Hi, my friends. I have felt your prayers, and I thank you from my heart. Don is still in the hospital. His headache is better. And there is some question as to whether the cause for the ear, and jaw pain is TMJ or trigeminal neuralgia. However, this doesn’t explain the severe head ache. They have done 2 CT scans and a MRI. They told us yesterday that they have found some type of lesion deep in the brain that could or could not be causing the pain. The DR’s. are split as to whether this is abnormal or just a benign bone growth. So today he is having a bone scan…and this will show us if the head has a “hot spot” which would indicate a tumor. In my ‘gut’, I really don’t think it will be anything to worry about. I think when they begin to do the scans…all they will see will be a typical male brain….quite a bit smaller than the female brain…with a large area programmed to hold a remote and sit in front of the tv., a large area that requires 3 square meals a day (this will probably be quite lacking in his case) and an area that longs to be on a boat in the middle of a lake with a fishing pole. Oh and the “love the Lord” and the “ride my motorcyle” area will be lit up nice and bright. 🙂 Whatever DOES show up…we can handle. God has already seen into his head and knows all about it…so if this is what we are up against…He knows that we can do it…with HIS strength, of course.
It is such a comfort to know you are praying for us. My son Adam is staying with him in the mornings, so I can go to work. We have our big spring musicals in a few weeks. So it is so nice he can help me out.
I will let you know as soon as I can get to the computer and post again. I thank God for you.
