Dear Saddleback Family,
Last Sunday we announced that Jaime, my daughter-in-law, (Josh's wife) was hospitalized Saturday night with blurred vision and headaches. Tests immediately revealed a massive tumor at the base of Jaime's brain. This is the second life-or-death health crisis that Jaime, age 25, has faced in the past two months. Seven weeks ago, Jaime had a high-risk and premature delivery of her first child, a son named Cole. Both mom and baby came through that, but now we face another.
I am writing from one of the best neurosurgery hospitals in the nation, where the chief of surgery has taken Jaime's case because of its difficulty. If you are reading this Wednesday morning, Jaime is, at this moment, undergoing a long, complex, and dangerous surgery on her brain. The team of doctors has said the surgery may last up to 16 hours.
Please stop and pray for a successful surgery. Thank you for sharing this burden with us.
