commonly" do this where the spot is, its too small to biopsy.
So all we can do is proceed forward and hope its no longer there, or not bigger when he is re- scanned. Good thing is Brennan can still receive radiation to his hipbone for the NB tumor and possibly (if needed) his liver lesion and lung lesion after surgical removal of abdominal tumor. It’s also suspected Brennan has Gastric paresis.. basically paralysis of his stomach, which doesn't allow or move enough to empty enough. So after they get a handle on the pneumonia they will begin meds to stimulate his stomach to move more, and hopefully this will stop his throwing up.
