My youngest daughter has a huge couple of weeks ahead of her. Some background information on Holly. She was born with a plexiform neurofibroma. It had managed to grow around and between her spine and brain stem. She had chemotherapy when she was very young and the tumor stopped growing and hasn't grown since. However, she continues to grow so it's like a tree beside a fence post. The more the tree grows, the more pressure on the tree and the post. We knew for a long time that one day she would need major surgery to correct this. She has had trouble with her major motor skills her entire life. She has been able to walk by holding onto things for a long time but recently she started crawling and scooting again. So Dr's did an MRI and saw there was more pressure on her spine and brain stem. The Chief Neurosurgeon has waited over the years for her to grow so everything would be bigger. He says the smaller the child the more difficult the surgery because everything is so small. After seeing last week's MRI he said he couldn't wait any longer.

Holly had surgery 2 weeks ago but things didn’t go as we had hoped. The surgeon went in at the back of her neck and removed the tumor that was at the back of her spine and brain stem. While the brain stem has more room now it allowed the spine and brain stem to curve and also twist a little bit. She has been on a ventilator since the surgery (2 and 1/2 weeks) and while she can feel people touch her arms and legs she can barely move them. This is the most difficult thing my wife and I have ever faced, even more so than with Heather when she fought brain cancer just 2 years ago. Holly can't move and she can't talk due to the ventilator. She try's to talk but it is very difficult to figure out what she wants. Her mother and I can't do much more than wipe off her little, silent tears.

This Tuesday the 26th they will go back in and remove some bone from the spine to allow the spine and brain stem to be at a more normal angle and “un-twist”. Surgeon will also put Holly in a halo. Next Thursday ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) surgeon will take her off the ventilator and do surgery for a tracheotomy. Neurosurgery will then go through the back of her throat and remove most of the rest of the tumor. Sometime the following week neurosurgery will go back in one more time and fuse her spine to the base of her skull. She won’t be able to turn her head anymore, (she couldn’t turn it much before) but will have to turn her body at the waist instead of turning her head.

This is a huge and delicate series of surgeries. Cathy and I had a care conference last week with 11 different Dr.'s and caregivers. There is a possibility that she could be paralyzed and on a ventilator for the rest of her life. That was also discussed and it was really more than I and Cathy could take in. Recovery could take a very, very long time.

I'd like to ask for your prayers for Holly over the next several weeks. I would like for her to be on as many prayer lists as possible. Sorry for such a long message. Your prayers are so very much appreciated. Frederick Howell and family.

Please pray that I get a restful sleep tonight, it has been two nights and I am very tired. We are in the process of selling our house and it gets very stressful at times. Please pray that God's peaceful arms wrap around me and anyone else out there who is having a hard time getting a good nights rest. May God's peace be upon us all!

Please pray for my 31year old daughter, Kelsey. She had surgery a year and a half ago for endometriosis, but she is starting to have problems again. She is having cramps and bleeding. These are the same problems she was having before her surgery. I know that one touch from God is all she needs. Please pray that her cramps and bleeding will stop soon and that everything will be ok. Thank You for your prayers.
