Murphy Update

Posted by Erich Trapp on December 14, 2010

Luke posted this blog today, Tuesday, December 14, 2010.

Murphy hasn’t had a CT scan yet. Dr Withrow wanted to do a thorough physical first and during the exam he palpated a nodule in his lymph node which they aspirated. It’s unlikely this type of cancer spreads to the lymph system but we want to be sure.

He also wanted to biopsy the tissue that Murphy sneezed up Sunday morning which can only be described as fleshy gray matter, pictured nearby. (Very sorry for the graphic nature of the photo but welcome to my world.) Is this the byproduct from radiation, debris from the destruction the cancer has caused in his nasal passage, or evidence of new tumor growth? We don’t know yet.

On the upside, Murphy’s blood work came back normal although he’s slightly anemic, probably due to his nose bleeds, and his chest films were clear.

A CT scan is scheduled for Wednesday morning while we’re awaiting the results of the lymph aspirate and the biopsy.

That’s all I got right now…
