Larry had his 4th craniotomy almost two weeks ago on Thursday and was home by Friday night. His recovery was remarkable - was alert and responsive immediately after surgery and spent one night in ICU with little to no pain or other side effects. He's a pro and opted to go home rather than spend another night in the hospital. Based on appearance, surgeon thought the pathology would show a recurrence of melanoma but it was just necrotic tissue from prior gamma knife and surgery #3! We are overjoyed and feeling very blessed. We have a follow up for suture removal tomorrow with next Keytruda infusion scheduled for 9/19. Sending prayers out to all who are battling. Take care!

Congratulations! What a relief, I am sure. Like they say, third time a charm, only you had to have #4 just to find that out!
