I don't even know how to lead into this story, so I'll just blurt it out. We've been going through a lot here at our house lately. We recently found out that my husband has a brain tumor. His team of doctors are confident it's not cancer, and that they will be able to remove most, if not all of the tumor. He did a week-long stint at MGH in Boston for extended EEG testing a couple weeks ago, and now we wait for a surgery date. During this time, Noah has had some crazy blood sugars and I'm pretty sure the stress and worry about what's going on with his dad is a huge contributing factor, so I'm trying my best to be extremely positive.

But really? I feel like a swimmer caught in the undertow. I honestly don't know how to take on this much.

I don't know how much time I'll have to blog, but I know it helps to have a place to vent it all, so I may just be a little blogging machine. We'll see.

I just read this today, oh mercy. I will be saying the strongest prayers I know how that the tumor is completely benign. Please let me know if there's ANYTHING I can do.

Lea,
I want to let you know that I will be praying for you and your entire family. It is hard enough to go through something like all of this but it is harder on the ones watching it happening. So my prayers are with the entire family.

I believe in the miraculous. I believe in the God of Miracles. I stand with you and do pray for a cure, but greater than jsut a cure, I pray for your Son's healing. I am not a religious person but I do bleieve that I have a relationship with a supernatural God. I am honored to request of Him your son's deliverance from this disease. Be encouraged. I trust your miracle is on its way. :)
