Good News (sort of)


Well, we got the go ahead on surgery tomorrow.  So, the tumor will be dealt with, once and for all.  However, the white blood cell count did not come down much, leading surgeon to believe it has nothing to do with infection, but possibly a bone marrow disorder of some type, such as leukemia.  So, surgery will proceed, and more testing will be done while in the hospital to determine what is going on with the blood count.  I’m hoping he is just having an extreme reaction to the decadron (steroid) they have had him taking.  He has had bad side effects from day one.  It will raise your counts, but not usually to the level of Greg’s.  That’s where we are now.  One thing at time.  And right now, it is goodbye brain tumor time!
