So we FINALLY got THE call from the doctor tonight with the last pathology report. Delainey has Synovial Cell Sarcoma. Believe it or not I have yet to look it up, but from what the doctor says...it is TYPICALLY not an aggressive type of cancer. AMEN! It TYPICALLY only requires REMOVAL! Which means, it normally does not spread, it is normally just the bump that is there and that is it.
Sarcomas themselves are "rare" in comparison to the other types and especially rare in children. So there is not a ton of literature/research in peds cases like you might find in other cancers.
BUT the TYPICAL treatment protocol in most of these cases is surgery only to removal the tumor.
I know I have a lot of capitalized TYPICALs and TYPICALLYs because that is what the doc kept saying. There's stil no guarantee that chemo and radiation are completely out of the picture yet. BUT the odds are in our favor that MY BABY will not need them.
We will know more after her scans come back late afternoon/early evening tomorrow. But we are very hopeful and will be praying that the scans are clear.
At this point we are celebrating the good news that we have, and are praying for more good news tomorrow. We will keep everyone updated as this goes on.
We are very blessed with an amazing support system, amazing children and an especially amazing baby girl who has taught me more in her short 16 months than I ever would've imagined. I see God when I look at her face. Every laugh, smile, hug, or slobbery kiss that she gives, I see God. I see what amazing things He creates, protects, loves and heals. We are honored that God chose us to be her parents.
Thank you all for your prayers, we would be honored if you would continue those for our girl.
