I hope this post finds everyone enjoying their New Year's. While I've read many blog posts today on resolutions, I am writing about something that is weighing heavy on my mind lately. Many of you know that Brenden's brain and spinal surgery back in May was unsuccessful. Not a day goes by that I don't worry about the cyst on his spine. Wondering if today will be the day that it begins pushing against his spine. If he will wake up from his nap and not be able to move his arms or hands. As much as I try to stop worrying, I am a mom....and worrying is what I do. I look at how far he has come, especially in the last few months. And the prospect of another major surgery sickens me. I remember the look on the neurosurgeon's face when he told us he hopes he doesn't have to choose between the two procedures that would be the next step.
This is where you come in. In 9 weeks, March 7th, Brenden will have an MRI to see if there have been any changes. That afternoon, we will meet with Dr. Jane, Jr. to get the results and determine what the next steps should be. I am asking that you begin praying for God's healing touch upon Brenden and the cyst on his spine. I pray that instead of meeting with the doctor to discuss surgery, we can instead leave him scratching his head wondering how there was no sign of the cyst. I know, 9 weeks seems like a long time. But all I'm asking is that you take a few seconds out of your day to lift this up in prayer. We have seen Brenden defy all the odds. We have seen just how mighty our God can be.
