MRI results day

on Friday, 21 October 2011.

Laura had an MRI scan on tuesday, this scan was taken 6 weeks since the last scan (which was reported stable i.e no change in size)...

We were in for a big shock this time around!  We werent expecting things to be worse because Laura has felt really good in herself these past few weeks, we opened the report in anticipation.... the tumour has now shrunk in size!

Laura's brain tumour is made up of three cystic areas - one large and two small cysts - one of these cysts has completely "resolved" (dissapeared!).  The other two that are still left are slightly smaller than they were six weeks ago.

The tumour is also "enhancing" less - as an explanation - the white ring around Laura's tumour determines how active/agressive it is, so a strong thick white ring is bad news compared to a weak, broken, thin less bright ring around the tumour (which it now also has!)

All of these things are AMAZING news, we are so happy at this positive result!  It has given us all such a boost after such a long hard year, finally the tables seem to be starting to turn in Laura's battle!  Just in time for Laura's birthday in a few weeks - what an amazing birthday present!

Now the plan is for Laura to continue as normal and keep on with taking her antineoplaston medicine every day, she will have another scan in November so we can keep a regular track of what is going on.
