Welcome to Jessica's Site. It’s for all of us, but most of all for Jessica.
From Jessica on Thursday, March 5th, 2020:
"Just a quick note to you all that I have scheduled my brain surgery for April 1 at Regions Hospital with Dr Mendez. They’ve suggested I’ll be in the hospital 3-4 days and then home for another3-6 week recovery. If any of you want to look up more info on this type of tumor it’s called a meninglioma. It’s slow growing, most often not malignant, but it is in a tough place to extract from my brain so they’ll also use radiation after the surgery to kill the parts of the tumor they leave because it is in a sensitive area.
As you might guess , a diagnosis like this totally dumps my basket of “things to do” upside down and I am not sure what I’ve told to whom or when,let alone the day. I have to laugh!
Lou’s been great in the face of so much uncertainty. Don’t think we’ve ever hugged so much.
I’ll need your positive energy so send it this way. Thanks!
