After Chloe's well-child check on Tuesday, her pediatrician requested an ultrasound to check her "swollen abdomen."
Chloe had that ultrasound at 8am this morning and around 11, her pediatrician called to say that the ultrasound had confirmed that there was a mass near Chloe's left kidney. She continued to say that she had already spoken to an oncologist at DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids and that they would be expecting Chloe within the coming hours to admit her and we should plan to stay a week, maybe two. I had to ask her to repeat what she had told me as I couldn't believe what I was hearing.
What we know right now, a CT scan has shown that there is a mass in her left kidney, about the size of an adult fist. She will have further tests in the morning and then surgery either tomorrow or Saturday to remove the mass. The next steps will be determined after that.
Please pray for Chloe, her doctors, us, and Martha and Henri. We'll write more when we know more.
