David was a real trooper this morning. Handled everything like a pro, except he really didn't want to see the IV in his arm. The nurse obliged him with a cover for it. The surgeon removed the tumor, and the pathologist saw signs of teratoma. In children, this is not usually of great concern, and the surgeon is cautiously confident that this surgery will be all that David needs. The tumor is being biopsied, and we will know the results of that test next week.
We are all home now, and David is sleeping. I think the anesthesia will gradually wear off today. It is nice that he is home and resting. He was becoming a little agitated at the hospital, and really just wanted out of there.
Thanks for all your love and prayers.
I'm taking a nap!
