We just received our second update from the nurse. They are still working on Megan, mapping and removing the tumor. She is doing well. Vital signs are strong and things are moving along. They are taking a little longer then we thought it was going to take in the second part of the surgery, but they warned us that this might happen. Though they did the Functional MRI yesterday, and pinpointed the area of the brain she is using for different fictions, the technology is still not 100%. They have her awake for that very reason. They will open her up and touch electrodes to the area they want to remove. If she can't talk , think, more etc. , then they know they can't remove that area of the tumor. We told them to take as much time as they need. Please pray and ask all your friends and family to pray that the tumor is benign!!! Send out an email to all you know for that prayer!!

Take your time, DOC, take your time. That is so cool that you could talk to Megan. Next time tell her we love her and we are praying.....

We might be separated by distance, but thankfully prayers aren't hindered by a few thousand miles! I am thanking God now for all that He has done already, and all He has yet to do. I love you to pieces, Hot Stuff! xoxoxox

PS Brains are overrated...I work with lots of people every day who don't have a brain at all, and they seem to get along just fine!

Hey Meggy, I hope you know that we all love you and that we are all praying for you. Being your little sister, i have to be worried. There is nothing in this world that i want more than for you to come out of that room, all healed, no tumor, and remember everything. (and not be stupid or anything!!)lol! But i guess what i'm saying is that without you, this family isn't whole. You are beautiful! We all love you! God loves you too! Love, always. Hannah
