Today is one week from Joel’s next MRI. This one will definitely be a full brain and spine scan. (This is the longest we’ve gone since Joel’s diagnosis between brain scans.) Joel’s last spine MRI was just six weeks ago, (it showed the tumor in Joel’s spine was about half as big as before) this scan should show the final results of the radiation.
Joel walked so quickly and fluidly this week, it was wonderful.

    Hi Amy and Ryan,

    I’m Michael Paul’s mom. Michael was telling his dad and me about you all and Joel. I want you to know how much I admire your courage in the face of this frightening situation. Our little church is praying for Joel and your entire family.

    Hang in there!

    Mary Anne Paul
