MRI Tomorrow: 1-23

From James:

Tomorrow (1-23) is going to be another three-month follow-up MRI at Johns Hopkins. The MRI will be at 8:30 a.m., with a follow-up appointment at 12:30. Before the previous three-month MRI, the tumor had shrunk 30%. We are praying that it has gotten another 30% smaller at least.

In other health news, a few days ago, So Young was diagnosed preliminarily with hypothyroidism. My theory is that the radiation itself or the tumor caused this, or both. Radiation to the head and brain tumors are known to be causes in other patients. The good news is that we now have a probable explanation for her tiredness, muscle weakness, stiff joints, and (more worrisome) tingling extremities of late. We’re having a follow-up and accompanying blood tests to confirm that diagnosis on Tuesday.

Thanks everybody for your continued prayer and support! We couldn’t make it without you.
