Natalie’s Progress

Hi Friends:

Well we are 2 weeks away from the removal of 1 of the brain tumors that she is suffering from. They will go through her nose and drill a hole giving the Neurosurgeon access, he will then remove as much of the tumor as possible but because we found out it is sitting on her carotid arteries and her optic nerves he will not be able to remove it all, she then will need to return for the gamma knife radiation. Her surgery is scheduled for September 14th and she begins school on September 23.

Natalie is bound and determined to begin school on time, which I pray to God she is able to do as it will occupy her mind. However, if she is not able to; the school has a wonderful program through the disabled student association where note takers can sit in her class on her behalf and take all of the notes, etc. needed. She is also going to email her professors.

Right now I am having such a hard time emotionally dealing with this. I am unsure that I have what it takes to go through any more of this heartache with her. I know that I will find it if I need to, but this is so hard to watch your child go through all of this pain and suffering. I wish that it was me and not her. 😡 😡
