A Manitoba family is asking for continued prayers as their daughter recovers from brain surgery, and as they await the results of a biopsy of the tumour that was removed.

Doctors discovered the tumour, which was the size of a lemon, on February 1 after Elizabeth Wilson had been struggling with bouts of nausea and dizzy spells. She was immediately admitted into hospital, and underwent surgery on Tuesday, February 9.

"Elizabeth’s surgery went very well," her mom, Katharina, says. "She is in PICU. They will monitor her to make sure everything is fine."

Elizabeth is also scheduled for another MRI so doctors can check "on how everything looks on the inside."

In an email to CHVN, Katharina says, "We’d like to say a BIG thank you for all the prayers for her yesterday."

The family has also been overwhelmed by financial support through a GoFundMe campaign.

Katharina asks for continued support through prayer. "Just keep praying because she still has a ways to recovery and it’ll be about two weeks for the biopsy results."
