Maggie is 14 years old in the 9th grade. Summer 2008 she was showing signs of early puberty. Sept 2008 she passed out twice. Oct 2008 a MRI showed a pineal tumor/cyst/mass/lesion...depend on which Dr you ask. She has daily dizziness. Frequent headaches, stomach pain, flushed feeling and vision issues. Repeat MRI show the mass is stable with the latest (Oct 2010) showing 1mm growth). She has elevated insulin levels, and high calcium/creatinine levels. Some days are easier that others.....just taking things one day at a time.
Thank you for you continued prayers.
