Please remember in your prayers the 8-year-old son of dear friends. He is the second-eldest child of the five children in his family.
He was discovered to be very (completely?) deaf in one ear. They decided to get all of their kids' hearing checked and get this particular son a CAT scan. In the scan, they saw a mass of some kind behind his eyes. The doctors decided he should have an MRI. Yesterday he was sedated (thankfully he didn't have to go under general anaesthesia) and it was determined he has a mass that looks like a tumor. They don't know if it is benign or malignant, yet. They meet with the neurologist on Thursday to determine the next step in this process.
His mother is trying not to think the worst as she had a tough year with her mom dying last year from cancer. Please pray for this little boy's healing and that his parents and the doctors make all the right decisions.
I admit, I've copied and pasted the gist of this from the e-mail I received from our Homeschool group, but I don't think they'll mind.
Saint Raphael, the healer, pray for us. Saint Luke, the physician, pray for us.
