Fundraisers, transplants, and surgeries, OH MY!

I promised an update today so here I am sitting on the cold floor outside the closed Library...

The fundraiser went well. I cannot put into words how grateful we are to know such amazing people. It was packed. Liam even made the news.

After Liam's CT scan his doctors put him on the transplant list. This was done as a precaution so there was no hold up iif that's what his surgeon decided was best. This was devastating, was had hoped and prayed so hard he wouldn't need a transplant.
On Friday, after a week of anxiety, we heard from the surgeon. The tumor, he believes is resectable; meaning after the 4th cycle of chemo he will have surgery to remove it!!!
The best news we could have ever gotten. The surgeon is still working with the transplant team and has sent Liam's scans to them to make sure they agree, but it looks like in 6 weeks Liam is having surgery.

Surgery will mean a 3 week stay in the hospital, but will all be done here in Charlotte.

Thank you so much for everyone's thoughts and prayers!
