I'm posting for Allyson until further notice, but know that she will be taking over when she can.
Her surgery, which was estimated to take 3-4 hours, took one. They got in, got the tumor, and got out. It wasn't deep, and it did not appear to have "tentacles." Writing that word about a foreign object in your body kinda gags me. But I digress.
They monitored her motor function during the procedure and said they don't expect any issues. Mike just texted me to say she is awake and already sassy so I am thinking her speech/emotions are a-okay.
The mass what exactly what they thought, part cystic-looking, part tumor. It will be shipped to pathology today and we will know what it is and what our next step is, if any, in a couple weeks.
Please continue to pray for her recovery and that her pathology report is extremely boring and uninteresting.
Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to us during this time. Every prayer, text, email, phone call, meal, babysitting, and the countless other acts of kindness you have shown us have not gone unnoticed. We can never thank you all individually but know we are eternally grateful.
