Special Exposure Wednesday

This is just what I needed to see - a smiling neurosurgeon!!

Dr. McYummy had good news to share with us - Ashley's tumors have not grown! He said we will do MRIs annually for two more years, and if they reveal no changes, we will go to every 5 years.

There are a couple of things still to be tended to though. First, Ashley has had some weakness in her right arm and hand. She will be having an MRI of her spine to see if there are any issues there. (Remember, the disease she has can cause tumors to grow anywhere....).

And, Ronnie is going to have x-rays of his shunt, from head to belly, just to get a baseline. Dr. McYummy said everything looked good with the shunt. He felt around, and checked a few things that might indicate a problem, but nothing caused him concern.

Two good pieces of news!!

Happy Wednesday everyone, and make sure to check out all the other Special Exposure Wednesday shots at 5 Minutes For Special Needs!
