Well I don’t know now

Last week the neurosurgeon called and wanted to see Lynn again. We went to that appointment yesterday and the treatment plan we had went right out the window. Lynn’s doctors met with the gamma knife radiation team and Lynn is a candidate for the gamma knife EXCEPT it won’t stop his spinning vertigo. The Neurosurgeon told him he was between a rock and a hard place because Lynn has been having angina also. We have an appointment next Tuesday for a chemical stress test because he is having angina. The neurosurgeons suggestion is to see what the stress test shows and if he is having another blockage get that treated, then when the cardiologist can clear him for surgery have the surgery. They wouldn’t have to bother the brain, they would go in right behind the ear. They would cut the vestibular nerve and remove the tumor. They wouldn’t have to try to save his hearing cause he has no useable hearing left.

This has been one long road and I guess we are still traveling it. Maybe soon we will get this behind us. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for us. If you can add one more prayer to your list please pray for Mrs. Betty Krones. She is our neighbor and her husband Eugene died this morning of pancreatic cancer.

    So much to go through…but you know what, you ARE LIVING through it. The docs know so much now and I’m sure they have Lynn’s best interest at heart. You take great care of him. Make sure to take care of yourself too. I wish you a Merry Christmas. So sorry about your neighbor. How sad to lose her husband right before Christmas.

    Thanks everyone and Jan you are so right. Sometimes I just want to throw up my hands and run screaming down the street! That sure would be a sight but might make us feel better.

    Freda and Lynn, I do hope by cutting the v. nerve, it will help the vertigo. You two have been through the wringer, that is for sure.

    Hugs to you, Freda, I will pray for continuing strength, comfort, and a miracle!
