After several weeks of testing, treatment, and hospitalization, on Tuesday, June 6 it was discovered that she had a build-up of cerebrospinal fluid that was causing pressure on her brain and eliciting the paralysis, loss of sight and excruciating pain. The next morning our beloved "MC" had brain surgery to insert a "shiny new shunt" (her words) and remove an old, inactive shunt from her childhood that was thought to be no longer needed.
Throughout this entire ordeal, she has remained our optimistic, determined MC, cracking jokes with the doctors and nurses even as she underwent procedures such as a lumbar puncture. They have all come to love her as much as we do.
The medical expenses are piling up quickly. If it is within your capability to give even a small amount we would be very grateful. If you cannot donate, please share this campaign with your friends and family.
Thank you so much for your kindness and love.
