Meaghan's EEG came back negative! Her neurosurgeon was in agreement that given Meg's situation, it made sense that her brain be imaged again. A CT was ordered - 4th ventricle is clear, no hydrocephalus, no structural brain abnormalities.
I'd like to thank the staff at Children's and Van Elslander for their cooperative spirit. It takes tremendous effort to have transparent communication and a consistent vision; both parties NEVER make us feel that our repeated questions and double-checking is unwarranted. They communicate between each other multiple times daily. They are determined to provide continuity of care wherever Meg is.
As you pray for Meaghan's strength and recovery, please pray for the following: safe daily transport between hospitals, especially if we are dealing with inclement weather precise delivery of radiation treatments that Meaghan won't struggle w/nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite that Meaghan will have the strength to continue her afternoon therapy sessions that Meg will get the recuperative sleep she needs at night to fortify her during her long days that the medical staff recognize when Meg is struggling and treat her with compassion and love that all our ancillary support and caregivers (you all know who you are) have the strength to stand beside us Thank you again for your unceasing prayers
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.
