I found out this AM that a friend's granddaughter, they're not Orthodox but have visited or Church several times with us, has a brain tumor.  Her name is Quill.She's under a year old but I'm not sure exactly how old.  She has been throwing up for two weeks they just discovered sometime in the last 24 hours that it was a tumor. They are operating today but  either the tumor or the surgery could effect her ability to speak in the future.  Please pray for her and the family.

Lord, have mercy.  Most Holy Theotokos pray for them.

Quill is out of surgery,  so far so good, but still early.

Thanks everyone for your prayers.

Just, heard the surgery went well. They git the whole tumor.  Glory to God.  Now I'm praying it doesn't come back and that her ability to speak isn't effected.  I suppose they won't know that until she gets old enough to speak. 

Lord, have mercy.

Just got this from baby Quill's parents.  "The prognosis is bad. We are devastated.  Will need strength and courage to get through the coming months. " Also, "There is a possible cure but, the process will be a struggle with no guarantee. "

Despite the early good reports of how the surgery went baby Quill has not been out of the hospital yet and it appears won't be for a while based on the above.  

Lord, have mercy. Most Holy Theotokos pray for them.

Here is the latest on 10 month old Quill. She has been able to enjoy being home a few days and is happy now that the pressure from the tumor is gone.  They did a confirmation test, a spinal tap, to see what subtype of cancer she had. Her spinal fluid was cancer free, Glory to God.That makes her odds of survival, go from the 50 percents to 90 percent. They also had feeding tube and port inserted for future just in case. Her parents have decided to pursue chemo and eventual bone marrow transplant along with other wholistic therapies. Also, this is putting a strain on her parents ability to care for her older sister Zaina. Her parent are considering sending Zaina to stay with her birth father a Muslim man currently studying in Sweden.

So sad. Just so sad. But may God be merciful and the angels and Theotokos be with the child.

Yes sister is still with them there hasn't been any recent talk of having her leave but most of my information comes through her grandparents who are good friends of ours.  Baby Quill is home after another brief stay in the hospital and should be starting chemo soon.

Lord, have mercy.

Thanks for asking.
