Stephie Update

Right before we started Trick or Treating, Stephie shared the good news with me that her CAT scan came back positive. While that may sound like a bad thing, they were actually hoping for the CAT scan to detect something, which would mean calcification is evident, vs. the more worrisome "bleed scenario".

While there isn't a whole lot more information now on what all of that calcification means, or what its effects have already been regarding her sleep cycle, the doctor is not overly concerned. He would like Stephie to continue to monitor her headaches for the next month, and if they continue (or get worse), to then see a neurologist for his recommendations on scenarios for relief.

Thank you for all of prayers and support!
