Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.   On Monday, July 29, I had an unexpected seizure.  After a CT brain scan and MRI, it was determined that I have a golf ball size mass on the right side of my brain.  I am home now and will be until Thursday, August 8, when we head to UCH Aurora for a clinic pre-operation meeting and then surgery on the morning of Friday, August 9.  Right now there are a lot of unknowns.  On Friday, the neurosurgeon will biopsy the mass and depending on the results, they may proceed with surgery to remove the mass.  We hope to keep you updated on this website as things progress.  We ask for continued prayers and guidance from the Lord for Mike, Izzy, and I and for our neurosurgeons and medical providers.  My specific prayers this past week have been and continue to be that Mike and I glorify and honor God throughout this entire process.  We have already witnessed his care, provision, and guidance since this all began last Monday afternoon.  We ask for continued prayers that we would Trust the Lord and have peace in Him.
