Michael

Michael has been in the hospital since Thursday night. He had his regular doctor appointment with his PCP and they sent him right over to Froedtert Hospital. The pheochromocytoma tumor is getting larger and has attached itself with 1 "finger" (gross!) to the heart and 4 other "fingers" to his spinal cord (ultra gross... I am a visual person - nasty!). Needless to say with the additional pressure on the spinal cord Michael is losing feeling in his right side as well as the left side that hasn't had much feeling for 8 years. Whatever the doctors said to him worked and he has agreed to have the tumor removed.

Needless to say my Scrapbooking weekend had to go bye-bye (nuts!) I decided to stay into town to be close just in case... and even though Nick thought (at age 12) it would be awesome if he stayed home for the weekend by himself I figured that probably wouldn't be the best parenting moment ever.

Throughout the weekend the blood pressure continued to spike up and the crash. At this point surgery is scheduled for Tuesday at 1pm.

Keep us in your prayers!
