Positive

The PET Scan came back positive. This could mean that either she does have the PTLD or that she has a fungus that is causing inflamation.

She getting her bronch right now. Please, if you read this in the next several minutes, pray that the doctor is able to get a few good samples of her lungs from the areas showing the growths. If not, she'll need to be scheduled for a biopsy surgery, which will mean another trip to the OR, general anesthesia and a chest tube, all of which Tricia really wants to avoid.

I'll let you know more later.

Laurel said...

Praying for you here in Pennsylvania.

I have to tell you - as I was making the decision to leave a comment here on your blog, a thought hit me in that way that certain thoughts *hit*.

God would not have brought you, Tricia and Gwyneth this far and through this much to let a few little letters (PTLD) stand in the way of many happy years together. This is just a bump in the road... a pothole, if you will (we know all about those up here in PA!). You will come through this, like you have so many other things.

Love and prayers.

Mandy said...

Hi -- I've never commented on something like this before, but I want you to know that my husband had a double-lung transplant in 2001 for CF, he had EBV related PTLD in 2005 and was successfully treated with Rituximab, a treatment that he tolerated really well, that worked great, and that worked right away. He's still going strong (after a bout with Hodgkin's lymphoma that required traditional chemo, which was really, really hard on him) and our son will be 1 year old this month. Reading your posts brings back to me the intensity of these types of times -- I'm holding you in my thoughts and hoping for quick, clear answers and good treatment options.

Leslie said...

Praying for you guys and wisdom for the doctors!
