Good news!

All right, you all can stop your anxious nail-biting/smoking/hair twirling/feet tapping!
The MRI results are in.  And I'm not one for suspense when it comes to medical results either.  So here goes.  The doctor says that everything looks fine.  The medical terminology he used was, "stable".  He said that at this point, taking a "watch and wait" mentality with the tumor is acceptable based on the conditions he saw in the MRI.  Therefore, we are now watching...and waiting.  The next MRI is scheduled for March for continued monitoring.  Like I said in my last blog post, the first year after surgery is crucial in determining the future path to treatment.  If the tumor continues to be "stable", then we will ease up on the number of MRIs and follow-up visits.  If the tumor grows, then treatment will be required with frequent monitoring.

Anyway, we are so blessed to have this good news and appreciate all the prayers and good vibes that were sent our way!  Appropriately, we are having an early Thanksgiving dinner tonight with my grandparents.  I think we all have a lot to be thankful for this year.  Pictures to come soon.  :o)
