 Tue. 25 July, 2006  Today is the 874rd day on Billy's transplant calendar.
1,401 day's, living in the "World of cancer".

Welcome back to Billy's Page, we hope this update finds you all well. Billy began the CT scan process this morning at 8am. He had 3 ounces of "contrast" liquid mixed with 48 ounces of apple juice, to drink before the scan was to be done at 11:30am. Billy met the deadline, another IV was inserted in his arm to administer another contrast and the scan was done at 1:00pm. Billy's transplant Dr., Dr. Petrovic met with us as the scan was being done, and told us that she was in consult with Dr. Barbosa (head of Oncology). She assured us, that NO conclusions will be made until all diagnosis' is complete. She wasn't very convincing (sorry Dr. P.)

We received "the call" from Dr. Barbosa around 4:00pm confirming 2 prominent spots (lesions) on Billy's Liver, and that he will call us before 11:00am tomorrow to arrange further testing. Dr. Barbosa is not ruling anything out, and we are to "prepare for the worst, and hope and Pray for the best". Billy will have another MRI done, as well as a Needle Biopsy done of his liver. This will all be done tomorrow, as his Dr.'s are not wasting any time. We also told Billy what was going on, and he is going to do his best to deal with it, as he has always dealt with it. Alicia and I both know, that deep inside, he was devastated.

Thank you ALL, for your continued support, thought's, and Prayer's. We can't do this "again" without you.
Please understand how hard it is for me to talk about this (again), and please know that I will do the best I can to update you as to Billy's condition. We are having a tough time of it..........

 Mon. 24 July, 2006  Today is the 873rd day on Billy's transplant calendar.
1,400 day's, living in the "World of cancer".

click here for larger viewWe hope this update finds you all well. We took Billy to the Hospital this morning to have his scheduled CT scan, and total body Bone scan (click photo). An IV was inserted into Billy's arm, and contrast was administered, for the scans. Billy left the Hospital at 1:44pm, and the phone rang at 2:24pm; Forty five minutes later. Alicia answered the phone, and the look on her face said it all. It was the very same look that she had when we received the phone call from Billy's Pediatrician saying that Billy had a tumor in his right femur. Alicia hung up the phone and started to cry; I knew, without asking, what was said. The head of the Oncology Dept. (Dr. Barbosa) was the one who called, he said that Billy's CT scan showed 2 "questionable spots" on his liver; and that we need to have a CT scan done of the liver to see what the "questionable spots" are. Alicia and I sat down, held each other, and cried; as we did almost 4 years ago when Billy was diagnosed with Ewings sarcoma.

How much more can we take? Why did we spend this weekend looking at (copying to DVD) old VHS tapes of Billy growing up? Why, after all these years, did Billy finally sit down and watch with them us? Why did we have a "Normal" weekend for once, only to be crushed by news like this?

Billy will start to take a liquid contrast, by mouth, starting tomorrow morning at 8:00, 10:00, and the final dose at the Hospital at 11:00am. He will have another CT scan of his Liver and abdomen done at 11:30am tomorrow.

I will do my very best to update Billy's Page tomorrow. We are trying to remain positive. Please send us your positive energy, thought's, and Prayer's.

Dr letson......Alicia.....BillyWelcome back to Billy's Page, we hope this update finds you all well. {click photo for larger version} Today turned out to be a Loooooong day at the Hospital. We arrived at the Hospital on schedule, 10:45am, and began the admission process. We settled into our pre-op room around noon, Billy was hooked up to his anti-biotics (ANCEF), around 1PM; and he was in surgery around 2:15pm. Dr. Letson requested anti-biotics 1 hour before surgery to help fight any infection's that might show their ugly face. Billy's surgery went very well, and there were no complications associated with the procedure. If you remember, after Billy last lengthening, Billy was in some discomfort (pain), although no infection(s) was ever found.

Dr. Letson was able to lengthen Billy's leg another 1 1/2cm (3/4in), which makes his legs just about the same length again. Billy is really starting to grow now, and Dr. Letson expects to lengthen Billy's leg about every other month (or so). Billy has rebounded fairly quickly after the previous 3 lengthening's, so, Dr. Letson was happy to be able to "stretch" Billy's leg a bit more than before.

Billy will be on oral anti-biotics for about 10 days, and will take a break from PT for a week.

Thank you ALL, for your continued Support, Thought's, and Prayer's......

 Tue. HAPPY 4th of July, 2006  Today is the 853rd day on Billy's transplant calendar.
1,380 day's, living in the "World of cancer".

Group Photo camp 2006 We hope this update finds you well. Billy continue's to "Amaze" all those associated with his cancer treatment(s). Billy was cleared to attend Camp again this year, as you all know, and the photo to the right {click to see a larger version} is a Group Photo of the "Cancer Kids" from the Pinellas County area who headed out to Camp Boggy Creek yesterday morning, for a week of Fun and R&R!

Alicia and I just stepped outside to see the Space Shuttle launch! Yes, we can see it from Our house here in St. Pete!, and what a Beautiful sight it was.

Billy will be home on the 8th, and he will get ready for his lengthening surgery scheduled for the 14th of this Month. Billy has really started to grow, and his left leg is now about an inch and a half longer than his right. Billy is able to bend his knee past 105°, so we hope that Dr. Letson can lengthen Billy's leg at least an inch.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

 Tue. 13 June. 2006  Today is the 832nd day on Billy's transplant calendar.
1,359 day's, living in the "World of cancer".

Billy and Alicia at the Beach Well, It looks as though Hurricane season is "officially" here! The past few days were pretty stormy as Tropical Storm Alberto moved west of us, and dumped at least 5 ins. of rain on us. We really did need the rain, but the wind is another story. Oh, the picture to the left! We were actually able to "follow through" on plans to spend the day at the Beach this past satuarday, and what a beautiful day it was *wink*.

Billy continue's to do quite well, although the 3 of us are a bit "under the weather" with cold symptoms. Billy continue's to have physical therapy 2 time's per week, and is pain free. His foot fracture has healed quite well, and he is able to walk without the use of crutches. Dr. Letson, Billy's surgeon, has scheduled Billy for surgery on the 14th of July for the next lengthening of his leg. Billy has really started to grow, and his right leg is now 3 cm shorter than his left. This schedule will allow Billy to enjoy his week at Camp Boggy Creek (July 2-8) without the discomfort from surgery.

Again, let me say that, "No News is Good News" when it pertains to Billy's Page. We are doing everything we can to "rejoin the ranks of the living", and the day's just seem to fly by lately. We still live in the "World of Cancer", and can't let down our guard; but we need to start living again. I think we are turning that corner, and we welcome what lies around it.

Please Pray for Billy........................and EVERY Child of Cancer
