Update on Marcus
First of all, thank you to all those who have been praying for Marcus and his family. Marcus was diagnosed with a 2nd brain tumor while on his Make A Wish trip to Hawaii this last week. After receiving some steroids in the ER in Hawaii on Tuesday, he was able to go on his tour of Pearl Harbor the next day like he wanted to. That was the main part of his wish and he was able to go! yay! He and his dad were able to go on a helicopter ride the next day. They had a good time. Unfortunately he wasn't up to going on a submarine ride on Friday. My BIL, John, took the other 3 boys and went while my sister, Karen, stayed at the hotel with Marcus. They are scheduled to arrive home today and Marcus will see his doctors in SLC this week. I'm sure they will need to do more tests before they find out if this tumor is even operable. I talked to Karen on Friday night and she said that they are all ready to go home and deal with "it". They have enjoyed being in Hawaii (their hotel is right on the beach!) but it is time to go home and face reality. Of course we are praying for the best outcome possible.
Thank you for your good thoughts and prayers for us!
