About three weeks ago, Mary started to notice problems with remembering words. She was also not speaking as clearly as usual. With some prompting, she got an appointment with her doctor on July 6th. The doctor confirmed changes in her memory, balance and gaze tracking and directed us to the Lake Forest Hospital ER. An initial CT scan showed two tumors in her frontal lobe. She was admitted and further testing is being done. We are currently waiting for results from the MRI of her brain and the CT scan of the rest of her body to see if there are other tumors that spread to her brain or only the brain tumors. Anyone who knows Mary, knows she has faced head-on many challenges in her life. Mary is maintaining her sense of humor and her Independent spirit.
