Surgery #4

The amazing Kayla.

The amazing Kayla.

Yes…you read it right.  My sweet Kayla will be going in for another surgery tomorrow – May 15 at 11:30 am.

I mentioned in a previous post that there was a pooling occurring in the area where they removed that large tumor.   The neurosurgeon decided that based on the MRI and bloodwork that it would be best to go in and determine what is pooling.

The best scenario would be that they find it to be a cranial hemotoma (which can be drained) vs an infection of the bone (which creates additional complications).  Please add your prayers for Ms Kayla.

She will be kicking off the morning before we head to the hospital with an appearance on Breakfast Television (between 7:00-7:30 am) in her role as a High Hopes Coach for Kids Cancer Care.  She truly is an amazing young woman.

    My prayer for you and Kayla today is absolute ease. May they enter her delicate but courageous skull, find blood not infection, drain it off effortlessly, sew her back up with fairy dust like comfort …. And take her to her room where she can be held once again in her strong mother’s soft embrace.

    Love, M & P
