Now Accepting Miracles

Da Goddess @ 04:00

One of my best childhood friends got horrific news Friday. Her daughter, age 18, was diagnosed with a large brain tumor.

Poor kid had been having bad headaches for the last year. The pain would ebb a bit but then come back worse than the last time. For the past three weeks, the pain had only gotten worse. By Thursday, I had said she should go to the emergency room. She’d been taking a lot of over-the-counter medications trying to get rid of the headache but it sounded like she was getting a bit toxic from all of it. “Take her to the ER. They won’t turn her away and they have social workers who’ll help her apply for emergency Medicaid.” So, she finally got to the ER on Friday and the news was devastating.

The tumor is large. I’m not sure exactly where it is in her brain, but a tumor in your brain is never good. I’m just waiting for more information and praying that this is operable and that this young woman gets a chance to live a long, healthy, happy life.

Prayers for Heidi are appreciated. Miracles are always welcome, too.

  2. That is bad news, but these days a lot of these are operable and recovery is good. The headaches suggest it is somewhere where it is applying pressure to something – the brain itself doesn’t have pain sensors …

    Prayers will be with her.

  3. Thank you so much for the prayers! Now that she’s on pain medication she’s able to eat and her arm numbness isn’t freaking her out as much. Currently, she’s having an MRI done and they should know more about what’s going on.
