Brain Surgery

Thank you all for the many prayers that continue to keep John uplifted!  The Gamma Knife surgery couldn't have gone better!  Tumor was 2cm, totally spherical and NO OTHER TUMORS were located!  We were at the hospital at 6:15 am and left at 11:30!! WOW! The team of doctors, physicists and nurses/staff were phenomenal!  Even Dr. Cohen stopped in to see John when it was over.  REST is on order now.  10 days of steroids and a repeat MRI in a month.  Chemo #41 this Wednesday.  He keeps up the fight.  When we asked for a little break after the Gamma Knife Dr. Cohen said, "sorry, you have to keep fighting, soldier!"

The quote for yesterday on our inspirational calendar (thanks, Cathy R!) was this yesterday:  "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him." Romans 15:13

We hope you are all doing well and enjoying every minute of every day!  XO

    Awesome update, so Glad the surgery went well for John D. and the Family... As we sang in Church on Sunday, "Thanks Be to God..." Keep up the fight, the faith and hope. Rest up, Good luck with round #41, I am sure we will see you up and around very soon. Ali once said, “Don’t count the days; make the days count.” John D. is living proof of that, keep it up my friend... I look forward to another year of "Andrew the Bringer" in the Living Last Supper @ Nativity. Continued Prayers, The Sullivan Family
