Thank You For Your Prayers My Son’s Tumor Has Shrunk March 24, 2017

Posted 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.

Wonderful news. I pray that his health continues to improve.

Yeah this has really been amazing. There are scores and maybe hundreds of people praying for my son.

THAT is why we have had the wonderful results we’ve had so far. I will be forever in everyone’s debt.

I will continue praying to Pope Saint John Paul II who obtained a complete and sudden cure of a cancerous brain tumor in a child after doctors had given her up as hopeless..this while JP ll was still alive.

Fantastic news! So happy to hear. You kind of had me worried without an answer yesterday but it’s amazing now knowing prayers have been answered. I know he isn’t completely out of the woods yet but you must be feeling pretty good. Our prayers will continue for you all.

Thank you, Lord, for prayers answered!
Will continue to pray for you, Mrs. T and the family.

Hilary White was discussing with Steve Skojec that many orthodox bloggers seem to be undergoing intense trials at this time. So glad that yours looks better, b/c we all love you and he is such a great little boy…
