New news!

They are monitoring Reese for the next week.
MRI and Surgery will be on Wednesday, March 31st.
Please keep Reese and the entire Ladwig family in your prayers!

I wanted to confirm our feelings about surgery... When I posted it we got a lot of "positive" comments. Ryan and I don't feel that way about it. Here is why...
They are unable to determine if this mass is actually causing the physical problems that she is experiencing. If they said this would make her all better we'd jump on it in a second. But that is just not the case. We could put our little girl through a brain surgery and in the end it wasn't even the cause and we'd be back at square one. I hope that came out clear. Also, when we asked how risky this procedure is on a scale of 1-10 the surgeon told us an 8. They make an insision, remove the back of her skull, lift up the back part of her brain and then are able to remove the entire gland. This isn't an easy surgery. The surgeon contacted us this afternoon and they have scheduled another MRI tomorrow to confirm this decision. We are hoping to have a confident answer either way. She will also have an EEG tomorrow afternoon.

6 friends had to say...:

Lord Jesus Christ, Good Shepherd of the sheep, you gather the lambs in your arms and carry them in your bosom; We commend to your loving care this child, Princess Reese, relieve her pain, guard her from all danger, restore to her your gifts of gladness and strength, and raise her up to a life of service to you. O God, the strength of the weak and the comfort of sufferers, mercifully accept our prayers, and grant to your servant Princess Reese, the help of your power, that her sickness may be turned into health, and our sorrow into joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God bless and keep you safe and in his care.

Ask the Dr.s what they would do if she was their little girl - that might help you make a decision. (just a thought.)

but, as I am positive, I believe strongly in my heart, she will be ok, recover and do all the little things girls do in their lifetime.
thank God they found this out while she is so young and then can lead a normal life!
hang in there Ryan and Candi and everyone. Wish i was there to help, support, bring food, pray, play or anything you need. but, I sent out an massive email to all my friends and she is on the international prayer list.
