In mid April, our 20 year old granddaughter went to the doctor for swollen glands. She has a very rapid heart rate so while there, the doctor did an EKG and sent her to the hospital for more testing since it was over 155 BPM. While at the hospital, they did more EKG’s and an exray. That should a 4″ tumor in her left lung. She has been having test after test and when she had the biopsy, it came back inconclusive since the tumor is so large and the needle biopsy was so small. We live in South Carolina, Alexandra lives in Ohio and last week we went up to meet with her surgeon. He is very thorough in explaining everything and went over all her tests. It was determined that the tumor is from the top of her lung, down to her T7 vertebra and pressing on her aorta. He scheduled her for an MRI of her spine to see if any of her spinal cord nerves are affecting the tumor. That test is being done right now as I’m writing this. As soon as the results come back, surgery will be scheduled, the surgeon is looking at the beginning of August. Our bags are packed and as soon as we get the date, hubby and I are off to Ohio to be with our precious granddaughter.
One of our clients from work, presented us with a beautiful Prayer Quilt that was made by the quilting group of her church and signed my many. It is so beautiful and when we showed it to our friend at the business next to ours, he asked if he could take it to his church since they have a prayer chain for her.
When he returned it last Monday, it was loaded with prayers and well wishes. Since then, our customers have signed messages on it and we will take it with us so Alexandra can be wrapped in love and prayers while in the hospital.
I know prayers work and God will be with Alexandra and also be guiding the hands of her surgeons. As soon as we get the call with the date, we will be on our way to Ohio.
