My older sister has a non malignant brain tumor. She has had it for a little over six years. It has just sat there not growing, not causing any problems. This year the pesky little thing started growing. And now because it is getting a little to close to the spinal column and her cochlear nerve something has to be done about it.
So, starting Monday for the next six weeks, Monday thru Friday she will go in for radiation. I know she is going to sail right through this and we will get back to enjoying our summer. But because this is radiation to her brain, there might be some swelling, which will cause some nauseous and vomiting as the brain swells in reaction.
So my friends, my blogging buddies, I am asking you to lift my sister up these next six weeks. She is scheduled to go on an annual mission trip the first weekend in August. It's going to be close, but she dearly loves to do this mission trip. She goes to east St. Louis to take school supplies and back packs and school uniforms that have been purchased with donations to the children of that area. She always prepares a craft for the women involved, it is her specialty and I want her to be there to do it.
Please lift my sister up to our heavenly father, so that she will be able to serve him on the mission trip to St. Louis this year.
