The Edge of Elfland
Hudson, New Hampshire
I have wonderful news. Today my son went in for what was meant to be his final MRI. For those of you who don’t know his story, at 8 weeks old one my twin sons was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a kind of childhood cancer. After two rounds of chemotherapy and a flight back to the United States (all of this having taken place in England during my PhD) we were told that his tumor had shrunk and he could be considered cancer free.
Since that fateful day in October of 2014 Edwyn has continued to have urine tests and regular MRIs to check if any cancer showed up in his urine stream or if the tumor had begun growing again. Every time Edwyn had to go back to the hospital, we would be worried. What if this time they said it was growing again? What if it had spread? Once we had just such a scare. An overfull bladder and had made it appear as though the tumor were bigger. That was terrifying.
