Out of Surgery

Sarah is out of surgery, and in a post-op holding room. She will be there for another hour until we can see her, but she is "awake".

There was only one surprise during surgery... and it was good. Going into surgery, our doctor thought that he could get 80% of tumor out. It turns out that he was able to get 95% of it out!

Preliminary diagnosis is still Grade 2 Astrocytoma. Official diagnosis will be determined by March 11th.

More details to come, but that's the skinny. We hope to see her around 4:30.

Thank you all for your prayers. It has been a pretty taxing day for us, but your prayers, and the company of our friends and family here at the hospital made it MUCH easier.


  1. PTL for a good surprise! Continuing to pray!

  2. I am Sarah Green's cousin and having been praying for you all. I read your blog at exactly 4:30, so I hope you are seeing Sarah right now.

  3. Thanks so much for the update! Your family is such an inspiration to so many - it's incredible to see prayer working! It's also wonderful to see how your faith and strength and trust in the Lord will impact and grow others to trust more in the Lord. -Matt and Briana Pinkerton

  4. I came across your blog through another and have been following Sarah's story. I've been diagnosed with a brain tumor as well in front lobal area and it's also astrocytoma. I've been very curious to learn about her treatment and how she is doing. Sarah as well as the rest of your family are in my thoughts and prayers and I look forward to keeping up with her updates to see how's she doing. My next dr appt with my neurosurgeon is on the 14th and I am scared to death but also ready for a "plan of action".

  5. So glad to hear that Sarah is out of surgery and it all went better than expected. Now will will continue to pray that she will have a speedy recovery. Love you all
