I just cannot thank you all enough for all of your prayers, for myself and Rhonda. Going to give some incredible, God ordained updates on us both.
She is incredible. So brave! They are sitting her up for a couple minutes and she stood, assisted, for a minute. She looks so much better than a couple days ago. Closer to her old self. She does have tough road ahead, and our family covets your prayers for a full recovery, mental and physical.
10 days ago, I met with an additional surgeon for a consult for surgery-if there was anything he could do. Never hurts to get a 5th consult. 😉
He walked into the room, completely confident. Big perfect smile. It is in Newport Beach people. He said he can resect close to 90% of it, if my sagittal sinus, (where my clot/ occlusion is), is completely blocked. If not, a big fat no. I made it home Wednesday morning and had the CT’s Thursday. I needed him to read ASAP so that he would be able to make a determination before my deadline to change insurance. This morning, I received a call…
It is BLOCKED completely.
Happy tears! He wants to do the surgery as soon as possible, which would be January-when new insurance is takes effect. My heart is so thankful for the clear path God has blessed us with. He will go through a different part of my skull so that we don’t have to deal with the leaky incision debacle all over again. This, in addition to him not disassembling the titanium mesh that is covering a third of my skull, makes the surgery what I will call hopeful! I am so thankful. So so thankful. Thank you for lifting Rhonda and myself up to our Almighty.
