April 4, 2008, Danni is...

...doing so well! She was commended by her doctor yesterday for her great attitude! I am so grateful for the grace that God is giving her to handle all she's going through. Her incision is healing nicely and we are just waiting for the draining to slow to an acceptable amount so that the doctor can remove it.

It seems as though her infection is clearing too, THANK GOD!

Monday she goes to see two of her doctors and we'll have more answers then as to when she can get back to radiation. As it is now, she has to begin all over, a new mask will have to be made and everything reset in the machine. But before she can start radiation again the drain will have to be removed.

We have been watching her blood sugar closely, attempting to keep it on the low side as the antibiotic and the steroid she is taking cause it to soar, slowing the healing process. Danni is so brave, she tests her sugar by herself and gives herself the insulin shots twice a day.

Thanks to you all for the prayers, cards, money, and food. Every day I have with her makes me extremely grateful. I know God heals her every day, in every way, and this also makes me thankful.

May God heal every one of you in every way, may he pour out on you his richest blessings, may he cause his face to shine upon you all and give you peace. May you shine brightly for him in what ever circumstances you are in because you know he is making you more like him. Amen.

What sweet people you are body of Christ! Jesus pours from you! You may think you don't make a difference in this cold world but I'm here to tell you that you do! Thanks again for everything.

Christi, I know you probably don't have much free time on your hands right now, but if your husband or a sibling of Danni's can take the time to research this website it is very helpful. My daughter spent hours researching my father in law's brain cancer. nbtf@braintumor.org. It is the national brain tumor's website.
God Bless, Lori Bieber
