This week will be a busy week of tests & scans. Yesterday Logan had a bone marrow biopsy. Today break at home. Tomorrow CT Scan. Thursday MIBG scan and meeting with Dr. Julie Park to go over results and what to do next…..
What to do next….
- If they see that the current treatment is actually causing the cancer to “go away” we will actually continue treatment another two cycles. They do not anticipate this as the purpose was to slow down advancement.
- If 1 does not happen Logan will go off of experiment pills. He will then have an appointment in the next couple weeks to harvest some T cells & stem cells to prepare for another experimental through the Ben Towne Foundation. Basically they will re-program his cells and make them super cells to fight the cancer. Watch amazing video explaining this here.
- While his T cells are being reprogrammed he will be doing another experimental treatment. This is the MIBG treatment I mentioned in an earlier post where he will be put in a lead room for 5-7 days and be treated with radioactive medicine. This is now schedule to start late November.
Logan continues to be our hero…he takes it all in stride. Today in fact his school tutor (amazing teacher at Kalles Junior high, Billy Lane) comes over for the first time to go over school projects…..so technically today is first day of 8th grade for Logan!
