Here's the deal: Ursula (1.5 years old) just underwent major brain surgery on October 26th to remove a large tumor. Michael John and Cerridwen (Ursula's parents) are living full time at the hospital taking care of Ursula while finding it difficult to care for their other young children aged 3 and 8.
Ursula had a 4.5 cm large tumor - which is large - on the right side of her brain, on the rear, pushing against the cerebellum - the small brain - and pressing against the brain stem. The cerebellum controls speech, motor function, swallowing, cheeks, eyes etc.
Ursula survived the surgery, but now the road to recovery is long and is requiring the full time care of Micheal John and Cerridwen in the BC Children's Hospital.

DIY HALIFAX SIDENOTE: although this event is clearly for an extremely worthwhile cause (one that I have nothing but sympathy for & do not wish to take attention away from) the burrow has been known to accept perpetrators of sexual abuse into their space much to the dismay of many in halifax. I feel it is important to acknowledge this.
