Thanks for the prayers extended for my sister. I just talked to her and she has a very positive attitude and wants to get this over with.  She was set to retire this Friday but will now have to take disability for 6 months in order to maintain her health insurance.  She had a seizure is the only reason the tumor was found.  The surgeon says it is not malignant so that is very encouraging.  She has a tear in her knee/ligament due to her fall down the stairs but says she WILL not get this taken care of until after the brain surgery.  So her attitude is extremely good, is looking forward to her retirement party with her family this Friday and then her surgery the next Friday.

I will keep you updated after the surgery.  Thanks again for the prayers.  I feel good for her right now because she feels good.

Thank God the tumor is not malignant.   I'll keep you, your sister, and family in prayer.   an angelic monkey

I will be out off and on for the couple of weeks but do not forget that I am with this for the long haul.  My sister just found out she has a mass the size of my fist pushing against her brain and surgery is the only option.  So in less than 2 weeks brain surgery is where it is at for her and I will be standing beside her during this time.  So prayers are needed as the recuperation time is much longer than the surgery itself.

Take care Monkeys.

Thanks Janet.  Your the best.  I thought of you when she found out and wondered if this is similar.  Sounds like it to me.  What kind of recuperation time did you require with your surgery?  She knows she will have rehab but doesn't know how much.  Thanks.

Blue Moon ... every condition is different.

In February 1990 ... while getting ready for work ... I looked into the mirror and ... the right side of my face appeared as thought it was "droopy" ... mouth was crooked.  Within a minute everything was back to normal.  I quickly put the concerning incident behind me.  The following week I received an annual hearing test provided by the company I had been with with 17 years of age.  As she had done for a number of years ... the nurse reminded me again that my hearing was going down in the right ear.  As I had done for a number of year ... I did not put any significance into this diagnosis.  After all ... I could hear and ... the insignificant loss of hearing was not inconveniencing my life in any way.

In May, 1990 ... following my yearly checkup ... my longtime physician queried whether I had any medical symptons that were bothering me.  I was about to replay in the negative when the two incidences in February crossed my mind.  Rather than assuring me I had nothing to be concerned abot ... the next morning I found myself sitting across the desk from a neurologist.  I was sent for various outpatient tests at Vancouver General Hospital over the following week.  As I had no symptoms ... no headaches ... I considered this all a waste of time.  However ... the final test was a CAT scan.  It was this procedure where a benign tumor was discovered ...  a benign  tumor the size of an egg was located on my right hearing nerve ... a benign tumor that had been growing for an estimated ten years.  This condition is called Acoustic neuroma.  As the tumor was resting against my brain stem ... I was in immediate danger of a massive stroke so ... three days later I underwent a thirteen hour surgery.  Two very skilled neurosurgeons took turns attempting to make sure the entire was was removed to avoid any regrowth.

Blue Moon ... long story short ... I was out of the hospital in ten days and ... four months later ... I had gained most of my strength back and ... I was back at work for three days a week for a month and ... then it was full time again.

It was a given prior to surgery that I would loose my hearing in my right ear but ... considering there were also other neurologic risks ... I feel very fortunate.  Yearly CAT/MRI scan checkups turned into checkups every two years and ... now checkups are scheduled every five years.  Apparently any regrowth of the tumor if caught early can be removed with a lazer procedure.

Blue Moon ... the worst part of the entire experience was learning how to let go ... trust the surgeons ... trust God ... acknowledging I had no control.  I came to that place throughout the long night prior to my early morning surgery.  I gave it all to God and experienced for the first time in my life the "peace that passes all understanding".

The recouperation period involved for the most part just gaining strength.  In the beginning daily progress was so insignificant ... a week would have to pass so I could compare how far I had come.  As time went on ... everyday progress was evident.

I learned through this experience what my priorities in life were.  It was not the home I loved.  It was not the job I loved.  It was not the friends who I loved.  It was not my extended family who I loved.   It was my relationship with God ... it was was husband ... it was my children and ... it was my father.

Love, Janet

Janet, very powerful.  It kinda sounds like the same thing.  Her symptoms started off with numbness in the right leg and foot.  Had test run on everything except her head.  Said it was just a pinched nerve in her back.  She told them her back doesn't bother her.  This doctor said it had probably been present since birth slowly growing.  He told her will probably have some motor skill loss which will have to be relearned. Said speech could be affected because of that.  She said she thanks God above for letting this happen now so she can enjoy her retirement later on and her family.  He has her on seizure medication, said seizures with come alot now since they just started.

Dear Deenie, I have been praying for you since you posted your pray request on the 16th of May. I just didn't write any thing as I am not good with words like some of the other Monkeys. I have prayed for you and will continue to pray for you. You have a loving heart and soul. May God bring you peace and comfort. God Bless

Thanks for prayers.  Just got home from my sisters retirement party.  She was having a grand ole time.  7 out of 11 of her brothers and sisters made it.  I put together a "memories" photo album for her and she cried when she looked through it.  I started off with pictures of her and her family, then on to her school day pictures, then pictures of all of us kids growing up, then pictures of our mother and father, and lastly pictures of our ancestors (what little I could locate of them).  The surgeon told her to go on and shave her head next week, we siblings offered to do it for her tonight but she said she would have to have several margaritas before she would ever allow us to do it.  Still has a positive attitude and says she fully trusts this surgeon.  So one more week before her surgery and she is at peace with it and doesn't appear to be overly concerned.  Update next Friday after surgery.  Thanks again.

Blue Moon

I took the liberty of adding "Blue Moon's sister" and family to our ladies prayer circle chain.  Prayers will extend to other churches in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia ... north to Vancouver ... South to Portland, Oregon ... East to Calgary Alberta.  All total there are 21 ladies prayer groups involved .  The way it words ... the prayer leader in each church has the responsibility of contacting each of ladies her respective group as well as ccontacting the next church on the chain.  Within the week the chain should come full circle back to our church.

Take care hon.
