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.

Still Waiting

Meaghan is still only half awake and very irritable when she is awake. No smiles or words yet. We are making very, very slow, but steady progress.

The doctor's have raised her drain to 20 which is good and the fluids are still nice and clear. Her sodium levels are still low, so we are aggressively treating that. Her nutrition intake is null, so we are forced to have an nasogastric tube for nutritional supplement. We know it is for the best, but it still feels like a setback.

Still no word from pathology. While we wouldn't be able to start treatment right now anyway, awaiting final confirmation is very difficult. We hope to hear something by Monday.

For now we are focusing on our day to day goals, like eating. We are praying constantly. Please pray for Meaghan's older brother and sister. They are really having a difficult time with all of this. Madison is angry with God and Ethan is just so easily frustrated.

Thank you for your unceasing prayers.
