I just heard from UCLA that the Lymphangiogram will take place tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9am. The rarity of this procedure is underscored by the effort it has taken to get doctors, techs, facilities and materials together. Again, I am moved by the lengths to which people go for our son. A few people with many important things to do have been doggedly persistent, and we are especially grateful to Dr. Mary Mazel and Dr. Robert Kelly, who spent a good bit of their weekend tracking things down by phone and e-mail. Again, this is a diagnostic tool that may help the team locate the source of the lymphatic fluid that keeps coming into Rudy’s pleural cavity. Of course, it may reveal nothing, but we would rather wait and have some information before another surgical procedure.
So, please pray for this procedure tomorrow; that it would give the team a clear picture of what’s going on with Rudy so that it can be quickly and easily addressed.
