What great news! Kathy.

Kathy, that is much better news ! I had meant to send you a card, just have so much going on here that I cannot seem to get anything done... does this make any sense? yeah, I did not think so. Tomorrow I promised my mom that I would help her go though things to send to her grands or to send away to help others. 

I devoted so much time doing for others last year that this year I want to spend more time just with my mom and organizing the home. So, I have decided not to do the SS this year, however I have no issues in helping some if needed or wanted.  I made up at least 12 quilts, some harder than others.  I did enjoy it very much this year.

Great news Kathy!

Linda, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful Christmas Card you sent. The words were wonderful. I thought I had written a thank you before but haven't seen it anywhere, so must have forgotten to push the "add comment" button.

Kathy, I had Mastoid surgery after having had rubella, when I was about 3 years old. I still remember some things about being in the hospital. I am so happy to hear there is no tumor. PTL!! We will keep you in our prayers until you are out of the woods.

Kathy it's great to hear from you! You still have quite a challenge ahead of you, however we are all determined to make sure your spirits are kept up.Please follow all orders doc issues to the letter!

Oh what good news, Kathy.  Here is hoping all future reports are just as good.  Keeping good thoughts and prayers as you heal.

Comment by Linda Koller on January 2, 2020 at 4:06pm

Let's continue to keep Kathy in prayer for healing. She still has a long road ahead of her. Kathy sent me a long message and offered to do the impossible missions for our 2020 Secret Santa group! Yay!

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on January 2, 2020 at 2:04pm

Ladies, I am very pleased to be able to tell you that I am going to be OK.  Saw the doctor today, and I do not have a brain tumor.  Yeah.  You do not know how relieved that I am.  What I do have is severe mastoiditis, which is treatable, but they are sending me to a neurologist to make sure that I don't have any further complications.  The last couple of weeks have been very trying.  But the MRI and CT have cleared me on the tumor scare.  I am still totally deaf in my left ear even though my eardrum is 95% healed from the rupture.  The ENT dr said that there is a 50-50 chance that I may recover some hearing, but he feels that the damage from the ear infection may have permanently damaged my auditory nerve.  My face is still numb on the left side and my sense of taste and smell are still messed up, but he is hopeful on those as well.

Thank you for all of your cards and well wishes, you do not know how much they mean to me.

I would like to hear from Kathy Gurgone also. Hoping for some good reports.
