Update on Evan from my Mom

This has been a very tough day. The good news is that we are now home from the hospital with Evan. The bad news is that we have to go back on Tuesday to do the surgery all over again. We met at length with the neurosurgeon and oncologist today to discuss the results of the first surgery. Unfortunately the tumor was missed. There are some plausable reasons for this that we won't go into here, but after much discussion, consultations, and prayer we still have confidence in the surgeon and feel that he should be the one to complete the job. We do know that Evan will start radiation treatments several weeks after surgery and possibly have some form of chemotherapy. There are still a lot of questions to answer, but we're moving forward in faith. Evan has been a trooper through all of this but he did take the news of a second surgery quite hard, which is perfectly understandable. He has definitely enjoyed being home this evening and we hope to have an calm and relaxing weekend so he can get his strength back before Tuesday. Thanks to all of you for your continued love and support. So many people have stepped up to watch our little boys, bring meals, visit Evan in the hospital, etc. We're so thankful for such a great family and friends. Robert and Joann
