From Tyler’s Caringbridge page;
‘Cautiously optimistic’ would be the appropriate term

We heard back from Tyler’s nurse practioner that the bone marrow biopsy results came back, and showed that his cancer has not spread. We were told that Tyler’s type of cancer does not have stages, & is classified by whether it is localized, or if it is metastatic. So, after the bone marrow biopsy, CT scan, and nuclear medicine/bone scan, we now know that it is localized, which is very good news, and will help when it comes to local intervention.
Tyler’s return to school yesterday went very well. The kids were all eager to hear about what’s going on with Tyler, and had lots of great questions. He managed to stay the entire day, with only needing to rest for a bit. I spoke with him last night, and he was full of energy & excited for the rest of the week. All of the staff at his school have been very supportive, and we have had several parents already reach out. Being at school, and around is friends, is better than any medicine and will definitely help as we continue treatment.
I appreciate all your prayers more than any words I could manage to convey.
