Fifteen years ago I was diagnosed with an Oligodendroglioma cancerous brain tumor the size of an orange in my right frontal lobe. I had surgery to have it removed, successfully. I always knew there was a chance of it returning in the brain as it was a primary tumor (which means it will not spread to other parts of my body.) Well it was March of last year when they told me it had returned in the same spot. Basically it has started to fill up the hole that the first one left after surgery. The one good thing is that it is a slow growing tumor that's why they were in no hurry to take it out, but the headaches are just getting more frequent & more intense so they decided August 29th is the day. I have refused chemotherapy & radiation. I do ask that if you see me out & about after surgery, please be aware that I might not remember who you are as it will affect my short term memory....again. It sounds like I will be in the hospital 3 to 5 days if all goes well. I ask that you come to this site for updates & not to text/call or message me or Tyler's phone. Oh & one more thing, I'm not very religious, but please pray me & for a speedy recovery. Thank you! Jody
