Big Day!

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

There has been a lot of speculation as to why I ended up with a brain tumor. One theory floating around, is the fact that I allowed two cats into the family. Maybe just the evidence of a brain tumor and not the cause.

Yikes!

 

For the last few months, a close friend of mine has been telling me that the Levi from last year would kick my butt, and that it would be pretty easy.

I never thought I would blog. Mostly because I didn’t have anything to say. The other reason would be in respect to any teacher that tried to teach me English. I feel now like I have something to say, and I can use the tumor as an excuse for poor grammar. I feel like I’m going to get a lot of mileage out of this tumor bit, my poor wife!

There have been so many miracles so far, that I feel like I need to write them down. Also, my wife is getting tired of repeating the same thing several times a day.

I woke up the morning of the event a different person. I was a much better version of myself. It was so evident, that I thought several times throughout the day, did God transform my mind. I have been asking for transformation in my mind, and pleading with God to do it because I don’t see being able to do it myself. A co-worker has been telling me lately that little things don’t have to bug me like they do. Ha, as she is coloring with squeaky markers right next to me while watching a documentary. Oh yeah, the other person in the room is clearing his throat incessantly. Sure, that won’t bug me some day.
Oh yeah, that morning! I had the thought, he did it, I’m different.

Back to Tijuana!


Here we are again. 🙂 This is our third trip to International Biocare Hospital in Tijuana; the first two being in 2017 and 2018. After comparing MRI results over the last six years, we have reason to believe that his treatment here was beneficial, so we are back for more. Levi is on his fourth out of 20 days of IV treatment. So far so good.

We are thankful for the continued improvement in movement and strength since surgery. A handful of PT sessions, and work around the house and property has proven to increase Levi’s coordination and abilities. He is just about back to where he was prior to surgery. Praise God.

His biggest struggle continues to be sleep… It seems to come and go and we haven’t quite figured out why. He has successfully weaned off of one out of five anti-seizure medication‘s, and would like to start tapering off another. It would be nice to get some sleep first however.

One of our biggest praises is that Levi has not had any seizures since before surgery in July. And this is by far the longest stretch that he has gone over the last five years.

Thank you for your continued prayers as we seek God’s direction in health and holiness and how to serve Him. May God bless you all with the knowledge and peace of our Savior.
