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!!
