In August 2010, the tumor that we have been treating with chemotherapy for the last 3 months, wasn't even there. In February, it was the size of an M & M, and now yesterday's MRI showed even more growth.
Bailey has been asymptomatic with BOTH of the brain tumors she has, which surprises her doctors.
I kept thinking yesterday, that if I didn't fight so hard for insurance to approve the first MRI, which kept getting denied because insurance and doctors didn't feel a baseline MRI was important enough, we would never have known that these tumors exist.
The treatment that we have been doing will be changed. The "baby chemo" Bailey has been taking for the last 3 months, will be bumped up to something more aggressive. A biopsy will be scheduled to see what kind of tumor this is, which will determine the type of chemo they choose.
We will continue to fight our battle. We will continue to push for the care that we feel we deserve....And most of all, we will continue to THRIVE ON!
