We had some fantastic news yesterday. My friend came to see us before I could get to her with the results of her husbands tests. He has had 3 quarters of the brain tumor removed and it is very low grade and slow growing which means he needs no further treatment. They only removed 3/4 of the tumor because of where it is but they have said that if they need to they can remove some more in the future. He has been signed off work for 8 weeks and he will have to have regular checks and tests. He will also be unable to drive or work at heights for the next 12 months, bit difficult for a builder but his boss is very understanding. We are letting him have another 2 weeks to recover a bit more and then we are going to go out and celebrate, t-total style for now.
