We recently found out that my sister had a tumor on her heart. It's been growing for a few years now and just began to break apart and cause, what we now know to be, mini strokes. We were told by doctors for the past couple of years that these strokes were actually seisures and she had epilepsy. So now we know thats not true, and we would not have been alerted to this if my sister hadn't started coughing up blood on Thursday. We took her to a specialist and from there we found out she had a tumor on her heart and needed open heart surgery.

Saturday was her surgery and she seems to be recovering well but I would still ask that you keep Leah in your prayers. . she has been burdened with so much all her life. Cancer and a brain tumor when she was only 7 years old, causing brain damage and many problems from there on.. bad eyesight, hearing problems (fixed with a hearing aid), a very weak immune system, stunted growth, paralysis on the left side of her face, poor balance and so much more.

So please, keep my sister in your prayers.

I too have a sister that is burdened by health problems but, after many surgeries and countless Doctor visits is doing as well now as she's ever done since her diagnosis. You are in my prayers, don't lose sight that there will be better days ahead.

Thank you so much everyone for your kind words and thoughts. Leah seems to be doing well, they got her walking a little bit. One step at a time she's doing better. I think she's still a little confused to whats going on, she keeps asking why she's in the hospital but remembers it all once we tell her.

I'm sorry to hear about her problems, I hope she lives healthy from here on!
