Well they weren't the results we were hoping for. They told us the biopsy showed a cancereous sarcoma, related to vaccines, forgive this all sounds confusing to me. They said the margins they got were good but they may or may not have gotten it all. As they like a margin of 2 and were only able to get 1.something. They told us if it were to come back it would be months and the mass would just grow, or be little masses. They gave us some options, which would include radiation, and chemo. we just think we have put him through alot at this point. He will be 13 in January and we feel rather then him get sick or possibly die as a result of chemo and radiation, along with the cost of it being in the thousands. We are just going to see how things go along and just keep him happy, we are hoping that like when back in 2004 with the squamous cell carcinoma he had that he will beat this as well. So I will keep you posted. I am just trying to convince myself and my daughter ( shes 16), that this is the best thing to do for him. But she is just saying she doesn't want him to die, neither do I but I can't see putting him through more, for something that may be incurable. I am just so torn. Any opinons would be greatly apprecitated. I guess for now I will just pray for the best., and just try to make his time happy while he is here. Thanks inadvance.
