Tumor Is a Bad Word

by Ali on July 30, 2011

This is not how I wanted to make a crafty bloggy comeback. I wanted to find some pockets of time somewhere and churn out projects complete with great pictures and pithy posts. Someone once said “You can’t always get what you want.” We all know they were right.

Something other than new knitting has me typing this morning…

Our family has a major prayer request.

Our oldest son, Ian (sometimes referred to as The Teenager), was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Needless to say, this is not something that we were prepared for. I’m pretty sure no one is ever prepared for that.

You can read more about it over at my an ordinary mom blog, but the short version is that the neurosurgeon is very optimistic that this tumor is low-grade or benign, judging by the look of it on the MRI.

We covet your prayers for our son, for our family.

Thank you, my friends.

My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family, but especially for your son. It is a frightening experience just to hear the words, tumor and/or growth. I have been where you are – my daughter had a tumor that I was told could be 50% non-malignant and 50% malignant. A two hour operation turned into five and for those five hours; however it turned out to be the 50% that were non-malignant. My daughter was fortunate. My your son have the some results.

Ian and your family are in my prayers. I'm grateful that the neurosurgeon is optimistic – that must be very reassuring to all of you.
