Hi Everyone,

I haven't been posting much lately, but the good news is that for the last two weeks, I have felt much better.:) I had my second M.R.I. and found out I have a Glial Neoplasm in the right Geniculate body of my brain.

My Neuro explained on my last visit, that it is very deep and inoperable..but, I did, request to see and Neurosurgeon and have an appt. on May 2nd, with, him.

My Cell Cept is up to 1500 mgs a day..and oddly, and thankfully, enough it helps with my headaches from the tumor.

My neuro wants to watch and wait, and I suppose he knows best. He said, he referred me to this particular Neurosurgeon, because he is conservative in doing surgery.

My lupus and Fibro are giving me no problems at all, presently. I am so happy to report.

I am having tummy problems, so am going to have a colonoscopy soon..as I am very over do for one..(fun). :lol:

Otherwise, I am fit as a fiddle..:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

I hope you all have a beautiful day. It is a lovely morning here in Idaho.:)

Love,
Sandy

Hi Sandy,

You sound like you're handling all this remarkably well. Probably better than I would!

I'm glad to hear the other illnesses are not flaring up for you right now. Take care and keep us posted on what this neurosurgeon has to say.

I am so happy to hear you are getting some relief from the lupus and fibro:) I hope this neurosurgeon can help with the tumor. I have heard of a thing called a "gamma knife" that is used for some hard to reach tumors, maybe that is an option for you?
Good luck with the colonoscopy:calm:
