My dad had to take my mom to the hospital the other day. Her memory was going to pieces. We were hoping it was encephalitis. The results came back today. She has several tumors on her brain. We won't know if they're malignant or not until a biopsy is done. The hospital is at right now is just a small community hospital with no regular resident neurosurgeons or pathologists on staff and the earliest either of their outside neurosurgeons could do it was next Wednesday, so tomorrow she is being transferred to one of the big downtown hospitals.

"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
On the recommendation of my brother-in-law's sister-in-law, who is a nurse, Mom has been transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. It's one of the biggest hospitals in the Chicago area and it has an entire building dedicated to brain-related issues. I was over at the other hospital today. Last night, they gave her a steroid IV to help relieve the cranial pressure. It really worked. Today she seemed more aware and not as fidgety as she was.
Last night, I emailed my church, my parents' church and our old church, asking them to put her on their sick lists.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and best wishes.
