Results of CT Scan

Call from Dr. Carson's office. Katya's CT scan showed lots of good healthy brain. (No surprise there, for those of us who are learning to know Katya close up!)

The bad news is that parts of her brain show signs that indicate PRESSURE. No one knows if it's "past" pressure, or "current" pressure. If it's current pressure, then we have a problem that needs attention soon.

So, off to Neuro-Opthalmology and have a dilated eye exam to rule out papilledema--which will help Dr. Carson chart the next step for Katya.

Also, Katya started music lessons yesterday and her music teacher is VERY excited about her. ;-) She was so excited, she has offered to teach Katya for a much reduced price as she wants to help her blossom and grow. THAT was just the icing on the cake . . .and a true blessing from God!

I have so much more good news to report, but that will have to wait for another post. My blogging time seems pretty limited these days . . .thank you to all of you who are reading and praying for Katya and our family! We really appreciate the prayer support and the comments!.
