From No Cure To No Trace

HAYS COUNTY, Texas — By Kalynn Norwood A girl’s inoperable brain tumor is gone and doctors have no explanation. Today, Roxli Doss is doing what she loves, and that’s horseback riding. Girl’s inoperable brain tumor disappears, doctors can’t explain it.

“She is just as active as she ever was,” said Scott Doss, Roxli’s father. It’s hard to imagine that in June doctors diagnosed Roxli with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, or DIPG.

“It is very rare, but when we see it, it is a devastating disease,” said Dr. Virginia Harrod with Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas. “You have decreased ability to swallow, sometimes vision loss, decreased ability to talk, eventually difficulty with breathing.”

Harrod said the now 11-year-old went through weeks of radiation, even though there is no cure. The family held a benefit for her in August, and the community responded in a big way. At that point, all Gena and Scott Doss could do was pray for a miracle.

And we got it! Praise God!

Sleep with Socks On, Start Tonight, Why?

When your feet get cold, one of the best solutions, according to experts, wear a pair of socks to bed. However, the “small” debate renders a simple statement, it’s a good idea. People have debated this subject for years. Reader’s Digest has decided to weigh in and see if they could find the answer.

If you like sleeping with your feet warm at night has been proven to actually makes a difference in your sleeping patterns. According to sleep.org, “Heating cold feet causes a dilation of the blood vessels, which may tell the brain that it is bedtime.  Wearing socks to bed isn’t the only secret to a sweet slumber.

The other side of this issue doesn’t exist, as least this reporter couldn’t find any. I then thought, hmmm, maybe it’s because most people don’t wear socks to bed. Or if the picture above is the only choice, I’ll pass. So they figure, why argue, besides I’m tired. Good Night!
