Thoughts & Prayers

Heather's Grandmother is in surgery as I type this. They are all there waiting at the hospital. I can only imagine the thoughts and feelings they are all having. It has been about 2 weeks since her Grandmother went into the hospital and they have been waiting and preparing for surgery.

She is having brain surgery. They are taking three parts of her skull off, in order to remove a brain tumor that is the size of a lime on the front of her brain. There are risks, as with any surgery.

We know the surgery will go fine though, Estelle is a tough cookie and nothing is going to take her down. BUT please pray for the surgery to go well, for them to do all they have to do. Please also pray for a speedy recovery. She is tired of being in the hospital for all this time. I can't blame her either. They aren't sure how soon she will be able to come home after the surgery, it depends on how she is feeling and acting and what kind of therapy she will need. She may be in the hospital for a while longer and/or go to a nursing home for more therapy before returning home. Although the surgery is scary, some of the hardest parts is having her away from home for so long from everyone.

Please pray for Heather, her Grandmother, her Grandfather, her mom, her uncle, her brother and the rest of the family ~ for strength, health, healing and a super recovery.

~Heather I'm always thinking of you and Stelle, I love you and I'm always here for you. I know that Granny will be okay... I know it in my heart of hearts, have faith and believe that you will see her at home soon. xoxoxoxo

Thank you everyone.
