Parker Jensen's parents released a statement today, in response to the most recent medical reports from St. Luke's Mountain States Tumor Institute, and the information released by the guardian ad litem yesterday.

The Parkers say they are currently reviewing the latest findings and considering treatment options.

In their statement, the Jensen's ask for "the right and the time to make these decisions on our own, without the fear of immediate arrest or Parker's forced removal from our family.

"As Parker's parents we still have very serious concerns about the possibility of any chemotherapy treatment for Parker... however that does not mean that we are not willing to continue to monitor Parker's condition and seek other forms of treatment....

"We also regret that one of the other parties in this case, we feel, violated our patient privacy rights by releasing Parker's medical reports to the media."

The doctor who most recently examined Parker, and recommended chemotherapy has apparently quit the case. He will remain on to help the Jensens find another doctor.

He also plans to meet next week with the Jensens and DCFS to get final test results and discuss the recommended course of treatment for Parker.
