A Little Surgery

We have less than three more weeks to tease mom that she has something wrong with her head... hahaha

She will be going in on August 9th to remove the tumor. It is about the size of a golf ball and functioning as her pituitary gland which controls the hormones. Funny thing is, mom does not have one side effect and the Doctors are baffled.

She has had two MRI's and several appointments with specialist. Her Surgeon wants it out but is leaving it up to her since there is a risk. I am sure she will be glad when it's all over.

She will be in surgery all day and then in the hospital for three days to recover. It will be about 4 weeks until she is able to attempt being normal. She will come out with less in and on her head. Were hoping that they leave some of her hair.

As for the family, we are scared, well I am =). I sometimes find myself scared and panicked and then sometimes the peace of God is so strong that I can't remember why I was scared in the first place. We have put her in God's hands... yet it is scary. Sometimes His way is not the way we want it to go.

One thing I know is that He has never failed me. Not in twenty-four years. And He never will. No matter what happens.

Hey, enjoyed looking around your site today. Sorry about the difficulty your mom is having. I will be praying with you for a successful outcome of her surgery.

Keep the faith. Trust in God. He really and truly is in control of our lives. Comforting, huh.

Blessings to you and yours.

Sis. Buxton, thank you for your prayers. I found your blog a few months ago and have enjoyed reading about the church in Lake Havasu and your growing family.

Blessings to you!
