Lots of Drama Lately

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with 3:16 team REALTY ~ Locally-owned Frisco TX Real Estate Co.

Lots of Rain Love showed recently and it seems like my life feels like a soap opera. First with being sick as a dog, then another personal battle with the loss of a pregnancy and now, helping my brother fight for his life and legs.

Katerina Gasset called me last night (Thursday) as I was rushing to the Emergency Room. I distraughtly told her, I can't talk right now but my brother had just been rushed to the hospital because he lost the strength of his legs, which no injury or trauma.

My brother had always complained about sore backs. We just thought he pulled his back playing basketball.

Truth be told, last night and in the wee early morning, we found out that he has an aggresive growth tumor that compressed on his spinal cord. It had eaten away about 90% of that portion of the cord. The neurosurgeon was surprised he could still walk in his condition.

My brother is a healthy 24-year old who hasn't been sick much. Not even the flu. He is one of the nicest people you'd ever meet and he loves life. Every 2 weeks, he donates platlets.

Apparently, his sore backs were possibly the growth of the tumor. But who would have known.

Being 24, he also thought he was immortal and felt that medical insurance was unnecessary. That's another battle we have to deal with.

But we are eternally grateful to the Presbyterian Plano hospital to save my brother today. Treating him even without insurance. The ugly word we hear alot about.

My brother continues to need healing prayers - for those who believe.

As for me, I'm going to bed. 30 minutes in 2 days can do things to your brain function and vision.

Thank you for your love and support on AR and my FB.

Loreena- Your brother and family is in my prayers. He is lucky to have you in his life. I know what you mean about rough times. I have always heard "when it rains it pours"- I am going through something similar with some family members. I love your attitude of focusing on others. Hang in there.
