On Valentine’s day Mom took Jedidiah into the ER in Quincy. Jedidiah had been puking for two days, had a headache and was seeing double. The ER Doctor initially thought it was the flu, but a CAT scan soon revealed “something” in his brain. Within hours, Jedidiah was life flighted to Davis Medical Center. An MRI confirmed there was a mass inside of his head and Jedidiah was scheduled for an emergency biopsy. The biopsy revealed that Jedidiah has a GBM tumor. GBM, or Glioblastoma Multiforme tumor, is rare in children and as Jedidiah’s doctor told us, “Very, very, very difficult to treat”. Because it is so deep, Jedidiah’s tumor is inoperable. The biopsy left Jedidiah with partial paraylsis on the left side of his body, so now he has to use a wheelchair to be mobile. After undergoing six weeks of radiation the tumor shrank twenty percent; a miracle in itself. Jedidiah is a very tough young man- and a very loved young man. Our community has been So incredibly supportive. Thank you for all of your continued prayers and support!!!
Jedidiah's most recent MRI was performed on July 13, 2010. At the office visit that afternoon, Dr. Z told us, "I am so sorry, but Jedidiah's tumor has grown larger. There is nothing more we can do medically for Jedidiah. Go home and enjoy every day you have together."
