On October 24th the Gamaknife procedure was scheduled and a CT Scan was to be completed prior to the procedure to get a map of where the lesions were located. When the did the CT scan they found that the 1cm had grown to 4cm and there was also a new lesion that was 7mm, they were able to use the Gamaknife procedure on the 7mm but the 4cm was too large. The doctors discussed options, and it is scheduled that he has fractional radiation on the 4cm beginning Wednesday the 29th of October and will have a 5day consecutive treatment (with the exception of Saturday and Sunday). The doctor will the re access the lesions to see what the progress is.
With all of this being said, Teri nor Darrell have been able to work since September 14th. Darrell did have some time saved up for paid vacation and short term disability thankfully, but it is running out quickly. This journey of Darrell's illness has just begun and has no end date as of now. The doctors aren't sure of a projected date for Darrell's return to work, and once he is home someone will have to be with him 24hrs a day. Teri won't be able to return to work since their insurance doesn't cover in home care for Darrell. We have started the Gofundme account to help Teri and Darrell be able to pay their basic needs through this journey. Their faith in God is strong and they know everything is his will!
