Momma Update

I wanted to give y'all another update on my momma-sita as well as ask for prayers.

My mom indeed does have another brain aneurysm; however it’s so tiny that it’s unable to be coiled at the moment. She will go back for updates and scans continuously throughout the next few months to make sure the aneurysm does not grow.

Her brain tumor has slightly grown, however it’s still in an area where they are not able to remove or biopsy it.

My mother has an appointment in Dallas on May 10th. Over 5 years ago my mother was told she would be in a wheel chair before long; she's made it this long and Dr's are amazed and astonished that she is still walking, her bones in her feet are disintegrating and although she has no feeling in her feet it hurts her so bad to walk; she is in constant pain due to her chronic/narrowing spine (bones are squeezing down on her nerves) She also has 11 vertebraes that are bulging or herniated right now. Her local back Dr. told her that 'no surgeon will touch her, and her back is too complicated'...

When she called me advising me of her upcoming appointment she told me 'Tiffany, I have to go to Dallas...it's reality that I will be in a wheelchair soon, and the day I have grand-babies and there able to run up to me and ask why I'm in this wheelchair I want to be able to tell them I did everything I could and be happy about where I am, Dallas may not be able to help me...but at least I can say I tried'..

My heart breaks for her, I hurt because she hurts and would give anything to see the sunshine in her eyes the way I used to...her emotions are everywhere, one day she is happy the next day she is depressed; I personally can’t say I blame her with everything she’s going through. My mom is a very strong women to endure all she has and to keep going...this is a hurdle we will get through, with patience and God's guidance we will get through this!

Please continue to keep my mother in your prayers; I will keep you updated on new information.

Oh Tiffany... I'm so sorry. It makes me so sad to even hear about this. God is amazing though. I've witnessed true miracles. Praying for you as always.

I remember when the Dr's told her that, AND when they told her she would only have about 5 yrs to live with her first anyuerism. She is indeed a very strong woman and my prayers remain with her!
