I received this email from a church member on Feb.12/09/Thurs., who is still in contact with this young boy he has had a brain tumor when he was in grade school and returned again in High school. He asked for Prayer request…This is a letter from the boy’s parents…I removed the names for privacy
This afternoon, we met with Dr., Young boys neurosurgeon, at the hospital regarding the young boys vision issues; dilated pupils and downward deviation of the eyes. He is sure, based on the CT Scan from Tuesday and his examination today, that young boys vision issues are a result of the original, existing tumor and not because of the satellite tumor in the 3rd ventricle. Enlargement of the satellite tumor could cause hydrocephalus– built up fluid pressure on the brain. At this point, hydrocephalus is the most serious concern. Tomorrow at 2:30, we will meet with Dr. - the pediatric oncologist to find out the decisions that will be made during a teleconference tomorrow amongst all Doctors concerned.
Please Pray for this young boy, his family, friends, the doctors, nurses, all in the hospital, and classmates, etc.
