On October 8, 2016, Angie started having episodes that have been diagnosed as seizures.  She had an MRI on October 13 and found out she had a large tumor in her left temporal lobe.  She will be having the tumor removed on Wednesday, December 7 at MD Anderson in Houston, TX.  The type of tumor depends on how much they will be able to remove.  If it's the soft type, they can possibly get all of it, if it's the harder type, they will get what they can, but it's against vessels and nerves.  Also, there's a 50/50 chance it's cancer.  They will put her to sleep to cut her head and scull and get prepared, then they will wake her up during the procedure.  They will ask her questions, show her pics, make her move certain parts of her body to be sure everything is going good.  There's a high risk of stroke, speech issues, loss of movement on her right side.  This will be an all day surgery and a lot of it depends on if she continues to participate thru the whole surgery.  If she shuts down and quits answering, they are done, and there's no going back in later.
