Update: 10:45 pm

Missy just called, and she is on her way home. They did do testing to make sure there was nothing new causing the bleeding. Basically they ruled out issues of blood clots and pneumonia. The hospital explained that they do not believe she is in any eminent danger tonight.

They did do a CAT scan though, and it showed that her mass in her chest is increasing in size. They believe the bleeding may have just been caused by the growing mass, causing irritation on her lung. Additionally, because they did see the mass is growing, Doug and Missy believe that is confirming the need for more chemo treatment.

They will talk with their oncologist tomorrow to get the official confirmation on that.

Words on this blog can't even begin to express the thanks to everyone for their prayers! So many of you emailed or sent me a message in the past couple hours, and that was very encouraging! I know that Missy and Doug appreciate that beyond words as well!

*I apologize and need to correct myself...Missy's appointment with the oncologist will not be until next week. ~Jenn
