He's out of surgery. This official diagnosis is Medulloblastoma (http://www.cancerbackup.org.uk/Cancertype/Brain/Typesofbraintumour/Medulloblastoma)
It seems to be clean gone now, according to the surgeon.
He will have to undergo chemotherapy, possibly until he's 8.
They'll do another MRI tomorrow just to make sure everything is okay, no odd blockages or missplaced scar tissue.
And in the interests of disclosure, there's an 80% survival rate.
Current Mood: not feeling any better

Morbid as it sounds, my first thought was "Oh good...a blastoma with a high survival rate!" Obviously my co-worker's son's battle with neuroblastoma has me a bit jaded. =(
Anyhow - very glad to hear they think they got the whole tumor and best wishes for a quick and complete recovery with no relapsing!
