It looks like ultrasound with contrast results show the cancer has spread to her organs.  


They say the images didn't "enhance" like fungus or abscesses do (the masses in question did not light up when contrast was administered).  So while they can't give us a 100% guarantee, all teams are confident in saying this is all tumor / swollen liver due to tumor.  She can not get the good CT scan because of her poor organ function right now, but they can see what they believe to be cancer all over her liver, bowels, and abdomen.  January's CT scan showed nothing on her organs, so all of this has appeared since the new chemo started.


Our oncologist will review everything and talk to us tomorrow... I'm sure to just tell us nothing is working.  


Julia was unresponsive for pretty much all of January, and then recently she's started to come back.  We get obvious "dada"'s every day, and she is moving her eye better to find the iPad when it's not right in front of her.  She found Reed and smiled at him during trach care this morning - all the nurses saw it.  And when Reed just say he was going to help with her "junkies" (drool, in this case), he turned on the suction machine and she shook her head no and clamped her mouth shut.


How does this happen when she's getting worse so quickly?  I guess it's possible December's brain bleed is just reabsorbing, allowing her to show this slight improvement.  


So, pretty awful news.  I do not believe there any coming back from this.  Her abdomen is very tight.  There is little room to expand, but the tumors are growing rapidly.  At least they are confident they can handle the pain aspect of anything that is to come.  We will know more tomorrow after we talk to oncology.

Gabriel has just started to play pretend.  And Charlene got a video today of him holding up a little white drawer organizer saying "Julia's bed".  I guess that's going to be his only memory of his big sister... bald and lying in a hospital bed.

Just sending you lots of love. What awful news. Julia is such a sweet child, and it is obvious to me that she knows how much she is loved by her family. Thank you for keeping all of us informed through these horrible days even though we are just internet strangers - I check daily and pray for you all.

I am praying for Julia, your little warrior, for you and your family.

You have been so kind to allow us to even know Julia and Gabriel, yourself and Reed. I want to hug you as one mom would to another. I would say we need to pray. Pray like never before.

Seeing how you fight for Julia shows incredible love and Julia knows how loved she is. I even enjoy hearing that she is still sassy with her no and closed mouth for the suction.. Lol. She is a spitfire. What strength she shows us all on this journey of hers.

I pray that God move on behalf of Julia and remove all the cancer from her body …
