Sierra was moved to the oncology floor yesterday just before noon. She was so happy to be out of ICU and has been feeling great. She is ready to be home, which could happen as early as tomorrow. I am amazed at how quickly she has recovered from a brain surgery, she has surpassed all of my expectations. Hopefully this coming week we will have a lot of answers on what her treatment plans are going to be in the months to come.

I knew I would fail at keeping this blog upated. Facebook is just so much easier. Sierra has done amazing sinceh her surgery, she was kept under sedation and intubated for about 24hrs after surgery, but would wake up for small amounts of time and try to communicate with us. She couldn't talk because of the tube in her throat, but she would mouth things to me or use hand signals and I did a lot of yes and no question asking. She had an MRI of her head yesterday and the doctor says he got the whole tumor out and that there was minimal swelling, all great signs. We should move out of the ICU today, and have a few recovery days on the oncology floor before being released. Thank you so much to everyone that has been praying for our family, Sierra specifically. We know we have so much love and support around us

Though I hate to write it, Sierra has relapsed in her brain. She had a seizure on Monday night which alerted us to the tumor in her left occipital lobe, at the back of her head. Thankfully she has no other spots anywhere else. She will have surgery tomorrow at noon to remove the spot, which is about 2cm and right near the surface of her skull. Afterward she will remain sedated for 24 hrs so they fan do a folow up MRI, she wil be in ICU for a few days and then on the oncology floor for a few days after that. Right now she is feeling OK, she is anxious for the surgery to be over because she doesnt like being in the ICU and she is grouchy from being on steroids to keep the swelling down on her brain. Please send lots of prayers her way tomorow, and I will try my best to be a good blogger and update as I can.
