Today We Are Thankful....

I just wanted to update really quick so if i don't get too later, then you're all up to date!
So like i said yesturday the MRI was done last nite and this morning hematology came to do the spinal in Colin's crammed little room. It went good...the Doc said there wasn't any increase in spinal fluid pressure (which is a good thing) and it was looking pretty clear, which is also a good thing, but to the naked eye, it only tells so much. We may be lucky to get some preliminary results today, but i'm not holding my breath. Colin is resting now, and he will continue to lay flat for a couple hours to reduce the risk of those wicked spinal headaches. Sleep is the best thing for him, so i'm happy he's resting. Radiation was rescheduled today for 4pm and then they told us I COULD TAKE COLIN HOME TO ANDY AND NAT'S!!!!!! YEAYEAYEYAYE I am so excited to have him back with me full time, and for his mind, he does SO much better at our home away from home! See? there was no point last night to worry about today because today we have so much to be thankful for! I think every day we have so much to be thankful for, but as for is a good day!
Just wanted to let you know where things are at!
i'll be in touch if not today, tomorrow with how things are going and if we've heard anything from our Doc's!
Luv, Melissa
