What's next?

Summer will have an MRI on November 3rd to see if the cyst has continued to grow. We'll see Dr. Browd a few hours later to get the results. We love the Wednesday morning MRIs because it's the same day as the Tumor Board meeting, so they can review her case the same day if something comes up on the scan.

In the meantime, we're having a nice break from hospital visits. Summer hasn't asked even once about going to the doctor, which surprises me a little since she talked about it quite a bit during treatment. She's getting to that age now where she actually internalizes the things we tell her - it's pretty amazing.

She does love her doctors kit, and frequently "checks" us with a stethoscope, looks for monkeys in our ears, takes our blood pressure and gives us "pokes" in the head. I haven't picked a Halloween costume for her yet, but maybe some tiny scrubs are in order.

So what do we do with all the free time now that we're not at the hospital three times a week? Potty training! Summer has been doing really well with it at home, and now we're working on going out without diapers too.

There's not much else to report. I'll post again after her MRI, unless something comes up between now and then!
