dancing ethan

The boy had the last part of his bone scan this morning. He ate all his breakfast and was dancing to the wiggles and Hi5 afterwards. Enough to say he can go home, which he did at lunchtime. Jo spoke to the surgeon and oncologist about a possible link to the genetic problem Ethan has (22q11 deletion). They will be looking into this.

The bone and brain scans are to look for secondary tumors. We do not know the results yet but the surgeon said he would have heard something by now if there was a problem

During yesterdays bone scan Ethan was held still by a big velcro belt. Hi5 helped to distract him, although the TV was a bit hard to see from his position
