Danny thanks for the update. Keep strong and you would be amazed by the willpower of little ones. I used to see it everyday when I worked as a pediatric RPh. My prayers headed to your family.

I just saw this thread for the first time. I am praying now for peace and strength for your daughter, and for you and all of your family. I will also be praying for those medical hands that will be caring for your daughter, that will facilitate her being touched by His healing hand.

Great to hear that it's not cancerous and is one of the least bad of the many possibilities. Keep strong and we're all thinking about you.

Met with the neurosurgeon today. Surgery is a go. He feels pretty confident he can remove the entire mass. Which is great, because my wife and I really did not want radiation to be a part of this.

The only drawbacks are they don't know if her motor functions have been permanently damaged already. Also because of the location of it, they don't know for sure where her motor skills are controlled in her brain, if they are in front or behind the tumor. He showed everything to neurosurgeons from Boston children's hospital and New York, and they all agreed going in from the back is the best bet. So at least he thought to get their opinion and they're all agreed on the same approach. Also other possible complications are the always known; seizures, bleeding in the brain, and the unimaginable. Although those are lower risks, still stuff that is tough to even hear and think about.

Overall though, it was a really positive meeting, and we feel pretty good going forward. Still not looking forward to this 3-5 hours for the surgery. That is going to last an eternity.

The other negative is initial talks of potential surgery were for next week. Well between that time and now his surgery days filled up for the next 2 weeks. So we're scheduled for the 30th...

Tough news. I know it's bitter sweet because you have a plan if attack, but at the same time it's still a sensitive procedure from what you describe.

I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts & prayers.

Thanks so much for the update - it must be very hard, but sharing more detail means people can pray for more specific things, and for specific times etc. Praying for the best possible outcomes for you all...

Hang in there Danny. It'll be here and over before you know it and hopefully on the road to a full recovery. Saying prayers for your family and your doctors.

It sounds like there's a lot of positive outlook from the docs so that's always good. And definitely glad to see they checked in with others to make sure everything's being done in her best interests. Good luck to all of you, and definitely keep us updated!
