A Sort-of update

Dr. Piatt, Jack’s neurosurgeon, stopped by.  He used the words “benign” and “non-malignant” when describing the initial information that we have on the tumor.  All signs are pointing to a big, very scary surgery on Thursday.  However, the final pathology results are not yet in, and we are waiting for Dr. Walter, the oncology doctor, to stop by. I am really hoping for a final diagnosis today, but initial impressions are encouraging…

    That’s really encouraging news, Meg. Hope the surgery goes well on Thursday. That little guy has plenty of support.

  2. Hi Meg and family, I totally agree with Denise and couldn’t have said it any better! I have asked everyone I know to pray for you all and to send all the love, strength, light, courage and positive thinking they possibly can! People who don’t know you and your family are pulling for you with all they have. That is powerful and amazing and I wish I could show you just how many of my friends and family are pitching it to help you all get through this!

    Benign is a beautiful word in our medical field! Yay, Jack! We are all rooting for him and prayers to all of you and family on this difficult journey. Keep fighting tough guy! Much love from all of us.

  7. WHAT?!?! Oh my God, he actually uttered the words “benign” and non-malignant?” If that is the way it turns out, how fantastic! I know, big scary surgery hurdle still to be crossed, but for it to not be cancerous would be beyond wonderful. So – still hedging, but looking more optimistic. I’ll take it!
