Just a quick update on Jessica...She is still in the PICU, but her breathing has really improved and the 4th floor is looking very close! Today they had to reinsert the drainage tube into her cancerous lung. It was not draining the fluid and they are hoping that with it properly draining she will be more comfortable. They did another ct scan and although the tumor is responding to current treatments, due to the size of the tumor, the oncologist has decided to start treating Jessica with a more aggressive type of chemotherapy. The tumor in her lungs is the size of an orange. The main tumor in her kidney is much bigger. The type of chemotherapy they are adding is much stronger and will mean more frequent visits and monitoring at PCMC. Chandra and Cody are positive and feel really good about this new treatment. Cody and the kids are up from St.George and they were all thrilled to be reunited with their Mom, Jessica, and Jacob.
My sisters in St.George told me the fundraiser/yard sale was a huge success! They will be posting pictures soon. It is amazing to see all of the people coming together for sweet Jessica.
