Sorry I didn't post yesterday. My grandmas Internet wasn't working and we just got it back.

Good News!! Carter's CT scan was clear! The oncologist didn't think there was any new growth but they have to wait for radiology to write the report. The whole day went very smooth. They got an IV in the first try, they didn't heavily sedate him and the whole test only took 5 minutes, then he was back in my arms, and semi awake, (still a little drowsy). Carter was so good the whole day. He did very well not eating until after the scan, and never got very grumpy. All in all it was a very good and smooth day. Thank you for all your prayers. Now we are to every 3 month appointments!! We don't go back until October. I do have one thing we need to keep praying for. The oncologist said last month his urine levels that they check were a little elevated, so she wants to see how they are this month. If they are higher or not any lower, they may do more test.

We are having a great time in St. Louis with family. Carter is really warming up to everyone, which is nice that I don't have to hold him constantly. Tonight is my high school reunion! It will be interesting to see people I haven't seen in 10 years.

Again, thank you for all your prayers. I hope you have a great weekend.

Praise Our Lord that Carter remains Ned thats fantastic news! praying for vma/hma levels to come down - they are such sensitive tests, if food or vanilla can increase the readings. God Bless and prayers continue

Praising the Lord with you! [We can also relate to the crazy illness thing. . .Bo had the many scans because his skull was not growing and he had no soft spot, Hunter had severe excema as an infant and still struggles with it quite a bit - along with asthma, the boys have had moloscum (sp?) - a viral thing that causes bumps that have to go away on their own, Hunter had surgery on his eye as an infant, and Jeremy and I have had several quirky things that have intrigued the doctors. LOL . . .it's not always good to have something intriguing to a doctor.] We are rejoicing with you that you are one step farther past the worst of your battles - against the C-word. God is good!
