Well, so much for waiting. Mike made a phone call or two and and the pediatric oncologist (Dr. Bedros) talked to the pathologist. We saw Dr. Bedros tonight.
Blake has an osteogenic sarcoma. This is a type of bone cancer. He will undergo some tests tomorrow. Most importantly, they will do a chest CT to make sure the cancer hasn't moved there. If it hasn't, this cancer has a 90% cure rate!
Monday morning he will be admitted for 3 to 4 days of chemotherapy. He will get chemo for the next four months. Then they will operate and remove what's left. Followed by some more chemo.
In about a month, he joins me in the hair-free club. :-]
