We talked to Dr.Walker
3:20 - Dr.Walker just came in to talk to us. He felt very optimistic about the surgery and was able to get out all the tumor he could see! It's hard to explain how cautiously elated we feel at this moment! Dr.Walker said the tumor was farther reaching than he had realized. It went all the way around the 3rd ventricle and down to the very bottom of Matt's brain. Matt will have an MRI tomorrow morning and we can see for sure how much (if any!) of the tumor remains. We're still pretty nervous, as Matt hasn't woken up yet. This means Dr.Walker hasn't performed any neurologic function tests. I can't wait to see him and see for myself how he is doing!
