A few hours ago we were finally able to talk to the Hematologist/Oncologist regarding any reports that they may have.

At that point all we knew was that Autumn most likely had a stage three Wilm's tumor (tumor of the kidney).  After all of the initial reports, it seems to be that indeed, that is what they removed two days ago.

So, what does all of this mean?

Autumn will have to undergo about 2-3 weeks of radiation, each session takes about 20-30 minutes and we will have to do this everyday.  She will also have to go through chemotherapy treatments involving three types of drugs once a week for the next 10 weeks and then every 3 weeks for about 3.5 months.

We are so thankful that she does not have to undergo anymore than this, as this will be overwhelming enough for such a little body!

She is a strong little girl as most of you have already noted!  :)  We have so appreciated all of your love and support and care that all of you have given to her over the past 2 days, thank you!!!

Life is precious.
