Jerry had been experiencing dizziness that started mid December. He went into the doctor where he found fluid behind his left ear and was being treated for vertigo. He would have good days and bad days with the dizziness all while he was also dealing with a pinched sciatic nerve. Jerry and Lisa were suppose to be leaving for Florida on Wednesday when Tuesday morning the dizziness had been at its worst so they went to the ER hoping to get some Meds to get him thru the trip. After a month of dizziness and no improvements doctor decided to do a cat scan and found a golfball size cyst located on his brain stem. Right now he is scheduled for surgery on Friday where it will be a 6-10 hour procedure. The Nuerosurgeon will not know until he gets in there whether or not he will be able to remove it all or part of it depending on if it is attached to brain stem or just resting on it. Please keep the Newhouse Family in your Prayers and I will continue to keep updates.
