Update: Meg will be in ICU through the early part of next week. Her eye movement is a little more coordinated today. She seems very sensitive to stimulation. She is experiencing cerebellum mutism, which is normal, but greatly adding to her irritability. No word from pathology. I am asking for an extra measure of patience and grace as we wait for a glimpse of our old daughter - a meaningful look or a smile.
Thank you for taking time to follow Meaghan's journey of healing as she battles Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer.
Meaghan, our five year old daughter, was diagnosed early November 2009 after an MRI revealed she had a 4 cm solid tumor in her cerebellum. The tumor resection, while successful, resulted in serious complications.
Cancer is a family affair and here I try to chronicle not only Meg's journey, but our whole family's as well.
