Back at Stanford for a follow up with his surgeon.

November 6th, 2007 · No Comments

Today we traveled up to Stanford.  Travis saw his neurosurgeon for the first time since the summer. He gave Travis’s progress a “B+”.  He said that he expects Travis’s eye to come back to normal.  He also expects his forehead to wrinkle again. Overall, the appointment went well.  We saw an MRI pre-surgery and compared it to the MRI post-surgery.  The second image was overwhelming.  The tumor went from being the size on an egg to the size of a pea.  Seeing the newer image made my heart skip a bit. There is really no other way to describe looking at a picture of hope.Tomorrow Travis has more appointments.  I will update again soon.
