THANK YOU BLOGGERS AND AN UPDATE ON BALISHA'S SURGERY

Just a quick note to thank everyone that did such a great job of praying for Balisha and visiting her site. I am sure she is going to appreciate all the wonderful comments left by you for her.

Balisha's surgery went well and the neurosurgeon told them he was successful in removing all the tumor. Joe, her husband, says she is progressing nicely and had two tasks to complete today before she could be moved to a stepdown medical surgical unit from ICU. She was able to complete the tasks and has been moved. A CT scan was done early this morning and showed no bleeding or clot formation on the brain and the tumor was completely removed. Joe says she talked with family and went for a walk down the hall today. The surgeon says if she continues to recuperate at this pace, she may get to come home this weekend!

Please continue to pray for her total recovery. It is amazing to me to see bloggers from all parts of the world come to the aid of someone in need and send well wishes and prayers.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know Balisha and Joe thanks you, too. Love and Hugs, Judy

Judy, first I hope you don't mind I edited my post on 9/11 and added a line from your comments. I like to read about TW's visit with you, makes me miss my grand kids when I was raising them, now they are in their twenties, sigh, life moves too fast. He is getting bigger and I love the pictures of him, soo cute. I am glad you had a good time with your daughter, I like to drive around like you two did. Thank you for taking the time to come by. This week sure did go by fast, have a great weekend.
