I just spoke with Gavin's ENT doctor. He said that the biopsy came back and it's not a tumor or cancerous! The lab called it "ulcerous inflammation." I am very relieved about this! The doctor sounded quite relieved as well. Gavin will still need surgery to remove it. This will probably take place the beginning of January and will most likely only require a one night stay in the hospital. The only concern that the doctor had was, "How do we keep this from growing again?", since Gavin is obviously doing it to himself by somehow rubbing his teeth on the under side of his tongue. He suggested seeing our dentist and having a bite made for Gavin. I actually laughed when he said this! Gavin doesn't even like tasty food in his mouth! Do you think that he will tolerate a mouth piece?! I guess we'll take it one step at a time.
Thank You for your prayers!
