Husband's Cousin has just been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
« on: December 22, 2011, 12:19:13 AM »
My husband just received an email from his mother stating that his cousin, Beth Ann was diagnosed with a brain tumor today after she stumbled and fell and had garbled speech at her office today.

Please pray for her - and my husband's family, they have suffered a lot of loss and bad news this season.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

St. Pantaleimon, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

We received another email today - My husband's cousin was thought to have a brain tumor, but it was found to be a bleed, instead.  She is conscious - went through surgery a little earlier today to remove the blood - and should go home as good as new very soon.  They expect a complete recovery.  

:)

Thank you so much for your prayers!  Thanks be to God!

May the Lord be merciful and restore her to good health!

Please keep us updated!

Prayers for Beth Ann, that the Unmercenary Physicians, Ciosmas and Damien, grant wisdom to her doctors in their care and diagnosis of her. Prayers also that the Lord look with blesed favor on her and restore her fully to health and well-being and to the loving arms of her family.

We finally heard concerning Beth Ann - she woke up from her second surgery able to move her arm! :)  Thanks be to God! 

We didn't get any other details than that and haven't heard any thing more. . .so I'm guessing she'll be going home pretty soon. 

Thank you so much for your prayers! 
In His Mercy,
BethAnna
