“The meningioma was the biggest one he'd ever seen. Strange growth pattern. Grew up and out, more than in, all in bone of skull.
Almost into brain which made it difficult to excise without causing deficit. Is not changing 15% odds on us, but won't know anything for 4 or 5 days when swelling goes down. Will have pathology report in 72 hours.
All we know is Mother is awake, alert, and recognizes us.”
Fri. 2:30 P.M.
Visit: Sally and Eleanor (2 of my daughters)
Notes taken by Eleanor
“Visited Mama until 3:10. Held her hand. Showed her get-well cards.
Auditory comprehension poor. No effort at speech. Very tired.”
