Hello, everyone. It has been a long day having just got home from seeing new doctors and having more tests. I met with a radiation oncologist who ordered a more detailed MRI. It showed 4 tumors instead of 3, although it's not as bad as it sounds because the tail end of the large tumor is really a smaller tumor. We talked about getting a 2nd opinion which he supported. So the plan is that we will go to Mayo on Monday and be evaluated by a neurosurgeon, after that I see a radiation oncologist. If all goes well, I will be having surgery on Tuesday. So that is the plan. I want to thank you all for your care and support. The most amazing part of this journey is the grace and peace that we have been given by God. I am at peace, whatever the outcome.
Mary and Ravenlady, I am originally a Minnesota girl myself, having grown up in Northfield and living in Rochester for about 12 years. So I do look forward to getting back to God's country, even if it is for brain surgery!!
