Francis Update

It just dawned on me (Lois) today that there might be people who aren't on Facebook that would like an update. Sorry about that.

Monday's surgery went very very well. She was able to be asleep during it! The doctor's told my parents that it could not have gone better. They removed all of Egore!!!! With most brain tumors, they are unable to get the entire tumor. We are so so happy about this. After she woke up from surgery she was in ALOT of pain, which I am sure is pretty normal. I cannot imagine my head hurting that badly. It took a little while to figure out what medicines work best with her also. Tuesday morning she was able to eat a little bit of grits and keep them down which was great. The rest of the day was filled with pain, pain and more pain. She had a good night Tuesday and today was able to sleep for 1 1/2 hrs straight Farris said. Which unfortunately is the longest she has slept in one sitting since surgery. Poor Frannie. She also ate a little more grits today. I forgot to mention that Tues and today she was able to walk down the hall a little bit with the Nurse and sit up in a chair for a few minutes. The last I heard this afternoon, she was supposed to be moved to a normal room as well, out of the ICU. We are really excited so far with her progress.

Again, I can't say thank you enough for the prayers that have been offered in my families behalf. I know that this is why she is doing so well. Thank you thank you thank you!!


My sister Farris and I are going to have an online craft auction soon to help with hospital expenses. If you would like to donate something, big or small, please let me ( or Farris ( know so that we can add it to the list and come up with a date to have the auction. If you don't craft but have something else to donate, we will take it too!! Also, you can be in ANY state and still donate something!! Thank you!!
