Bobby was taken to the Emergency Room at Anne Arundel Hospital on the morning of January 5, 2009. The MRI revealed a brain tumor. The hospital is running several tests Monday - Wednesday to rule out other potential issues and on Thursday, January 8, 2009, Bobby will be operated on. The doctors are only performing a biopsy on Thursday. It will be a surgerical procedure rather than a needle biopsy since there is fluid in the mass. This process as I understand it will provide a better view of what's going on than a needle biopsy and the surgeon will be better prepare for the unexpected (i.e., fluid) with a more invasive procedure.
Would you please keep him in your prayers that the mass is not cancer and they are able to either operate or treat. Thank you for your prayer support!
