Sisterly Love

It is all I can do to thank everyone so much for all of the prayers and thoughts for my sister, Lindsey. This whole experience has been pretty nerve-wracking for all of us and we are just trying our best to stay positive and not break down. I've watched my sister go through a lot of things, and I know she is strong enough to overcome this. She is one of the most motivated people I know, which I'm sure all of you would agree with. She handles her obstacles amazingly well, better than I could probably do myself after going through so much. We all love her very much and just can't wait for her Cinderella wedding coming up. It is one thing we have to look forward to, and trust me, it's going to be amazing! If anyone can pull this off, its my Mom for sure.

Lindsey went into surgery, which started at about 9:40 this morning. It should take about 2 hours to complete the Biopsy. The team of nurses and doctors were all great and very friendly. They have these really neat like personal blow dryers that you basically plug into your robe and it heats you up, my Mom thought it was quite hilarious. Lindsey's doctor "McDreamy" promised he would do his best about the hair situation, which made Lindsey feel good. She will be staying overnight, but will probably get to head home in the morning.

UPDATE: The biopsy went perfectly as planned, and she pulled through quite smoothly. The doctor gave her about a 1 inch incision, with 10 stitches that will come out in 10 days. The frozen biopsy indicated that there were a lot of hypersensitive cells present and that it is at least a grade 3 glioma (meaning it started in the brain), he can't tell yet if it will be higher. It usually takes about 5-10 days to get the full biopsy results.

We'll keep ya'll updated. (I had to say that since I live in Texas now) :) Thanks so much for the love!

  1. I woke up at about 4:30 this morning thinking about Lindsey. I prayed for her at 4:30 and again when waking about 7:45. Thank you for the postings. Lindsey is amazing!!!
    God is with her, the surgeon, you, your mom and dad, Todd, and the rest of the family!
    God has given all of you much strength.
    I was so glad to see all has gone well this morning! We love your family. Patty & Doug
