Emergency Surgery

Last night Heather went into an emergency surgery.  She was very unresponsive and so they did a scan on her brain and found out that the radiation she was receiving was causing her brain to swell.  The problem was that there was no where for her brain to swell because the tumors were in the way.  The doctor said that if they did not do surgery then she would die before her scheduled surgery tomorrow.  Many of us thought that Heather would not make it and many came to the hospital to be there for her and for Scott.  However, the surgery went very well.  I guess the doctor came out and told everyone that was waiting that the surgery went well and that her brain was "happy".  

So thank you for all of your prayers for Heather at this time.  I know they have been helping.  I think this whole thing has been emotionally exhausting for everyone, especially my brother.  Last night before her surgery, he said his goodbye's and told her it was okay to go to her Heavenly Father if it was His will.  I just feel so much for my brother at this time.  I get so emotional just thinking about what he must be going through.  I have always been close to him so it kills me to know that he is hurting.  I have learned so much from him and his example through all of this.  I just wish I could be there to support them more. 

I guess before I end this, I should let you know that since I am not there, all of this information is just what I have heard through the grapevine.  However, my information has come from very reliable sources.  Please see Cherise's blog for more detailed updates.  Her link is in previous blog posts.
