Thank You For Your Prayers My Son’s Tumor Has Shrunk March 24, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, awesomeness, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, thanksgiving.
There were a range of options of what might come out of my son’s follow-up MRI for the brain tumor discovered after he had a massive seizure 6 weeks ago, and aside from a total miracle (the tumor being completely gone) we got about the best possible option – the tumor is smaller and certainly appears both benign and stable. The shrinkage was probably due to swelling associated with the original seizure going away, but that means this tumor isn’t aggressive and isn’t growing at any appreciable rate.
So now we’ll just keep on keepin’ on, my son will get MRIs at three month intervals now and he’ll continue on the Keppra anti-seizure medication. He’s been doing awesome, his reading has gotten at least back to baseline and in fact is probably surpassed where he was before the seizure. It was a blessed day all around. I thank all of you so much for your prayers and ask if you would continue them, since this is still a serious situation and eventual surgery remains a strong possibility. But the longer that can be put off the better, and if prayer we hope it will never be needed.
Thank you all again, from the bottom of my heart, from a terrible shock and of course worry this has turned out just about as best as could have been imagined. And we of course thank God that He has seen fit to insure that my son is at least stable and that his health can be pretty easily managed so we may – I pray – enjoy our time together for many years to come.
