For those of you who don’t know, our sweet Dalton was diagnosed with a tumor in his skull last week. Both sets of parents TOGETHER took him to the neurosurgeon in Tampa today. He doesn’t know exactly what the growth is, but it is not on or in his brain, it is in the skull bone itself. It is about the size of a slice of tangerine 1/4 inch thick. He wants to remove it next week. They will take it, as well as lsome surrounding skull bone out and place a hard mesh-like plate over the gap with screws into the skull.
He will send a piece of it out for biopsy to see if it is cancerous. At this point there is no way to know. He said it is definitely some kind of disease in the skull which is not common. The surgery will take about 2 hours and he will need to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 2 days and will be out of school for about 2 weeks. What comes after that will depend on what the results from the biopsy are. Thank y’all for your prayers!!! Please keep them coming!
