      I am so sorry this has happened to your dad, it is very scray.  I think Carmon has offered outstanding suggestions and I need to go get that book. I had a crannie on 07/01/10 with 3 saps of Cyberknife/SRS in the middle of July. My 3cm tumor was at the end of a blood vessel in the left side of my Cerebleum thats effects balance & walking, I did stumble when walking once or twice but blew it off. There was bleeding which was seperating my skull from my head (immediate steroid use stopped that) I did hear a wooshing sound in my ear once or twice One of my biggest challenges is recovery (hell I still have issues from Jan's lung surgery) . My routine by doctors orders is…walking up and down the hallway till tired. Last wk was one of the worst in my life (and thats saying alot) due to withdrawals from the steroids so I just stay on pain meds and 'em rding it out.

       I've got your dad on my daily prayers list, please let him know he is not alone and prayers & love are with him now. Please let us know how his Ipi is going. Good Luck & God Bless. Love Sharon in Reno Stage IV
