Dad is still in hospital and we’re still none the wiser about his prognosis. They’ve been doing more tests, but they’re unable to do a biopsy due to the locationÂ the tumor isÂ in. Operation is out of the question aswell since it’s sitting right on the brain stem, an operation would likely completely paralyse him so that he wouldn’t even be able to breathe.
Without knowing what the the tumor is it’s difficult to know how to treat it and they’ve even started talking about the possibility of Multiple Sclerosis aswell. The good news is that one of the treatments for both a tumor and MS is steriods…….so on steriods he is to help relieve the symptoms.
It’s gonna be a long journey I think, and I’m starting to deal with the initial shock. I think my family is too.
I’d like to thank everybody who’s expressed support and thanks around the world and also locally. It’s actually been really amazing for me to have so much support everywhere, I’m a lucky girl!
