I am sitting all alone talking to God wondering how such bad things happen to such good and innocent people. My heart aches so bad right now for our little girl she has endured so much since her little body blessed us with her presence . I know and everyone that knows her has said God has something special planned for her.
Crystal had a nasapharangeal lipoma which is a benign tumor removed on September 11 , and within 2 months it has come back at an alarming size and has spread throughout her nasal cavity and sinus cavity , back of her throat and down and is pressing against her carotid artery and some other important vessels that lead to her brain . Their is concern as why did it come back so fast and spread so far could this actually be a liposarcoma ( cancerous ) which are often misdiagnosed as a lipoma ( benign) liposarcoma are very rare in fact crystal is the first that Drs have ever heard of having this exact problem . With that being said crystal is facing a couple serious surgeries hear very soon . With these surgeries their is a lot of life changing concerns and possible hemorrhage . Drs are retesting first tumor as a precaution . I am writing this out of a mothers desperate plea for all the prayers we can get for our baby she may be 17 but she is our baby still . Please also pray for her spiritually and physically and for knowledge for the Drs.
I know God will see us through this trying time and he will be glorified through it all , I pray that during this time crystal will find that God has not forsaken her and that he is there and all she needs to do is call on his name and trust him .
Thank you so much everyone for praying for our family and Crystal .
