Monday morning after i drove my bus route i was feeling terrible. I was very sick. My mom took me to dr. Boyd's office (Boyd's out of town) dr. Semineaux was his fill in. After assessment we were sent to Christus Shumpert. Tests were ordered and a CT revealed a mass at the lower left quadrant of my brain. I was transferred to LSU/university health. MRI results Tuesday Morning revealed a second mass/tumor in the center of my brain. This second mass is pressing on my sensory center, causing me to be dizzy and have nausea, occasionally throwing up. We are choosing to have the experts at MD Anderson Houston's Neurofibromatosis clinic review My options. I'm scheduled for a consultation Aug.23rd.
I believe God's grace brought us to this very point. Every step of the way has been paved with God's people. They have been helping, encouraging and praying. We can't thank you all enough for your love and support.
This may seem tragic to one at first. Although I am choosing to cling to the fact that God has a plan, a plan for us to prosper and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future.
And... that ALL things work for good to those who trust in the Lord. Often times, some of our most challenging struggles can bring us to some of our most precious gifts. We will accept this season and we will bravely face what is ahead. It may hurt like heck and take us to places we would NEVER imagine.
Again we are trying to stay upbeat and hopeful for what is to come.
