Friday Delaney had a CAT scan to mirror the MRI that was taken this past week. This is done so they can do the focal radiation and it can be extremely accurate on the location. While she was sedated Friday they made a mesh mask of her face so her head will be stable and there is no movement. This is important so while she is sedated her head will not move and cause the focal radiation to drift. Delaney’s doctors have set up a treatment plan so that she is ready to go on Monday March 24th and it will last for 5 ½ weeks with daily trips to Oakland. Delaney is still not eating on her own, we are hoping she will soon, but that may not start until after focal radiation. Delaney has been very active and is trying to do more which is fantastic but it does keep Mommy and Daddy on their toes. Delaney is playing more and loves to be outside but we still need to be extremely cautious of germs and virus so her time is limited outside. This is not something parents usually have to tell their 2 ½ year old but we must limit outside contact to give her the best health possible right now. Delaney is sleeping through out the night and still getting her nightly feeds. She is in very great spirits and happy and we are all trying to enjoy this upcoming week at home before we start the daily trips to OAK next Monday.
Thank you for all your love, support, and prayers.
