Hannah also had a sleepover last night (which is why I'm so tired today.) Four girls over, finally asleep about 12:15 in the morning, so not that bad. We made our own pizzas, made cut and tie pillows, played lots of hide-and-seek and hamster games, and watched a movie. It was a busy night, but so much laughing and so much fun.
So that was the fun stuff. Now for the other stuff. Hannah's mole biopsy came back as dysplastic nevus (atypical mole.) It could be something or it could be nothing. Back to research mode. What I know so far is that it could be a gene mutation (called Gorlin's syndrome) which causes both atypical moles that could eventually be cancer AND medulloblastoma, or it could be a secondary reaction as a result of the radiation she received, or it could be something unrelated. We have a clinic appointment in a couple weeks, and I'll discuss it with her oncologist. We also have a follow up appointment with her dermatologist-one more doctor to add to the mix-in six weeks to ensure she got the entire mole out and there is no repigmentation of the area.
If I had to make a guess, I would guess option #2, secondary issues resulting from the spinal radiation. The mole was in the field of radiation on her back. Will keep you informed as we progress through this one!
Enjoy your weekend,
