So there it is............

The amatuer reading of the MIBG scan is that the head is worse and there are a variety of new spots. This confirms what we have suspected for a few days. Next we will get with Maris and talk game plan. This photo was snapped of the computer screen by Angela on her cell phone. The bright areas on the top of Christi's head is disease. The shoulder, knees, and pelvis is all disease. There is normal uptake in the abdomen and salivory glands so I can not be sure what is going on there. That will key to understanding our predicament. Sounds like there may be extensive sinus involvement. I will post when there is a difinative plan in place.

Dear Thomas Team:

I know there is nothing I can say to make anything better, but please know that I am thinking of you and praying for you at all times and in all places. You are all such an inspiration.

In this difficult time, please know you are not alone.

7:20 in CA means 10:20 in Philly. Angela is waiting to meet with the DR. & Shayne, you & Shayla must feel so helpless being so far away.

My candle is still lit for Christi (and for all of you)hooping that there can be some good news. Part of me wonders if we all wouldn't do better with the innocence of a child.....yes Shayla, Easter IS coming and it IS all about hope!!

Love & Hiugs from CA.

As a fellow NB parent my heart droped to see that MIBG scan.

Can I just say how brave you both are? I know people say that to you (because I get it too) but I want to say it from a NB parent to another because the way you are facing this and dealing with Christi and Shayla is inspiring to me and I am definately taking notes.

Oh Angela and Shayne, How I am praying for you today. The scans look awful. I know you are so scared. I pray that Christi is not scared. I still pray for healing too. I will pray non stop today as you are constantly on my mind.

Oh, dear Thomas Family,
I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said. I pray in agreement with the other bloggers, and pray that God will give you all His peace that passeth all understanding, and strength that this world cannot comprehend. Remember, you are never alone. God is with you.

Wishing I could do something to help but not knowing what. IF I can do anything, please let me know.

With you in heart, mind and spirit.

Like the others above, i have a lump in my throat, tears in my eyes, and a broken heart for your beautiful family. Christi is just amazing. I have been reading about her on her site for about a year. The picture on her main site of her at dance class a few days ago is beautiful. I hope she doesnt suffer too much pain. I will pray for her complete healing. My jaw dropped looking at her scan. I have been reading about several different children for 1.5 years. They always mention the scan but this is the first time i've seen one. That is scarey. Oh Christi, i hope you know we are all praying hard for you sweetie.

Dear Thomas Team,
I "met" Christi through her website and some staff here at Columbus Children's where I am a nurse. I have kept up your BATTLE for over 2 years now and today I am in tears. My heart breaks!!! You have ALL fought so valiantly. You are in MY PRAYERS!! May the PEACE that passes ALL understanding be with your family today.
Maria Hitchcock
