Let the consultations begin!
February 9, 2012
We want to give you a quick update. Today, we met with the radiologist to hear about some of the up and downsides of doing radiation therapy in Madeleine's situation. They are not yet making a recommendation about radiation in her case because more test results and discussions between specialists are in process. In fact, a group of Kaiser specialists will be meeting tomorrow regarding her particular case. These doctors, in turn, are also in frequent contact with the melanoma specialist from UCSF whom we met with last month (Dr. Adil Daud).
Madeleine is continuing to heal from the surgery and gain strength. She is pretty much back to school, and has even been in the pool a few times this week! That being said, she still has some recovering to do, but is well on her way.
We really appreciate your continued prayers for her and for wisdom for her doctors (and us) during these coming days of consultations and decisions. Thanks everyone!
