You will have significant experiences.
I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of
them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful and significant things.
Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you.
Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some
may build upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experiences.

Dear Family and Friends,

Zac is out of surgery and in the Neuro ICU. Initial reports state that the surgeon feels he resected most of the tumor. They will do a scan in a few days to see if there are any small stragglers. They removed four lamina, the back of the spine, on four vertebrae and did not replace them.  The surgeons tells us he will be in a good amount of pain. He's moving all extremities. The pathology was inconclusive (because of the pathologist, from what I can gather) so we have to wait for the pathology results to find out exactly what the tumor was. He has been extubated and is breathing on his own.

All in all it was a 12 hour surgery.  I'm hopeful that the scan result later in the week will show no remaining tumor. We are so thankful to God for answering our prayers and caring for Zac. Thank you all for praying for him. And thank you for showing your endless support with calls, texts and messages. They lifted my heart more than you can imagine. We love you all!

Believe in Miracles,

The Bollinger Family
