An Update on Sydney

I am really behind on my blogging lately and realized that I hadn't updated everyone on Sydney's bump.  

On the 27th of June, we went in and met with a pediatric surgeon to discuss all of the results from Sydney's ultrasound, MRI scan and x-ray.  The doctor was very nice and reassuring.  While she wants to send the scans to a pediatric radiologist for another opinion, she does not want to operate.  Her educated guess is that Sydney had some sort of trauma there, where she possibly bruised the muscle, and her body sort of over-healed itself.  

For now she wants to just monitor the bump to see if it changes in size {hopefully it gets smaller}.  We will go in and meet with her about once a month.  We are grateful for your prayers and are so thankful that it is nothing worse.


I have two more prayer requests for you.  A friend of mine from high school {and sneaky blog reader}, Natalie, and her family just moved into a new home in Indianapolis.  A few days after moving in, a giant tree limb came crashing down out of nowhere while they were working in their yard.  She has a large cut and a broken leg, her husband has a sprained ankle and her dad has broken ribs, a broken vertebrae, and a crushed heel.  Her sweet daughter, Hazel, has a fractured skull and is sportin' the purplest black-eye I've ever seen.  Please pray for a speedy recovery for all of them.

And, I just found out last night that Olivia's friend from SLO, Tessa,  is undergoing numerous tests to confirm {or we hope rule out} the doctor's suspicions that she has leukemia.  We are so saddened to hear about this and have been praying for strength for her family while they await the test results.  I know they would appreciate your prayers as well.  You can read more about her story here.

Hug your babies extra tight tonight.

Words can't express how thankful I am that nothing serious was wrong with Sydney. I hate the fact that she had to go through all that she did to find that out, but I will take the good news and thank God for it any day. She is the light of my life. I love her so much. I thank God every day for BOTH of my grand daughters. I am so blessed.

My heart and prayers go out to Tessa and her family. Praying for strength to get through this difficult time in their lives.
