This is my Aunt Lynn on the beach with Sydney when she was visiting from Kentucky in May. Last week we got a call that she suddenly didn't have any feeling on the left side of her body, thinking that it was a possible stroke, they rushed her to the hospital to do a slew of tests and scans. After many hours of CT's and MRI's it was determined that she had a small brain tumor that was causing the paralysis. She regained feeling after a few rounds of medication but then her lung collapsed and she has had to have a very uncomfortable chest tube ever since.

This morning they operated on her brain to remove the tumor and I just got a call from my Mom telling me everything went well. She will still have to withstand several rounds of chemo and radiation in the coming weeks to be sure that they got everything but I'm just so relieved right now that she is doing well. It's really hard to be so far away from your family when a crisis like this occurs. I feel so useless here but I know there's nothing I could do there's still frustrating. Any positive thoughts sent her way would be appreciated by all.


  1. I'll keep her in my thoughts and prayers but I'm glad that so far, everything looks good. :)

  2. Really positive thoughts and prayers going up in ypur direction. This is a hard time but your strength and love will help.
