Hello Friends and Family- Some of you may or may not know that I have been experiencing headaches for the past month or longer.  I was being treated for a sinus infection and when that did not seem to help, I asked to have a CT scan done.  Which was done on March 21, 2019.  I then received a call to come back in the next day for a MRI scan, followed with a meeting with my doctor who confirmed the results.  In layman's terms I have what they believe to be a benign mass 26mm (about one inch) in size on the right side of my brain (paramedian right parietal) I think I have that correct.  What it comes down to, is that I will need to have brain surgery and have it removed sooner than later.  I currently have an appointment with a neurosurgeon on April 2 and then I will be going to the Mayo Clinic on April 11 for two appointments. The first appointment is with the oncology team and then the next appointment is with their neurological team, which will then schedule my surgery.  Never, ever did imagine that I would be creating my own Caring Bridge page.  But I feel this a great method of communicating new information, without having to contact everyone individually.  I will update this site whenever I learn more information and when I'm no longer able to, I will have someone else take it over.  So check back for updates and please keep your positive thoughts and prayers coming my way.  It's amazing how truly blessed I am to have such a great family and many dear friends.  I will get through this and remain positive through the process.  Thanks again it is appreciated!
