Good Morning All,
Heartfelt thanks from Tom McCarthy for your ” Well wishes and continued prayers ” for his Dad. Mr. McCarthy had his surgery this past Wednesday. A 4.5 hour procedure that yielded some important information but did not have the desired result that we nave been praying for. After extensively looking at the Tumor and its placement with all available technology, it has been determined that the Tumor is inoperable as Big Tom’s quality of life, post-op would be extremely poor. He was expected to be released from the Step-down recovery unit by today. He will be on the mend from his surgery for the next 2 or 3 week before the Doctors begin the next phase of treatment.
The operation showed some positive results. The Tumor has indeed been reduced in size by the previous two weeks of the initial treatment and there has been no Metastases. The Doctors have not said it officially, but, they would probably reclassify from Stage 3a to 2b. The Family is remaining positive and the doctors are encouraged by the success of the past treatment and believe Radiation/Chemo will have an effect upon keeping it controlled.
As Tom says, the good fight continues. Thank you again for your continued prayers. Please keep the volume up for this good man and his Family. Your prayers are greatly apprecjated and they have borne some pisitjve results. Thank you. God Bless.
