Thank you ALL for your prayers, emails, and comments for our daughter and our family ( if you missed the post it is HERE). God dispatched his angels and I am happy to share an update. First I want to tell you they found another tumor on her thyroid. So there are three. The other day the Neurosurgeon’s office called our daughter and it went something like this.
Neurosurgeon’s office, “please come to the office now”,
Daughter,” umm, that sounds urgent, okay, do I need to bring someone with me?”
Neurosurgeon’s office ” yes, the surgeon wants to see you now”
Daughter, “okay my husband can leave work and come with me”
Neurosurgeon’s office, “okay “
If you received this phone call knowing you have three tumors, it would send your mind spinning when you are told it is urgent to get to the Neurosurgeon’s office right away. Right? Let me tell you, our daughter is a tough cookie, but it was an emotion-charged 50 mile drive for them to the neurosurgeon’s office.
When they arrived at the Neurosurgeon’s office he told them the two tumors on her pituitary gland will require brain surgery and he explained the procedure ( I’ll leave the grisly details out). Our daughter said are we talking life and death here? Keep in mind the emotion-charged drive to the Neurosurgeon’s office.
Please usher in the hallelujah choir now…
He replied, ” it is not” life or death and it is a 1% chance it will turn into anything more serious. She can schedule the surgery when she is ready. Meanwhile, she will have to tolerate the migraines, blurry vision and fatigue the best that she can. Prayers answered! Now I wonder if you are thinking, well she still needs brain surgery and that can’t be good. You are right, no surgery is good, and the thought of brain surgery in any way is scary my friends. But, the BIG lift me up moment is, it’s not life or death five words that made a HUGE difference.
Regarding the tumor on her thyroid, she will have regular ultrasounds and she will be monitored for the next six months to determine a course of action. During my telephone conversation with our daughter, I expressed relief, blessings and prayers answered. But, as soon as we hung up I was on my knees in prayer, in gratitude with tears streaming down my face. I regained my composure and called my hubby with the news. He, of course, was elated. But his immediate disdain over the urgency of the Neurosurgeon’s office was evident.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers, faith, love, and light.
Prayers Answered, I hope you all have an amazing weekend. I’ll keep you posted. xo
