For those of you who don't know, Scott was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Sunday, August 27th. He is at Morristown Memorial Hospital now. He has had a couple of cat scans and an MRI. The doctors have determined that it is a primary intrinsic tumor. It is on the left side of his brain and has a large cyst on top of it. The next step for him is surgery. We are still researching the best place for him to have his surgery.
We appreciate all of you who have helped us to research the best care in the area. Ben has done extensive research at a couple of New York hospitals as well as the regional hospitals here. He will most likely need long term treatment after the surgery and so we are looking for the best doctors as well as where Scott will feel most comfortable and what meets our insurance and financial needs. We will probably be making a decision in the next day or two and we'll update the blog as we make these decisions.
Again, we are overwhelmed by the support from our friends and family. We appreciate all of your help, support and concern. We will try to update this blog daily so that everyone can stay informed.
Thanks again for everything. - Julie
