Renee, thanks so much for responding. I'm sorry to hear of your own battle. This is becoming all too common.
The ATRT (atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour) which my niece has-has a very poor prognosis unfortunately but we are all praying for a miracle-she has just turned 3 and that can raise the survival rate a bit as compared to those kids under 3. Her dr's give her a 50/50 chance at the moment.
She had her surgery and is in ICU now, paralyzed on the right side but they are hoping this is temporary, they feel they got most of the tumour removed, the rest will be blasted with the radiation and followed up with chemo.
I am staying with touch with BIL and SIL as much as possible, phone calls and emails. I think a lot of people feel like hiding when news like this hits, so I am just trying to be around (as much as possible from such a great distance).
Best of luck to you Renee and I hope the last 6 months of chemo treatments fly by for you.
