My oldest sister Sarah is in the hospital today. Sarah is a single mother of three handsome, very funny boys. Sarah is beautiful and very funny herself. She is also very brave and going through a lot right now. A few weeks back Sarah started to have some troubling symptoms. After doing some research on the internet she thought she may have Lupus. Then she also began having seizures in her sleep. When her bloodwork came back negative for Lupus, she went to see a neurologist. They found that she had a tumor in her brain. This tumor is about the size of a lime, located in her frontal lobe on the right side of her brain.
She is scheduled to have an operation to remove this tumor this Friday, December 8th. Even on the medicine she was given to supress her seizures she has continued to have them. Monday night and early yesterday her symptoms have become so badthat she called her doctor to see what she could do. He found her a room at the surgical center in Phoenix and they admitted her yesterday, 3 days early. They are doing tests and keeping an eye on her there for now. Everyone please keep your thoughts and prayers with Sarah and her boys. We are all optimistic, but also very shaken up. Thank you.
