Hi girls. I am coming to you with huge prayer request.

John and I are in Seattle for a medical appointment for me. Tomorrow I will be having a procedure to see how the blood vessels in my brain are working. I have extra vessels on the right side of my brain. They have been causing me headaches for about 18 months. The procedure tomorrow will give the doctors an idea of what happening and how much blood is pumping through the vessels. The procedure will begin at 10:00 am (pacific). Depending on what the Dr finds will determine the next step. There are four possibilities: do nothing and just watch it, actual surgery to remove the mass of vessels, a procedure that would glue the openings to the vessels closed, or a gamma knife that would radiate the vessels.

Phew….I would appreciate all the prayers and good thoughts! My faith is strong, but I’m still a little nervous.

I treasure each of you and the blessings you’ve brought into my life! :)

Karen :)

To quote one of my past preschoolers “Not one of those Karens, but a good Karen”! Haha

UPDATE:

Karen asked that I share with you all that her procedure went well. The Dr was able to get good pictures of the vessels and she expects to hear back from him tomorrow after he consulting with other neurosurgeons. At this time, he is recommending one of two options; Radiation via gamma knife or surgery. She will make further decisions after speaking with the Dr.

She says THANK YOU for all the prayers!

Update from Karen;

Here is an update. We met with the dr yesterday. We found out that the AVM is on the larger side. So on Aug 10 I will be having a procedure that will glue shut the vessels going into the the AVM. Then on the 11th I will be having surgery to have it removed. I’ll be in the hospital for 3-5 days depending on how things go. Phew. It’s a lot…and it’s scary but I know it’s the right thing to do.
I have felt a lot of peace through these past days and I know with all my heart that it’s because of my Farmgirl sister’s prayers.

Big Hugs,
Debbie
