So far it looks like the surgery is all that is needed for immediate treatment. No chemo or radiation in the immediated future!! Yea!  Pathology came back certain for Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) which, as I mentioned earlier, is extremely rare in children and typically affects those who are 50 to 70 years old. We are going to participate in clinical research project since it so rare. Will benefit other children who find themselves in same boat. Bone scan came out clean without evidence of metasteses (spread of cancer) and we just got back from CT of the head which haven't received results yet. We will have to follow up closely for the next few months and will keep close watch of her remaining kidney to make sure it is doing the job for two. It is looking like we will be going home today (Ari is very excited about the prospect) and will continue recuperating at home. I want to thank everyone who was with us (physically, in spirit, with prayers and
with love) during this ordeal. She is such an amazing little girl and I am blessed to be a part of her life and to have such wonderful friends and family to share her with. Thank you all again.  Janice
