That’s a Wrap

Husband here, one more time:

The rockstar neurosurgeon just came out and said Karyn’s surgery is done. “Karyn did great,” was the good word, and he got everything out that he saw as abnormal tissue. It sounds like it went very well. 

Pathology’s initial assessment is that it is new tumor growth, rather than inflammation caused by Karyn’s vaccine trial. While that was always the more likely scenario, hearing it from the doctor stings. Again. Always. 

Still, there’s no reason to be anything but optimistic. Karyn has kept “the beast” at bay for two and half years. There are treatments she can use and new trials with encouraging results she can likely join. 

She’s now getting situated in ICU, and I should get to join her soon. If it takes too long I’m stealing a pair of scrubs, sneaking in and staying until they realize I’m kissing a patient. 

Eternally grateful for all your love and support, Todd

  2. Thank you for the updates. What a relief to hear he got everything and she did so well. I can only imagine how crushing it was to hear that it was new growth. Dang. You both are fighters and she’s a mighty warrior. You are both being surrounded by love and prayers and it is good to hear there are still more options to go at the beast. If anyone can do it. Karyn can!

  3. Karyn and Todd, send lots of prayers, good vibes and healing thoughts across the miles. Karyn, you are an amazing woman, mother, wife and you have this. You ROCK!!!

  4. Thanks for the great updates Todd! Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I know firsthand that Karyn could not have a better neurosurgeon. You and Karyn are the real rockstars with your outlook and attitude!

    Keep the good word coming!

  5. Thanks for the good update. Hope you got some kissing in without sneaking around… although that could be more fun. Thinking of you guys.
