And So We Wait

Sarah had her one week post-op visit with the surgeon today. They removed her bandage and pulled a tiny thread out from one side of her incision. Sarah was really great, no fussing at all and she even managed to make Dr. M and his nurse laugh. In the days prior to her appointment, Sarah had expressed a lot of concern as to what her neck would look like after the bandage was removed.  I am happy to report it looks great.   You could see how Dr. M made the incision run along the natural line of her neck and jaw. Even now, only one week after the biopsy, you can tell there will hardly be a scar.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any new information as to a final diagnosis. Dr. M and Dr. L have let us know that pathology is still reviewing the biopsy samples and it is inconclusive at this time. We should have more details and information for everyone by Thursday.

And so we wait……..

  1. It's not always the waiting that is the hardest but it is the true fact the your child is going through something that you cannot fix as her parent. There is no worse pain in your heart then that. I have seen alot of tragedy in my life and I think the worse thing in the world for me would be to see anything happen to my child. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
