Sophiana Update

As of today, $650 has been raised for Sophiana's surgery. THANK YOU readers for caring about this young girl and for reading my blog where you met her (click Sophiana's story to know more about this young girl).  However, we are only 1/3 of the way until all the money has been raised for the mastoidectomy. We need a total of $1,877 by next Friday, January 14th,  when the doctor hopes to perform the surgery. Last Monday we had a doctors appointment where he looked at her CT scan (thanks to YOU she was able to have it), which showed a collection of fluid in the mastoid. She is continuing to take her antibiotics and ear drops while waiting for next Friday's surgery. She will recover in the hospital for one night and then go home. Thankfully, the recovery is quick and she will be able to return to school on the following Monday.

If you are interested in donating to the cost of the mastoidectomy, please donate here. Please also pray for Sophiana's quick recovery and healing. THANK YOU!
