I have some new info.

The surgery will be about noon on Wednesday and they have it scheduled for three hours. I have to be there two hours ahead of time. I had another MRI this morning and apparently this connect to what the nurse called a brain machine that uses 3D images and guides the Dr. to the proper place on the brain. The preop at the hospital was mostly paper work, blood tests, an Ekg and watching the screen saver on the hospital's computer that reminds the operator to smile.

I am told I will go to neurological ICU after the surgery. The title of the surgery is called parietal crainiotomy with tumor removal. I have been told to expect to be in the hospital for about 4 - 5 days. In the mean time I am just going to take it easy.

Bob drove me all around today which finding the Drs office was the most difficult.


  1. I will be praying that the surgery goes well and your are able to get some good rest in the mean time. Thanks for sharing yourself with the blogosphere:)
