So many of you are responding with emails, love, and prayers, and it is all so very much appreciated!
I'm feeling the need, though, to clarify something that I mentioned in my previous blog entry. The doctor used the word "benign," but he actually said that "because the tumor had not grown, that's a good sign for it being benign." No biopsy has ever been done, so we don't know anything for sure, but I was just simply taking comfort in those words.
Heath slept well last night for the most part, but his shoulder and lower abdomen area especially are very sore. He had me pull him up from bed this morning, and he says he feels as though he's been hit by a Mack truck. His tongue feels worse today, and the taste in his mouth is causing him to resort to Mountain Dew.
Haley's taking one for the team and offered to stay home from school today with him. Such a sacrifice. Harris and I attended our last ever elementary Christmas -- technically "Winter Arts Sharing" -- program this morning, and Keaton stole the show at the end with a precious little solo part. It's been kind of a rough morning for us, but that put smiles on our faces!
The call has been made to the seizure doctor's office, so now we're just awaiting a return call. Once again, your prayers mean so much to us at this time. Thank you all so very much.
