A year ago, my great-grandson was discovered to have three masses on his brain. After being airlifted to Lubbock, Texas, under the care of a neurosurgeon and further testing, it was determined that the three masses were Arachnoid cysts.

Surgery would be very dangerous and since he was not having any problems or difficulties, the doctors decided to watch him carefully, make more tests every few month and delay surgery until absolutely necessary.

He made several trips and testing during that year. On his last visit this week we were told to continue to watch for any signs of trouble and if there was none, to bring him back in a year. He seems to be a healthy, happy toddler and we praise God for answered prayer.

Thanks to all who contributed to the medical fund that was set up for him. We appreciate it more than words can say. Thanks to all who have shown an interest and have walked this road with us for the last year. God bless you all.
