Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

Darby is recovering… November 23, 2008

Filed under: Friends,Prayer — Elizabeth @ 16:45


…and I thought my non-Master’s friends might like an update.  Here is the latest information on little Darby from the prayer letter:

“The bleeding in Darby’s brain is believed to have been stopped as of several days ago. His seizures (caused by the blood in his brain) are also subsiding gradually and doctors are weening him off the anti-seizure medication (which means he will be awake again soon). He is recovering well and everyone is optimistic. It will take a while, however, and we may be at the hospital for several months as he recovers.”

 · Doctors believe that he may have suffered a hemorrhage of an Arteriovenous malformation (AVMs): http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/avms/avms.htm
 · They have completed an MRI and believe that no further surgery is necessary.
 · Another MRI will be necessary to discern any further issues; this will also be a few months down the road.

  Many thanks to those who have prayed for them!

    I also had an AVM. I recommend http://www.avmsurvivors.org to get in touch with other AVM patients/survivors.
