A few weeks ago, my dear friend and critique partner Karen slurred her words.
After many doctor's appointments and possible diagnoses, the doctors discovered a brain mass in the back of her head, attached to the upper brain stem. It is inoperable. But there is hope.
Today, surrounded by friends, her husband, and three teenage sons, she is undergoing a biopsy to determine exactly what the mass is so they can decide on a treatment.
Unfortunately, the biopsy carries its own risks. But I'm confident in her team of doctors that the surgery will be successful and they will bring her back to us.
So I humbly ask, for all those who read this today, please offer a prayer for my friend Karen.
It would be much appreciated.
