A couple of days ago my sister went to the emergency room. She was twitching and had pains in the chest and neck. They tested her heart and all that and couldn't find out what was causing it. They scheduled a MRI test for this afternoon (2 days later). She seemed to be doing better but this morning her daughter called my parents at 6am then called 911 because my sister had collapsed on the bathroom floor.

She seems stable right now and they are giving her the MRI test as right now. They are thinking either some kind of seizure or even possibly a mild stroke. She's only 7 years older then me so she's 42. I'm home now just to get a bite to eat then I'm heading back to the hospital.

I'm sure many of you have read about the kind of year I've had this year. Makes things like this even more scary after so many losses this year. I'm trying not to think like that but it's not an easy thing to do though.

Ron, we don't know each other, but I have read your other postings.
I do hope they find out, and sort out, what is wrong.
You are both in my prayers.

She came home for a few hours yesturday but she had a couple of seizures. The third seizure was pretty strong so we took her back to the hospital whre she is right now. They still aren't exactly sure what's causing them yet. Still running tests to find out. She's never had a seizure before and she's had 12 of them since all this started (in one week). Had 5 of them yesturday.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks everyone.

BAD NEWS!

They found out it's a brain tumor called Oligodendraglioma in her Left Medial Posterior Temporal lobe.

She's going to be taken to another hospital but we're wating to find out where and when. It's not looking good. We don't have much information yet but some things where discussed. They made mention of a brain operation but if they happenes it won't be for a couple of months or so. They said that because of the location of teh tumor that if they do go that route and it is successful then she'll probably lose some of her eye site. That's really got her down on top of everything because she's already hearing impaired (not quite deaf like me but she's profoundly hard of hearing).

Thanks again for your support and prayers.

Ron, really sorry to hear that news.
Do keep us up to date and look on the positive side - although I'm sure you will.

Ron,

Sorry to hear that the problems aren't over. We will be thinking about you. Mom went the operation route and the falling stopped. TV and driving gave her some problems that with her new vision made them unworkable, but she could still read, play board games, enjoy walking and talking and could carry on well enough that for her age that most saw no major problem. At age seventy-eight (in 2000), she was in our wedding pictures and still enjoying herself. It's a change, but many things do.

Keep us posted.

Bob and Lucy

Your sister, family, and, of course, yourself are in my prayers... Would cards, etc. help to lift your sisters spirits?
I have found that I do not suffer from insanity... instead I rather enjoy it! : )

Thanks everyone.

Right now not much of anything will lift her spirits right now. She's under a lot of medication right now and when she is in a state that she can talk and think strait she's very depressed and scared. Of course this will be scary for anyone but like I said before. She's already profoundly hearing impaired. Chances are she'll loose some of her site from this. No one knows how much but I think the though of being blind and deaf (or hard of hearing) is something that really scares her right now. At least on a conscious level. Maybe somewhere down the road cards and things like that might be nice though. Thanks for the thought.

My family is a very close family so we are all her for her every minute we can be. Her daughter is of course very scared but she's right there by her side every minute she can be. We're doing our best to keep her calm and as happy as we can. She's a very strong and brave girl.

Anyway. Thanks again everyone. I'll keep you posted.

Jaxon,

I have an aunt who had a tumour with symptoms like you describe. She had an op and made a good recovery - she had some slight side effects I think but she was able to go back to living a normal life. Don't give up hope.

You and your family are in my thoughts.

Thanks again everyone.

Well, she's home now and the seizure seem to be under control. She'll be going to a different hospital (In Ann Arbor, MI) on Oct. 4th.

The best news we've heard is that the doctor is pretty sure it isn't a cancer tumor. We'll find out for sure when she goes to the specialist in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again everyone.

Thanks again everyone.

I figured I'd just stop in here and give an update on my sisters condition. It turns out that because of where the tumor is in her brain they aren't going to remove it. From what I understand the risk of doing that is greater then the risk of not removing it. In other words there's a good chance she would not survive the surgery. Even if she did survive it there may be some very serious complications.

So they are going to monitor it for now to see if it grows or just stays the way it is. If it does not grow then there may be other options such as radiation and chemo to possibly shrink it. They also mentioned that they might use drain fluids from her brain around the tumor with a needle type thing.

So right now it's all about controlling her seizures while waiting to see what happens. Right now she seems pretty much like her "normal" self. Tired, frustrated and scared of course but she's walking around and doing her best to take care of her daughter. Every once in a while the tumor would effect her memory. She laughed earlier today because she was talking and said the wrong word. Her tumor is causing her to do things like that. Kind of making her mind play small tricks on her. It's not a funny thing but I suppose it's god she's able to have a sense of humor about it a little.

Thanks again everyone.
