Scott is in the ICU

Well, I just spent the past hour or so in the ICU holding Scott's hand. That seems to be a better comfort to him than even the morphine. He looks great. He smiles when he sees his family and is relieved that the first stage in the fight of the tumor is over. He is, of course, sleeping a lot but can communicate his thoughts when he needs to. He should be in the ICU until sometime tomorrow, pending his progress. The pathologist is analyzing the tumor and we should know some initial thoughts on that sometime next Tuesday. That's it for now, I'll update again sometime tomorrow and let you know if he is moving out of the Neuro ICU.

Thanks for all the prayers...looked like it worked :)


  1. Julie,

    Wow! I'm so happy to hear that Scott is doing well. I recieved notice of his condition from my sister today. I will keep you, Scott, and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for keeping us all updated on his progress. Please give Scott my best when you talk to him again. Take care, Melissa W.

  4. We have been praying every day and truly believe in prayer and that God does answer prayers better than a rabbits foot. We are thinking of you guys during this trying time and will be keeping up with this website. Be strong Julie and continue to be the strength that Scott needs now.

    Dear Julie and Scott's Family, Hank and I will keep Scott and his family in our prayers. We know the overwhelming effort it takes to cope with all the outpouring of love. My father has had two brain tumors over the last 10 years. It is a long and difficult process, but with positive results. My father has no memory of the process. The family has many more difficulty with the memories of the process. Our prayers are with you. Love, Barbara Brubaker and Henry Kent-Smith

  6. Thank God Scott's doing well! Hang in there Julie and family, and call us if you need ANTHING!! Keep us posted. love, Joy
