Latest Journal Update


Hello friends!

In case anyone still receives updates on Jerry's page, we have good news to report.  Jerry had his 4th annual MRI and his follow-up appointment with the neurosurgeon, Reid Thompson, at Vanderbilt last month.

The report was great!  The remaining part of the tumor has not changed (which is good!).  They want to monitor it to make sure it doesn't grow.  The doc was impressed with Jerry's continued recovery.

Every time Jerry & Nancy reminisce with the doc, they learn something new and fascinating.  Dr. Thompson said that of the patients who have the "propofol syndrome" like Jerry did, there is an 80% fatality rate. 

It was yet another reminder how fortunate Jerry was to survive, but also to have such an amazing recovery.  He's a walking miracle!

Thank you for your continued prayers and love for Jerry.  It's nice to have so many caring friends and family.
