Pray for our Angel

 

We’ve watched Angel grow up over the years. Angel Thompson has been with Grace Academy since she was 3 years old and she had her 10th birthday on August 11th. She has touch everyone’s heart her at Grace Academy and we want to share her journey with you. Below is the background story shared on her Caringbridge website.

Angel’s Story

"It is a big tumor...it will require surgery...it is likely cancer...it is not a good prognosis."  These are the things that strike fear in the heart of any parent.  This is what we heard about our wonderful five year old daughter Angel on Monday after a visit to the ER and ensuing transfer.  Last week she began having headaches and problems with her eyes going crossed.  We had a few MD visits and were leaning toward vision problems.  Thanks be to God for the wonderful staff at CMC-Northeast ER who caught the tumor and immediately arranged transfer to CMC-Main Levine Childrens Hospital.  We have met with pediatric neurosurgeons and pediatric oncologists.  The tumor is in the cerebellum exerting pressure on the brainstem with increased intracranial pressure.  It is a large tumor with anticipated difficulty removing it.  There is significant potential of complication associated with removal and most likely will result in cerebral shunt placement.  Surgery is scheduled for 3-10-10 at 6 am.  We know that miracles happen and that God still performs miracles.  We know this is possible through prayer and the mighty hand of God who already has his hands at work in Angel's healing.  Words cannot express our fear and anxiety.  Knowing tomorrow will be different in some way brings pain...we try to remain strong in our faith because we know that God is near.  Thanks go out to all who have prayed, sent gifts, visits, and supported. Jump forward to 2015. Angel is still under going test and scans and continues to be watched daily. Thank you for sharing with us your journey. We are excited "our Angel" will be a 5th grade graduate of Grace Academy! We love you Angel!
