Good News - No Tumor!

Kent got out of surgery around 2pm and Dr. Pakzaban said everything went well. The good news is that it is not a tumor, although they will send the biopsy for analysis to be sure. According to Dr. Pakzaban, it is a "dead mass", from an old stroke, with fluid around it.

We've heard this story before, so there are many questions to be asked and not many answers today - the focus now is Kent's recovery. As of about 4:30, he was in ICU with a headache, but said he is hungry ... always a good sign!

The post-operative schedule has changed and he will be released to go home around noon tomorrow, when he gets out of ICU. He will see Dr. Pakzaban in one week and will get his biopsy results and have an opportunity to ask LOTS of questions at that time.
