Yesterday I received a call from the surgeon regarding the MRI I had last Wednesday. It seems that this test showed a second lesion on the right side...this one in the abdominal area. The test was not conclusive enough to say that these lesions were pheos. They could possibly be neurofibromas which are typically benign tumors associated with Neurofibromatosis. Typically they grow on or under the surface of the skin, but sometimes develop internally. I will have to have another test done to determine whether or not these are pheos. There is a nuclear scan called a MIBG that specifically diagnosis pheos. I am now waiting to hear when this test will be done. If these lesions turn out not to be pheo, then we must decide how to proceed with them...leave them alone or take them out and analyze them.
On a fun note, we spent part of the weekend with Rob's cousin. We took a drive up to the mountains and showed him that part of this beautiful state. It was a fun day.
Jess had her first softball game Monday afternoon...unfortunately they did not win! She still had fun anyway.
