wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.

xray it is

Okay here's what we found out about the xray (if you are like "whoa, what x ray?  well, i briefly mention it in the post below this one, which actually came before this one...but ANYWAY, Ridge had another set of skeletal surveys yesterday just to check everything out).  Okay, so the "pneumatosis" crapola-alis is "stable" so no worries there.  the bone lucencies (i know i spelled it wrong)-- the bone LESIONS basically that we haven't been sure about this whole time- are they MLT? are they something else? who the heck knows?- anyway....deep breath here...they are notably BETTER.  why? how? the docs sure don't know. they sure weren't ever expecting that.  they were expecting nothing from them, or for them to get worse or cause fractures.  what what? they are BETTER?  hmmm?  how the heck?  oh, you and i both know how that happened.  one doc today said, "well...if they are related to the MLT as we believe the are...if THEY are lessening/getting better...perhaps that is happening to his other lesions.  We have no evidence that any of the other lesions are getting WORSE."  he didn't actually say it exactly like that i'm sure, but he did say something to that effect.  affect? i always get those words confused.  Anyway, I took that as good news.  of course it was delivered as neutral news, but i took it great.  also, they did a CBC for whatever random reason today even though he had one yesterday.  and well, his counts today were exactly the same as yesterday. super! 

so i don't know why RIDGE was so grouchy in light of all that good news.  Of course, maybe he was irritated like I was/am over stupid insurance/bills/ridiculousness that i don't want to accept.  doubt it.

Glad to hear that things are looking good.
