Update - 7/23

Campbell had her appointment yesterday with the neurologist and the pediatric oncologist at Morristown Memorial. They all acknowledged that we are not imagining the limp and the neurologist noted some deficiencies on her left side in one of the tests that could be attributed to where her tumor was located.

They would like to move her next MRI up a few weeks (she was scheduled to have her next imaging in September) and include both her brain and spine. If she started to exhibit additional symptoms, they would admit her and have it done immediately but we are hoping that won't happen.

For now, she continues to "gallop" around the house and act like herself.

With Love,

Update - 7/21

Campbell is still doing well, though we have noticed some changes since her last appointment in Boston. She has developed a slight limp which we were concerned enough with to take her to the pediatrician yesterday morning. While we were there, we noticed that she was unable to support her weight on her toes which concerned us just a little more.

They suggested that we get a physical therapy evaluation as well as perhaps an appointment with a local neurologist. We also sent off some emails to the various specialists in Boston to see if this may be a side effect of radiation and/or surgery and/or meningitis. Thus far, it does not sound as though it would be due to the radiation but we haven't heard back from the others.

Needless to say, we are a little on edge right now but are hopeful that this is just a normal bump in the road rather than something more sinister...your prayers would once again be appreciated.

With Love,

Greg, Robin, Caitlin, Caroline and Campbell
