"Lydia was fabulous ..."

- Jenn & Lydia, clowning around in February -


"We just got home from an exhausting day at Hopkins.. The day went well. Lydia was fabulous with everything they put her through. Her surgeon seems very optimistic about the surgery. He does not believe that the tumor is attached to anything so the hope is that he should be able to remove the whole thing.

Her surgery is set for Monday (the 5th) at 9:30. We were told the surgery would take 'a long time, all day,' but he would not give us an estimate of exactly how long. She will be in the PICU overnight, then if she's stable, she will be moved to the children's floor the next day.

They are expecting her to be in the hospital for 5 days, then 2 weeks recovery at home. After the tumor is removed, they will have it tested so we know exactly what we're dealing with and if further treatment will be necessary. As of right now, he does not believe that it is cancer.

We're mentally and physically exhausted but also at peace. God has been so good to us, giving strength for each step along the way. Our friends here have really pulled together around us.

Please continue to pray and feel free to pass this along to as many prayer warriors as you know!


  1. Hi Lydia ,

    My Name is Laurent and I'm from France ..... I used to work with your grand dad and when I heard was was happening it's like I was going over my own experience 25 years ago when I was 10 years old.

    In summary next Monday you will have a whole family in france supporting you crossing this hurdle with the help of the doctors and your Family.

    You will have to be strong and if you want to share your feelings afterwards than I will be more than happy to listen to you and share your if this can help you in the recovery process.

    Good Luck to you.


  2. Love, hugs, kisses and prayers to all of you.

  3. Praise God for all he has done today and leading up to today!Continuing to pray that the tumor is NOTHING when they biopsy it!Hugs, love and kisses to all of you.
