Jerrod is back in the Brain Suite. They said it takes a while to get
the suite completely ready to begin. They are putting an IV in his
neck and he will have an IV in each arm I believe. He will be
operated on face down. EVERY nurse, every Doctor, every single
person has been so loving. The hospital chaplains are awesome and
loving. Market Street has absolutely amazed everyone here with their
outpouring of love and support. I dare not begin to actually make a
list of those we appreciate because I could never begin to list
everyone. We should be getting calls from the nurse every hour or
two. I may not be able to get emails out every time but Russ will be
posting updates on the website.
Russ has done an amazing job of keeping the website current. If you
keep checking back you should find new stuff all the time. We shot
about 60 seconds of video of Jerrod talking to all of you right
before they came to get him to take him to surgery. That should be
loaded on the website by now. There should be photos of all the food
Market Street brought and some photos from the waiting room.
Lisa Mack is our office manager and is controlling the phones in the
reception area. We don't want to take a chance on missing a call
from the OR nurse. So Lisa is making sure the phone is covered
Jerrod is now beginning the surgery. They have him in position and
they are doing the first scan. That scan is the road map. They will
work from that scan. They will continue to scan him all day. When
they take a piece of the tumor out they will look at it under the
microscope at the molecular level to determine what they believe
they are dealing with. The nurse told me before they went in that
when they look at it, she won't be able to tell me what they think
it is. That will have to come from the Dr. I am so glad she told me
that because if I asked and she said I can't tell you that I would
have panicked. But she said not to worry because she is not allowed
to give out that information.
I believe I will close this for now, but I will try to keep sending
out information just as often as I can.
The OR nurse called and said your son is precious. The CCU nurse
said that everyone in the CCU unit is talking
We just ordered some Tshirts for all of the friends and family
gathered here in the waiting room. Cindy Taylor at Stephen Joseph
Inc, is getting those made for us.
The shirts will say Team Jerrod. We are ordering a few extra so if
you are on your way we will have a shirt for you. And if we are out,
you may have mine!
Thank you could never be enough to tell you of our gratitude for
your prayers. PLEASE take some time to say more prayers today. With
a deep, deep feeling of love for you all I send you my gratitude.
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
