Still no news...

So I got a call from the neuro-oncologists at Sloan today. They still have no final pathology report! :( They said that they were pretty sure we wouldn't have anything until the beginning of next week and if I didn't hear from them by Tuesday to call them. I hate waiting! I feel like I am so useless just sitting here letting this sh*t stay in him like this.

And to make matters worse, we were up last night from 12 - 5:30. Mike had some sort of stomach bug going on and was sick all night. I called into the Sloan Urgent Care phone line and they said it sounded like a virus and that I should just watch him and let them know how he was during the day. He has been ok. Lazier than usual but after only a few hours of sleep for the past 3 or 4 nights I can't blame him.

Katie started school on Monday. She has settled in really well so far! She has a playdate with her friend K tomorrow after school already too!! :) It is amazing how well she re-adjusted to being in that school. I mean, I know it helps that my mom works there so she does have that security but she just jumped right in getting to know the kids again. She is still really worried about Mike and is upset that I can't walk her to school and come pick her up every day so I have been trying to spend time with her in the evening when she gets home so she feels a little better about things. This weekend she is going to help paint my mom's dining room with mom and my sisters so that should be a fun project for her! :)

Anyway, that's it for today. I am going to sit with Mike on the couch until bedtime. Hope you are all doing well.

Hey there! Just wanted to let you know that I'm still praying!

I can't imagine how frustrating this is for you. I feel angry just reading it! All this technology in the world and they can't figure this out?!? I guess we can just hope they are trying to be 100% sure before they make a diagnosis. I just hope they get it done soon.

Hey Chrissie, It's been so long. I'm so sorry for what you and Mike are going through. I'm praying for you and please know that I also stay home and am not far away if there is ever anything that you need. By the way, Katie and Mike are adorable!!:)

Me again...I just read through Mikey's whole story. I would really like to do something to help you out. Would it be ok if I post about you on my blog, and figure out a way to start a fundraiser for you all? I can only imagine how hard y'all are having it right now, and I'd really like to help out in some way.
So, if you don't mind my getting involved, please email me!
