MILESTONE: 7 Tumour and Seizure Free Months!

It had just dawned on me.  Today is the 4th of June...and what happens every 4th of the month?  It's banner change day!  Not a physical banner of course, but rather the one at the top of Rilley's blog!

So today marks the seventh month since Rilley underwent the surgery at the University of Minnesota to remove the meningioma from his brain.  The first few months seemed to move so slowly.  Possibly because we were still on pins and needles just waiting for something bad to happen.  Would he have another seizure?  Would there be any side effects of the surgery or the vaccines?  But, as you know, there hasn't been anything negative of note.  Given his clean bill of health and spotless MRIs from the last two visits to Minnesota, Rilley seems to be on the right track.  I am hesitant to use the word cured, because in the grand scheme of things, we are still in the early stages.  Just barely over the half way mark of Drs. Ohlfest and Pluhar's clinical trial, but all indications are positive.

The months now seem to fly by.  It seems like I changed the banner to say "6 Months Tumour Free!" just last week.

So Rilley, we have just five more months until our final visit to the Veterinary Medical Center at the one year mark.
