Ben Riewerts has returned home from Mayo. His EEG is greatly improved from
December and his MRI looked great. His doctor is pleased with these results. The
spinal tap results were not back at the time of printing, but hopefully, they will also be
good and no treatment will be needed at this time. Ben will go back to Mayo in three to
four months for an office visit. THANK YOU for your continued prayers!
