Some good news!
Day 38: Oscar had his mid-way tests today (ultrasound and bone marrow), to gauge how well (or not) he is responding to the treatment. The unofficial report from the radiographer suggests it is good news! The "deposits" of neuroblastoma cells (tumors) were difficult to find on the ultrasound - the first ultrasound baseline tests had shown extensive tumors on his liver, spleen and lymph nodes in his abdomen! This is exactly the boost we need to prepare for the second half of this induction stage of chemotherapy. Go Oscar!!!
