Team Todd update from our pal, Shane Stacks:
"OK so the latest I know from Todd after talking with him yesterday.
He is recovering well from the brain surgery and is in good spirits and has a good attitude.
Originally they were going to go after the lung cancer with radiation and chemotherapy, but the doctor then decided that he is going to remove a third of one of his lungs and then do chemo after that. The lung surgery is this Tuesday and then he will be in recovery for a few days. Evidently the lung surgery should get all of the mass in his lung.
Given that Todd has stage 4 cancer that had spread from his lungs to his brain stem his prognosis and treatment so far is actually pretty good. As he put it, it's a best case of a worst case scenario.
That's all I know medical-wise. He said work is being extremely cool with him during all of this. He mentioned he probably wouldn't be working again until after Thanksgiving, but I don't know if he meant just his freelancing or his day job as well.
He is very encouraged and appreciative of the help and fundraising and etc.
