Dear God, Ashley and I Need You
Tonight I am anxious and worried because tomorrow Ashley has an MRI under anesthesia. The MRI is being done to check the status of the three brain tumors that were identified two years ago.
When the tumors were first identified, Ashley had MRIs every 4-6 months. But, because they never seemed to be growing or changing, the neurosurgeon suggested going to one year intervals. This has been an extremely long year.
I've not noticed anything that would make me think the tumors were growing or doing anything different than they have the last two years. Both her neurosurgeon and neurologist do not feel the tumors are the source of Ashley's seizures. But still...there are things in my baby's brain that shouldn't be there.
I probably won't get a status report from the MRI until we see the doctor in two weeks (unless, of course, the person who reads the MRI thinks otherwise). No news will be good new, right??
Please keep my sweet daughter in your prayers tomorrow. General anesthesia scares me. Brain tumors scare me. My fears will not subside until I have her home with me tomorrow afternoon.
