Last Saturday, January 30,2010, in the evening I noticed that Spencer's right pupil was significantly smaller than his left, and the right eyelid was droopy. I didn't feel like I needed to rush him the emergency room that night but I did not feel good about it at all. I knew that he had a dr.'s appt set up for Monday for a checkup on his headaches so I decided to wait until then. After a long day and a long wait at the dr.'s office our wonderful pediatrician took one look at his eye and told me to take him straight to the Primary Children's Hospital emergency room. I dropped very hungry and tired Gavin and Isabelle off to Nate and took Spencer in. On our way we stopped at Carls Jr. and got a bacon western cheeseburger and some onion rings, his favorite. Everyone in the ER was wonderful and we didn't wait long to talk to dr.s and nurses and get him in for a CT scan. When the ER doctor came in and explained the CT scan it was obvious from the pictures of the tumor. I have always thought that if something like this ever happened to me that I would stop functioning. It is amazing what you can get through. I didn't have another option for my son, than to be strong and brave. It is true that the Lord will not give you something that you cannot get through. There have been some low times so far but for the majority of the time there has been peace, lots of peace. We can feel your prayers surrounding our family and piercing our souls. The day after the ER we headed back up to Primary Children's Hospital to meet with our ENT Dr. Grimmer. He has been wonderful. He looked over the CT scans and believed the tumor to be a Rhabdomyosarcoma. We waited an emotional hour while Spencer soldiered through an MRI. MRI results yesterday confirmed the Rhabdomyosarcoma. Today we wait through a gruesome 2-3 hour invasive biopsy which will confirm the type of cells involved in the mutation, which will tell us the types of treatment that we will have to undergo as a family. We will post pictures and updates and physically and emotionally able. We love you and are thankful for all of your prayers and fasting.
