It's Spring, but we got 2 inches of snow...

Anyway, Ally is still HAMA positive. I need to call back tomorrow to find out if we retest in 2-3 weeks or 3-4 weeks. You may be thinking...well, just split the difference and test in 3 weeks, but we have figured out the system. If they say 2-3 weeks that means her numbers are coming down and she is close to being negative, and if they say 3-4 weeks she is not close. So for 2-3 weeks we go for 2 weeks, and 3-4 we go for 4-5 weeks...wow that was a lot of boring info for you!

Anyway, next week Ally will have scans on Thursday, with a trip up to DHMC on Wednesday, as well, for the MIBG injection and to get the CT contrast (so we don't have to be at the hospital 4 hours before the scan to drink it). Her scans are planned for the afternoon, so that means a day of no eating. We need lots of prayers for a happy Ally and for CLEAR SCANS. I've said it before, but scan time is VERY stressful. We are always a phone call away from bad news. (Plus scan day is a super stress day at my work, as we are being inspected...yup, teachers get inspections too!)

Okay...that's about it. Unless something of note happens between now and then I will let you know about scans as soon as I know!

Thanks for thinking about us.
