Another update… 27 July 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — laughinglaura @ 22:52

We had a doctor’s appointment this week…  Megan is doing well.  She had her staples removed, we learned that her tumor was “very interesting” in that it presented as one type on the MRI, appeared to be a second type when they actually got to the tumor during surgery, and then the pathology reports showed that it was, indeed, the first type they suspected.  The PA said they had already discussed her case twice in the two weeks following the surgery, and they planned to discuss it again that afternoon.  Who knows?  Maybe she’ll wind up getting written up in a medical journal or something.

Anyway, as many of you are likely wondering, the tumor is grade II (this particular type of tumor does not exist as grade I) and is considered to be benign.  The plan to monitor things for 3-4 months through MRIs, and see how things progress.  Based on the results of the MRIs, they will make a decision whether/not to pursue radiation. 

Thanks for your continued prayers!

    Benign is a good word.

    God is good, and I know he will watch over all of you. But I am still praying, because it has worked already, and more prayers can only help.

    Medical Phenomenon is not my idea of 15 minutes of fame. Cool that her case might educate more doctors of the future, though.

    Glad that it was good news! Hopefully she can avoid the radiation! Hey maybe she can go down in history for because of her tumor!

    Benign. Such a wonderful word.

    Glad she’s recovering, but I’ll keep her in my thoughts for awhile yet.

  4. Ooh, I like hearing the word benign. A lot. Praying for all of you!
