Griff decided to see a doctor in December about some symptoms he had been experiencing…losing some vocabulary words, headaches, etc. By January, we discovered Griff had a brain tumor. He had surgery on Tuesday, February 6, successfully removing most of the tumor. He spent a few days recuperating, getting reports of the Eagles parade, and getting to know the outstanding staff at Jefferson Hospital. By Friday he was home and a week later he was spotted plowing driveways! Griff has been a part of a clinical trial using his own immune system to fight the tumor. That is wrapping up this week and he will begin chemotherapy and radiation Monday, March 19. (The chemo is daily by pill, and the radiation will be weekdays at Jefferson for 6 weeks).
Griff is feeling physically and emotionally strong, as anyone who has seen him lately will attest. We will be making updates to the site to let you know how things are going. Anyone interested in helping with meals can contact Jill Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org, to join forces with the amazing Methacton staff who have been providing delicious meals!
The kids are doing well. Barbi and Griff have been in the cheering section at Hannah’s swim meets, and they are enjoying having Tripp home for spring break.
Thanks for your kind words, encouraging thoughts, meals, and prayers. Your continued prayers for safe travels to Philly every day and for minimal side effects would be appreciated.
