Thank you to all Scott’s friends  – locally, electronically and universally.  Your friendship, encouragement and support is the best medicine for ALL of us during this journey.  What we have to report at this point is pretty general until we meet with the doctor today and know more about his pathology reports. We also want to make sure Scott is the first receiver of his condition prior to this blog.  What we can report is that because of Scott’s general great health, he came through surgery without any complications.  Surgery lasted about 9 hours and he is being cared for in ICU right now.  He is sedated,  breathing with the help of a ventilator,  but they anticipate removing that sometime today to see how he does on his own.  Wish we had more details to report.  Check back tomorrow and hopefully we can share more information with you.

  1. Thinking about you Scott! – M@

  2. Thank you for the update! It’s so great to hear that things are progressing well so far.

  3. Scott has been inspirational to me a runner and “strive-to-be-vegan!”
    Please let him know someone in Denver is thinking of him.

  4. I’m putting so much energy into “sending good energy” to Scott that I just realized that you (his parents) no doubt need some too. I know you’re all too aware how important “care for the caregivers” is, and I want you to know that this isn’t just about Scott. (Although I did -love- his blog “it’s not about you!”) ….We’ve never met, but we will!!

  5. Thanks so much for the update! Let us know when he’s up and about… although I guess he’ll probably let us know when that is. (My husband had a brain tumor removed in January and it was 48 hours before he was able to tell everyone how he felt.) As the caregiver myself I can totally empathize with you and say that you just need to hang in there for the moment!

  6. So glad the surgery went well! I am hoping for the best news possible!

I am thankful for fate and college to provide me this friendship. Just remind him, if he could live through Damon, he’s got this whipped!
