My Story

Trevor found out he has a brain tumor on  Tues. July 28, 2009.  So here is a scenario of what lead up to the discovery and what he has encountered so far.

THE SIGNS:  Trevor felt numbness and a tingling sensation in his left leg for about a month or maybe longer.  He didn't think it felt right, but thought it was related to a past knee surgery which had minor complications afterward.

THE LAST STRAW: While on a fishing trip in SD, Trevor went swimming.  His leg once again went numb, he had a harder time swimming and couldn't get into the boat or on the jetski.  His friends assisted.

THE APPOINTMENT:  He immediately made a an appointment with a random family doctor in the cities that Mon, July 27.  The doctor set him up for and MRI later that night 9:00PM. 

THE PHONE CALL:  Trevor was called the following day, Tues, at work.  He was told he a brain tumor and was being admitted into United Hospital in St Paul that afternoon.  He decides to let his parents know.  "I thought I'd let you know I'm being admitted into the hospital because I have a brain tumor."  WHAT?

HERE WE GO:  His sister, her boyfriend and a couple of other friends who live in the cities go over right away to be with him.  Clayton and I meet and head up, Blake also drives to the cities.  We are all bedside when the doctor finally arrives.
