Lucas Is Very Very Sick

Recommended Posts

On Friday morning we received the very worst news - we were told that our son Lucas had a brain tumour. He went into surgery Saturday and and the tumour was removed. He is still in intensive care. The neurosugeon feels it is a malignant tumour but thinks he got it all. He will likely have to go through chemo and radiation but we are just taking things one day at a time. He is just starting to open his eyes but isn't speaking yet. He sleeps most of the time.

 

I think that I am in a complete state of shock. I'm so grateful that he survived the surgery. He is my whole life and I can't bare the thoughts of losing him. I ask that you pray for him. He has been through so much in his 6 years - being born at 28 weeks, having Kawasaki disease at 2 1/2, and now a brain tumour. I'll try to come on the boards periodically with updates about his progress.

 

Thank you.

Oh NO !! Shawna :D How terrifying for you. I cannot imagine how heartwrenching it would be to watch your own blood go through so much at such a young age. You will be in my thoughts and prayers ....please look after yourself so you can look after Lucas. Life has some twists and turns...this kind is the unexpected. Biggest hugs, Shawna :angel1:

:D OH NO Shawna, how devastating for you and your family. Will pray and pray for little Lucas, keep us informed as to his progress. I keep visualizing his beautiful blue eyes, glad the surgery has been done and a treatment plan has been formulated. Cancer treatment has advanced so very much in the last few years. Hugs, take care of yourself and rest assured we are thinking of you and Lucas. :angel1:

Shawna,

 

I am praying for you and your son through this tough time. Lucas has been such a strong, fighting, little man with big blue eyes like someone i know :) (Laughing out loud). I know he will get through his, and i am praying my hardest for you, and i will continue doing so... He will make it, and you will be fine, so think positive, and let the healing begin! :D

 

Nathan.

He is still a very sick boy in the ICU. He is on lots of morphine for his pain. He opens his eyes but isn't speaking yet. He may have an infection as he has a fever. He has a bad cold so I'm sure they are watching for pneumonia. I'm still an absolute wreck. I want to be them for him every second but crumble when I see him. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers and I will update when I get a chance. xoxox
