The testing went well, and the results were what we hoped for.  The lesions on the right side do not appear to be pheochromocytomas!  They think that they are neurofibromas, benign. The surgeon and endocrinologist have been reviewing my case and films with doctors from all over the country and they all seem to agree!  So, we are back to a minimally invasive surgery scheduled for June 18th.  My pre-op appt is June 2nd, and my medications for surgery will be switched on June 9th.

In the meantime, Jess is finishing up her softball season, and Jake is enjoying baseball.  Danny is enjoying his intamural flag football.

We are gearing up for our annual camping trip over Memorial Day weekend and are glad thag we are able to make the trip!

I have been doing well these past two weeks the switch in meds.  My blood pressure and heart rate are stable and I actually have more energy on the Inderal than I did on the Labatolol.  Today I had the injection for the test and tomorrow and Thursday will go back for the scans.  They are full body scans and will take 60-90 minutes each day.  It is possible that I will have to go back on Friday for more pictures.  Otherwise we are hanging in there and just waiting to move forward!  We had a great Spring Break...just stayed homebound and went to some local baseball games!  Jess had a lot going on with softball and spent a lot of time with friends as well.  Jake and Dan both got to see friends over the break as well.  Did a little shopping for the boys as well!
