FIRST UPDATE

FROM ANDREW AND SARAH MCKEARNEY

23/10/17

Andrew has a tumour in the pituitary gland (located behind your eyes). This will almost certainly require an operation. Most pituitary tumours are not malignant (99%), and even those that are rarely spread. Drugs are then used to compensate for the damage done to the pituitary gland. His symptoms continue to be controlled by drugs except for his poor eyesight, and that means he can’t drive. The decision about what to do and when will be taken on Tuesday 31 October when Andrew is to meet the medical team at the Churchill hospital.

The news about Sarah’s foot is not as good as was hoped and she now has her foot in plaster, and that means that she too can’t drive and has to walk on crutches.

Thank you for your love, support and prayers that mean the world to us. For more information please look up the details below.
