    Still trying to get rid of pneumonia but last night was bad as her regular neurologist saw the email and came right away late last night after reviewing her scans and showed me that the tumor had doubled in 4 months and said she had 24 hours if he doesn’t try to get some of the tumor asap. If she recovers from pneumonia he will attempt another surgery but not till the breathing tube is out , which hasn’t happened yet. Also said it will grow back and might have a year, not something u want to hear. Between Radiation, Chemo and pneumonia she’s very weak but a fighter And complains about nothing, she’s been giving me a thumbs up a bunch of times today and can hear me so that’s good. Thank you all for everything

    In case anyone hasn't seen the update on gofundme today, there's some good news!

    "Shannon's surgery succeeded in relieving the pressure the tumor was putting on her brain stem. She is awake and alert. She is well aware of the love and prayers being sent her way."

    Pressure was relieved and Neurological Surgeon wants to remove more tumor which is in a dangerous area in the Cerebellum Brain stem area. He also said she would most likely be in a wheelchair and other impairments after it.The main thing right now is to get her off the breathing & feeding tube but she failed the test again so it has to stay in till she’s able to breathe on her own.
    She’s one tough cookie I’ll say.

    Have been including Shannon in my evening prayers since reading this thread several days ago. Made a small donation. It's nice to see so many NESers offering what they can in prayers, thoughts, and monetary donations.
