Hi, sorry I have been out of town for a few days, so I wasn't able to update this. You may have known this already but Lisa was able to come home yesterday. They had taken her off the breathing monitor and other bells and whistles and said that she was able to go home. She will need physical therapy on her left arm and leg because of some weakness, and she is also having trouble seeing out of her left eye. The tumor was on her left side and was affecting that side of her body.
We stopped in to see Lisa on our way out of town and she was in good spirits... and had a room full of people who love her visiting for the evening. She showed us the scar and filled us in on what the Doctors have told her. It was good to see her talking and I know she loved seeing so many friends caring for her.

Lis is doing pretty good. They had a long night and Lisa had a pretty bad headache and struggled with pain on and off. She was feeling alot of pressure which I am sure because of swelling from the surgery. The monitors kept going off so that made it hard for all to sleep. But thank goodness she is stable and talking alot.
Lisa is looking forward to going to the 10th floor where she is used to "hanging out". Gail said that visitors are welcome, I am sure that would brighten Lisa's day to see some of you!

Thanks for the prayers.

good update

After surgery Lisa was taken to ICU so that they could watch her carefully. They expect her to move out of there in the morning.
She is doing so good...Gail said she is talking to everyone and lifting her head. She is also wanting to eat something. These are all good signs! She has gone through so many surgeries and it seems each time she comes out smiling! Happy to have it over and knowing that God is with her!
Gail is not able to have her ph on in ICU, so she said she would give us an update in the morning when they move to a different room.

Thanks for the prayers.
Surgery will begin at 12:30 today up on the 8th floor. Gail said that Lisa is very scared and I can imagine that the rest of them are too. Pray the God will give them peace that passes understanding.
We all send you our love, Lisa.

urgent prayer

Just got some very hard news about Lisa. She has been suffering from headaches lately and the Dr. determined that she has cancer on the side of her brain. They are acting quickly and have already headed up to Deornbecher and are preparing to have surgery tomorrow. They are a little in shock and very scared. The family would appreciated you all keeping this new development in your prayers. I will let you know more as I hear.

Thanks, Sherie
