Update from the Doc

Doctor Taylor was amazed at how good I looked, my ability to have a conversation with her that for the most part made sense (I did struggle for some words), the fact that I'm not having any major headaches, and my level of energy is high. She was very pleased to hear that my sleep patterns are more normal and the behavior issues have pretty much gone away. She was also pleased to see how well I'm getting around. Last time I saw her I had difficultly walking out of her office and I had to ask for a wheel chair.

Answered prayers???? I believe so. Am I healed???? I don't know... I doubt it because I still have the vision issues and word finding issues, and I can feel the pressure in my brain. Am I doing better today than two weeks ago. YES. Thank you for praying for me. God is at work. He's listening to you, and he is giving me good days.

I learned that I can start the chemo back up without needing to also go back on the same regimen of others meds. Before we do anything though Dr. Taylor has requested an MRI to see what's going on with the "return of the tumor". I'll know more after I meet with her next Friday. I'll also have a more definitive answer on my ability to fly after they see how the tumor is behaving in my brain.

Gotta go... Ants have invaded my room and I need to go suck them up with the vacuum and set out the little Ant Motels so they'll take the disguised poison back to their farm.

  1. Lindsey, I write this with tears in my eyes. It is so not fair that you have to go through this again. In college we lived at the Wesley House together. I remember you telling me your story about your brain tumor and thanking God that you made it out as strong as you are. I also remember waking early to work out with you a few times... Lindsey I graduated that year,I moved to TX, married the man I thought I was in love with, we had a beautiful child who is almost 3 now. The marriage did not last, I moved back to MO in 2009, Divorce is the hardest thing I have ever gone through, when I was the saddest and hopeless, God brought you to my mind and I thought "if she can get through a brain tumor then I can get through this divorce and single motherhood". and I am getting through it, and there are many joys of single motherhood. I am going to seminary full time and working at 2 churches part time...ever so slowly getting to God's dream of becoming a pastor. Lindsey you provided strength for me when I was weak, and I hope that I can at the least provide the strength of prayer for you and your family as you fight through this tumor again! I enjoy reading all of your updates, and I will check back daily to read more! You are in my prayers! with Love, Becky Mulford.
