Scans show no evidence of the tumour!

We have just seen Mr Mallucci (Neurosurgeon). They’ve reviewed the galadium MRI scans which we didn’t have when we spoke last night… AND…. there is no evidence of the tumour and they are calling it a COMPLETE RESECTION. They think the area they saw on the previous scans before is blood and the veins.

As you can imagine we are utterly relieved and so unbelievably grateful. A total rollercoaster of emotion. But thank you Jesus!

Eloise will still require chemo and/or focal radiotherapy but all the medical professionals are all really really pleased.

Eloise has been sleeping this morning and various cannulas and lines are being taken off her. She is still in PICU and will be transferred to the HDU later to continue her recovery – it will be interesting to see how her eye movement and swallow are when she properly wakes up.

Also, as of now, Eloise has had no seizures today…

Thank you everyone for your love and prayers. Thank you to Mr Mallucci and his team. And thank you God!

      Our love to you all . Paul and Helen

  7. Praise God! That is such good news. We haven’t seen you for years Mel but we have been praying for you all since February when our son Adam told us about Eloise. Our homegroup has been praying…. and others have asked their churches to be praying…. It struck me yesterday as we prayed during Eloise’s operation that God has mobilised an army of people to intercede for you all, many (most!) of whom you will not meet this side of heaven. Each prayer is a strand of God’s love woven into a blanket to cover and protect you, may you sense its shelter and warmth. We will continue to hold your family, and Eloise in particular, in our prayers.


  8. This is awesome news – Thank you Jesus – praise your name
    You must be absolutely beside yourselves with this news.

  14. That’s such wonderful news, praise God! I’ve been following your journey and praying regularly after a friend of your extended family asked our church to pray for Eloise. We found ourselves in a paediatric oncology ward with our 5 year old 2 years ago so I understand some of your journey although ours had a good outcome pretty quickly. Will continue to pray for all your family x


  15. That is absolutely fabulous news, been thinking of and praying for you a lot over recent days, so glad it appears to have gone smoothly, you are one very special family – hears hoping to a straight forward recovery period xx.


  16. Heartfelt thanks and praise, we continue to pray for all at Harbour Churches, just wonderful news and our God is a great God but so great are the neurosurgeons and teams at the hospitals and the very special parents Melissa and Pete!


  17. I will continue to pray until I see that day when Anna and Eloise are playing happily together in the garden.
    Love Rosemary Blacoe
