Tentative Surgery Date Set

Good evening everyone,

Dr. Keates, Nathan's Oncologist called us this afternoon to let us know that she had spoken with Dr. Lovvorn, the surgeon at Vanderbilt, and he is ready to re-sect Nathan's liver. The tentative date for the surgery is June 10th. We will go up on June 9th for the pre-op appointment and the surgery will be on the 10th, this could change depending on the O.R. schedule. To keep the tumor from regrowing Nathan will get Vincristine, one of the chemo drugs that doesn't lower his blood counts, tomorrow and the following Thursday. 

We just wanted to let everyone know that a tentative date has been set & should be confirmed by the end of the week. Thanks again for all of your prayers and support.
