I think Lynn has too many doctors cause somehow his ENT doctors that told us he would be having surgery forgot to tell the surgeon!!!! For the last month we have been waiting on what we thought was a surgery date for Lynn’s tumor. Friday we had an appointment with the surgeon and he was, wait a minute, we need to look this over some more. I do want the surgeon to be comfortable with his decision, cause it is major surgery, I just wished we had not been told the surgery was happening now. We were all ready, had the plans that a person has to make for someone under going surgery, time off from work for me and our two sons, neighbors to watch after the house, neighbors to check on Lynn after he got home so I could work, the boarding kennel lined up, the whole drill. When we saw the surgeon it was like being hit in the stomach with a fist. It just knocks the breath out you. Well, what happens now is on our mind. The surgeon is putting him on medication to help control the spinning vertigo until a decision is made. He may not do surgery at all but do the Gamma Knife radiation. He is consulting with Lynn’s Neurosurgeon to make a decision. Lynn is of the mind set that he wants the tumor out of his head instead of radiation but that may not happen.
Please know that we do want what is best for Lynn and not rush the surgeons decision but we feel as if ENT was ahead of their selves when they told us he was fixing to have the surgery. Like I said too many doctors not on the same page.
So what are we too do? Well we are taking the camper and going to our favorite camping spot. We will just be gone from Tuesday morning to Thursday morning but we will enjoy it. Hope all of you do something you enjoy this week.
Thanks for letting me vent.
