But, clearly I still have more recovering to do before I am functioning again. One positive note, the doctor in CA told me that because of my facial paralysis, the swelling would be either delayed or not as bad as normal, because my glands don't work and don't send the water signals properly. So, the good news is my swelling is at a minimum, though the lovely, flattering photos below will show that the bruising has set in.
I wanted to give an update on my sister, Tami, and her baby, Kurt. He is only a month old now and went in for a CT scan Thursday to check on the status of his CCAM tumor. Well, it is bigger than they thought (4.5 x 3.5 2.5 centimeters) and in a lower lobe of his lung. What's worse, it is still growing, fairly rapidly. The surgeon told Tami to pay attention to his condition constantly and if ever ANYTHING appears of out the ordinary to take him into the hospital. They will have to do surgery, but they hope to wait until he is a little bigger and stronger. Please include them in your prayers so we can have miracles for little Kurt, too!
While you are at it, please pray for my sister, Kristi, as well. She is in the process of being diagnosed for a still unknown disorder that is causing her to grow cysts throughout her body and put on massive weight gain. She is tired all the time and her hormones and entire body is out of whack. The process of figuring it out is very long, as there are literally thousands of potential causes they are sorting through. This is difficult both physically and emotionally as they try to figure out why her body is fighting against itself.
So, if you have enough energy left to exert on our family, please add my sisters to your list! Thank you! I love you all!
