A change in plan

We have just received confirmation (well, 99%) that Logan does not have Ewing's Sarcoma.  He actually has a type of lymphoma (Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma I think).  This was determined by the pathologist at Waikato Hospital and will be confirmed here.  This cancer is easier to treat with a much larger chance of a complete cure.  So very good news. It also means that we will not be taking part in the clinical trial so we will not need to stay or come back in 6 months. Tomorrow Logan will have a PET scan and X-ray to complete/confirm the diagnosis.
Flights are being organised as I type to get us on a plane home this weekend.  Logan is hoping that we will be able to work in a trip into Washington DC to visit the Smithsonian but we won't know if that is possible until we know the flight times.
