Our 7th Blessing....Waiting in China!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I spoke with Emme's Neurosurgeon yesterday. They are not 100% on a diagnosis for her yet. BUT they do NOT think it is what they first told us!!! That means they don't think the mass was malignant!!!!!!! This is GOOD news! Praise Him!!!
They are leaning towards a blue nevus. They just sent it off to an expert in this area who works in San Francisco. We should hear from him in a couple of weeks. She then will have a MRI in 3 months to see if the part of the mass that was left has grown. If it hasn't grown she will be measured for a plate that will replace the back of her skull that was removed (which is pretty much the entire back of her head).
I am so thankful to be back home with my family for a while! I honestly can't believe everything that has happened since we got home January 22nd. And I am greatly enjoying the everyday normal routine of this crazy household.
I once again want to thank those of you who have lifted Emme and our family up to God this past month. I am humbled by the outpouring of kindness from my brothers and sisters in Christ and from so many I have never met before. Beyond humbled. People are praying for our sweet daughter all over the United States. Thank you. Words can't express what this has meant to us and to Emme.
Please continue to pray God's healing over Emme...pray the mass will not continue to grow. And praise our Everlasting Father tonight!!!! Here's a picture of two giggling sisters!
I will keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body will rest secure...Ps.16:8-9
