Paging Dr. McYummy

Ashley and her MRI films were seen today by her neurosurgeon, affectionately known as Dr. McYummy. He is such a handsome man with piercing blue eyes and the most wonderful bedside manner. He seems to care - he definitely listens to my concerns - and he seems to like Ashley a lot. I wish I could say that about all her doctors.

Ashley's brain tumors had not changed at all since the MRI 6 months ago. So, at the doctor's advice, we are going to go for a year until the next MRI. It's a little scary, but I am going to give it a try.

There's both good and bad about that decision though. The good is that Ashley won't have to be sedated and won't have to go through the hospital procedure as often. The bad is that we won't see Dr. McYummy as often :(

P.S. That's Dr. McYummy in the picture above looking at Ashley's brain.

Great news, congrats to both of you! Too bad about Dr.McYummy, but well worth the price, I'm sure. ;-)
