Jeff has 34 staples and is already a bit apprehensive about when (how) they take them out.
The tumor was a little bit stuck to his brain, however the neurosurgeon said it wasn’t significant and he was able to burn it out.
The skull piece removed to perform surgery was too diseased to put back in. They put in a mesh piece instead.
Next he will have radiation targeting the area in which the tumor was removed. The neurosurgeon is hopeful this will prevent that tumor from returning.
When they opened Jeff up, they could also see the other tumor. Due to its location it was decided not to remove. Additionally, it’s small enough that radiation should take care of it.
I’m still astounded by how little aftercare was needed. Jeff was discharged around 9:30 this morning! (Friday, 9-10)
In other news, Jeff has wanted an English Bulldog for years. Today his dream comes true. Our daughter and I are on a mini road trip to pick up “Mattie”. 🐾❤️
