Today, Case underwent a nine-hour surgical procedure performed by Dr. La Quaglia to remove Case's neuroblastoma. Case was really strong, and all of his vitals were perfect throughout the surgery. Dr. La Quaglia was able to remove 95% of the neuroblastoma, but he fears that the tumor has become high risk. We will know more once we get the pathology results in one week, but it is likely that Case will need further treatment (specifically, chemotherapy, radiation, antibody treatment, and another surgery).
Thank you for your prayers and support. We are grateful that the surgery went so well today. We continue to pray that Case will recover from his surgery, and that those who are caring for him will have the inspiration they need to help him.
