update on Cousin A

Cousin A is currently in surgery to remove fluid from her spine. Bear with me and I will try best to give the most current information without getting to technical. It's kind of hard to write as that makes it real. She has a large tumor that starts at the base of her neck to her chest. They are unsure if it is cancer or not but as this time that is not what they are focusing on. It seems the mass is causing some blockage and fluid on her spine. They need to remove it ASAP as it could leave her paralyzed.
Another update as in the operating room the tumor is bigger then first thought they will have to remove some around the spinal cord along with the fluid. They fear that if they do not remove it. It could calasp onto the spinal cord causing permanent damage.
I will keep you all posted as we hear more updates. Thank you so much to all of you who are praying. We have seen so many blessings already from Gods people showing his love to A and her mom.
