Becky's Update

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I don't know if any of you remember from previous posts a long time ago. My niece, Becky, had a brain tumor and we weren't sure what the prognosis would be.
She had radiation zeroing in on the tumor. She will always be deaf in her left ear, her left eyelid won't work on it's own. The eyelid always stays open. She has eye drops for dryness of the eye, can manually close her eyelid or wear her eye patch.
The left side of her mouth will always droop down a little, but you wouldn't know that unless you knew her.
The GOOD NEWS is that she just had her 6-month follow-up and the tumor has shrunken. She will be going every 6 months for follow-up to see if it keeps shrinking. It won't change her conditions because the nerves are destroyed, but I'm hoping the tumor keeps shrinking. Right now, there will be no new radiation as the course of treatment she had is supposed to keep working on that area.
Thank you to all.

    Blessings to Becky. This is a hard road and she is brave and strong. I always feel like some of our most SPECIAL and beautiful spirits come to earth and consciously pick the hardest life roads to be an example of true grit and fierce determination for the rest of us to observe.

In so doing they force us to count our own blessings and open our heart to love and support them...the one's who need us the most.

You are a wonderful auntie to acknowledge her struggles and to tell her story. This in turn brings big prayers from all of your sparkling friends for goodness and comfort to wing her way.

Our stories are our connection to each other opening the door to the only REAL thing that matters...and that is compassion and love.

You've got it right my beautiful friend...you've got it right..indeed! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
