The Amazing Shrinking Tumor

Gang, you will not believe the news we got today. It’s amazing, exciting, and a little bit breathtaking: the tumor is SMALLER!

When Jax was first diagnosed last year, doctors said this type of tumor could do one of three things: grow, stay the same, or shrink. Of course, we hoped with all of our might that each scan would show shrinkage.

The last scan showed growth, so we didn’t know what to expect. We were nervous for this scan and we certainly didn’t think we’d see a smaller tumor!

We are so relieved! Maybe this is the turning point – maybe it’s finally time for us to get a break and start settling in to our “normal” life – one without a million doctors and specialists. It would really be a dream come true to finally stop living a life of anxiety and stress about medical stuff.

The best news of the day for me is that Jax doesn’t have to go in for another MRI for NINE MONTHS! WhooHOO!

We.Are.Grateful.

Mom and Jax celebrated the good news with a special treat. <3

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.

  1. No one deserves a break and super awesome result more than Jax, and by extension his parents!!! I have to say though, despite the tests and procedures he has gone through, the pictures of him make him seem like a very, very happy child 🙂
