Need a little help here God ...

My Partner (and brains) in Blogging

Linda Sog

Well, the news is not good.  I don't want to say bad, but, yeah, not good.

I saw the doctor and we went over the radiology report.  He kindly pointed out that it says that the cysts are on the right side, and both of my tumors were on the left side.  So, I got a referral to a neurosurgeon and had to wait a few days to hear from him about an appointment. 

When I did hear from his office (Tuesday of this week) it was only to request that I send copies of the operative report from the brain surgery they did on me back in 1998 for his review before I came in for an appointment.  This is bad, I think, because in the 20 years since that happened, no one has ever asked me for that.  I think it means he wants to map out a second surgery. 

Getting it was not as bad as I thought it would be.  At first, it looked like it would take over a month to request by mail, but, we arranged for his office to request and they should have it by early next week, and I should get an appointment soon after.

I've had to put the New York thing on hold while I figure this out, but they assure me that as long as Aunt Eleanora is alive, the offer is still there for me.  So, I wait here, trying not to panic, and just try to keep busy while the paper flows from Miami to [Here]. 

Pray for me Rodger.  Please.

I am, and I hope y'all will too.

Linda there are no words. Only prayers.

Investigate the cannabis derived RSO (Rick Simpson Oil). Accept no alternatives. My very best friend credits it to saving his life after cancer took over his face. He lost a good portion of his face when the surgeons attempted to remove the cancer, which cosmetic surgeries have somewhat restored, but they could not get all the cancer. He credits the RSO to saving his life. I do also, but know that prayers also played a most important role.

Here's a link if you are interested in researching:

Maybe we can spool up a new Proteus for a trip. Raquel Welch is still around and might crew or advise. . .

Thank you Rodg, and everyone else for your thoughts and prayers through this, and B"H, Thank God, it is not cancer and not another tumor. They are arachnoid cysts, common after traumatic brain injury like the brain surgery I went through in 1998 for the first tumor.

I am still waiting for the medical records to come from Miami, so I don't have a treatment plan yet and no idea what my options are. I am dealing with the stress of uncertainty as best as I can and fighting off the panic attacks as best as I can.

It is a great comfort knowing that there are people out there praying for me, thank you so much.

Any kind of cancer mention is scary. Old enough to have had a few of my own. Knowing the enemy is half the battle. Prayers are on the way.

Prayers for you Linda.

The hardest part is the waiting, so hang in there kid.

Deep breathing always helps me deal with stress, for what that's worth.

Well, the good news is, after two weeks of telephone conversations, faxed requests, begging, broken promises and yes, even a statement claiming they had no records whatsoever, the hospital finally provided the operative report from my 1998 brain surgery. It was over 50 pages.

The also good news is, this is not considered life threatening or an emergency.

The bad news is, because of the also good news stated above, I won't get to see the neuro and get any more info or a treatment plan until June 6. So, I try to control the stress of not knowing what's coming next, and just wait.
