Hello everyone, it's been quite some time since I've posted. This post is for the sole purpose of helping others who might be faced with an Acoustic Neuroma brain tumor. I want you to know that there is hope and guide you to where that is. If you ever hear of a forum member (perhaps on the "Angel Prayer List") or anyone else faced with this challenge, I hope you or an administrator can remember to access the archives for this post and don't hesitate to contact me by PM.
The extremely large size of this tumor and its location presented a life threatening situation for me. The tumor was 4.6cm and severely compressing my brainstem. Top neurosurgeons, Dr. Derald Brackmann and Dr. Schwartz, of the House Ear Institute in California, successfully and completely removed this tumor in a 12 hour surgery. It should be noted that they did what the famed Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona said they could not
. People come from all around the world to see Dr. Brackmann for his groundbreaking surgical techniques with this type of tumor removal.
It is my hope that right along side of Cajun's Lady's "Angel Prayer List" can be an equal sized "Answered Prayer List"... and put my name at the top.
With much gratitude I can say I'll see you down the road teardroppin again soon!
Oh, and what would a post be without pics right?
