Radio-Surgery Update

Hello All,

We got back from Houston Saturday night about 6:30 completely wiped out from the trip. Sorry to everyone that tried to call and text but we got home and settled in then went to bed. Sunday was rough for me I slept all day but today seems to be starting good.

Back to the radio-surgery. We went to Houston Wednesday and just messed around the hotel for a while then went to bed. Thursday we went in and spent all day doing the MRI’s and the rest of the test. We got there about 7:30 and left about 4:00. The nurse told us to make sure we went to do whatever we wanted to do that night because i wouldn’t feel like doing anything Friday night. She was right. So we went out to the Galleria and walked around a little and ate dinner at the Fox Sports Grill then went back to the hotel and met my mother.

We got to MD Anderson Friday about 6:30 and checked in to put the “Halo” on.

Here’s a pic of the halo. They put it on and sat us in a holding area for almost 9 hours. I can tell you that when you have 4 screws and pins in your scull it starts to hurt and puts you in a sour mood. Finally about 4:30 they took us to the radiation area. They started with the Gamma Knife and did 4 tumors. It took about 2.5 hours to do the procedure so by the time we left the radiation area it was about 7 Friday night. We then waited in recovery for about 45 minutes then went back to the hotel. We were back at the hotel by about 8:30. 14 hours at that place is a nightmare but worth it.

Everything went as good or better than expected. The last couple of visits to Houston have been very productive and good. Thanks to everyone for their support during this fight.

Much Love and Merry Christmas,
