Friday Update

I wanted to give a update on Amy and Philip.

Philip is back home for now. He does have a syrnix that has grown and is on his Tspine 3 to 7. This is something that will need to be watched and dealt with in the coming weeks. This is in a dangerous place for respiration issues. It will be watched careful for a few weeks. The neurosurgeon will re scan Philip in 4 weeks.

The Dr has also said that they feel that he has the degenerative nerve disorder which is causing the weakness in his left side. He will be treated for the pain. The disorder can not be treated. Which is very hard for us to accept.

Amy is having a really bad afternoon. Her neck is having some swelling and draining issues that the Dr is watching. She is on pain meds and anti nausea medication to try to help. The Dr reminded Amy today that this operation was very involved and this will not be a quick or easy recovery.

Thank You all for the support.

Jim

Our prayers cover all of you! When you can, tell Amy that Jane got the shirt and ornaments today. I wore the shirt so she was thought of the whole day!! And my daughter immediately snatched the ornaments right up and declared them to be her's. Thanks so much for keeping us up to date with both of them!

TY Jim for the update. Glad you were able to tell us about Philip too. Hurts my heart to see the answer about the left side.

It was good seeing you both today. Love you!

Amy,

Santa came to Tennessee early this year. He left a package in my back door. As always, you remember everyone else with all you are going through.

You know that I adore you, too,
Marcia
