We wanted to share a few current updates with everyone as your support has meant so much to us over the last year of our lives. We have recently been back to MSK for a CT scan, and we feel very lucky to say that thank God, the doctors do not believe there is any recurrence of Sophie’s tumor. However, a couple of months ago, we were slightly concerned that Sophie had been getting fevers, colds and coughs on a continuous basis, which were not being alleviated when provided with antibiotics. After investigating a bit further, our doctors found that these issues were resulting from a complication created by her previous lung surgery last February.
Therefore Sophie will unfortunately need to undergo another significant lung surgery this coming Thursday, December 12th. The surgery and recovery will be almost identical to her previous operation, given that they will be doing another open-lung procedure to hopefully correct the issue she has been having. We would again like to ask that you keep Shalva Gavriella Bat Shani Aliza in your thoughts and prayers this coming Thursday and over the next few weeks so that her surgery and recovery can be quick, successful and easy.
Thank you all again for your unwavering support for our family over the last year and more. It really has meant so much to us, and we hope to be in touch with good news over the next few weeks.
