Mike update 9.25.08

We are getting another MRI done tomorrow and are going in for another surgery to take out the temporary drain and replace it with a permanent shunt.

We have gotten preliminary pathology results back and they are now ruling out an infection. The path results are showing that this is a tumor/growth of some kind and we will have to wait until next week to get the final pathology results.

I can't even type anymore because I am so upset. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers...

My friend in N.C. was going though a similar situation. If you read her blog, she lists all kinds of information about her sons "diagnosis" and Superb Dr.'s that treated her son. I believe the "expert" pathologist was Dr. Unni and her Oncologist was Dr. Mirra and Dr. Mogul. Maybe you can gain some helpful info from her story. She basically journaled EVERYTHING.

Chrissie, please stay strong. You are an awesome mom to have noticed, and take such good care of him. I hope you are taking care of yourself. Is there anything I can do for you besides thoughts and prayers? I have sent a few people emails asking them to get a chain going like they do here in the south. You and your family are in my heart always.
