Clear Scans

I apologize for not writing in a few days. In this day of social media, I posted the results on Facebook and failed to post here. Anyway, Blake's MRI was clear. He continues to be cancer free which is always a blessing beyond belief. His oncologist suggested that we could go to every 6 month scans if we were ready--which we are not. We all compromised with continuing the scans every 4 months instead of every 3. 

Blake's cataract surgery also went well. He has a followup appointment next week. There is still a little transition with his vision, but he is already seeing better. He should have his other eye fixed in several weeks. Thanks again for all of your support and mainly your prayers!

Mike and Connie, Blake continues to be in my daily prayers. I share your joy and thank God for the clear MRI. I was not ready to go to 6 month MRIs for a long time, and compromised with the same physicican and did 4 months too. :)
I wanted to let you know that if Blake is feeling up to joining Makenzie at the car wash for a cure she would LOVE to have him (and your family) come and help wash cars, or pass out flyers to the customers. I can't think of a better person to educate people about pediatric brain tumors than your Super Hero!
It is on Saturday, May 2nd at Burger King in Mt Juliet again. Connie, I will contact you to talk about this in more detail.
Hugs and prayers from my family yours,
Kathleen Matthews
