Waiting to hear
Sorry it's been so long but once again we're waiting to hear from Jack's doctors. We had another disastrous trip to Duke. The functional MRI did not go well. This time, Jack was combative, probably due to the effects of a Valium that was prescribed to him to try to calm him down. Sometimes they have the opposite effect. Now we are expecting to hear this week on what the doctors want to do next. We still have not confirmed the location of the speech center of his brain. A hematologist did check him out while we were there and cleared him for surgery if that becomes a reality. The stress has been pretty bad at times but all of us are dealing with it the best that we can. We'll keep you updated...
