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.

November 12, 2009

First, many thanks to all of your for following our new journey. We are so thankful for our families' support. Thank you to our church family at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Eastpointe for their outpouring of support to our family. Thank you to all of you we don't know for lifting our daughter and our family in prayer. It means so very much. So many of you have expressed a strong desire to help in anyway. Rest assured as soon as we determine what our needs are we will be soliciting the help that has been so generously offered.

Meaghan's progress is very slow. She has periods of wakefulness, but there has been no talking or smiling. She seems to either be half-awake, sleeping or crying and fussing. While I have been assured that this is normal given her type surgery, it is very difficult for us to watch. Currently, we are trying very hard to get her to eat on her own. If we are not successful with this very soon the doctors will have to look at a feeding tube or pic line.

We have not heard from pathology yet. We do realize that a correct pathology is key to a precise course of treatment. We are praying for all the health care workers involved in Meaghan's care; that they will be given a extra measure of discernment, compassion and wisdom in helping us guide her on her journey of healing.

I hope to post more encouraging news later today.
