      Did the brain mapping this morning. Pre admit, and then met with a trial nurse.  I've entered a brain met about a dura lining.  The best advantage was the meeting today with the research nurse who also had been Dr Asher's nurse for several years. She will be in the surgery tomorrow also.   She was so informative.  Went over the surgery step by step.  Answered every questions and relieved both of us.

      Everyone who examed me today agreed that the steroids have destroyed my body.  This is going to be an issue a long with just normal recovery.  Hopefully they can remove the entire tumor and the edema will start to leave.  I do realize that surgery itself inflames the brain.  

      I am soooo ready for this. I realize that this will take some time but I plan on getting my health back, therefore getting my life back. 

      I've asked Lynn to update this site once my son updates my caring bridge site.  Actually I'm sitting in a hotel right now with my husband and my son has flown in and we are waiting right now for the shuttle to bring him.

      I hope good news is posted that the entire tumor can be removed (location has been the problem).

                            Thanks so much for updating. I’ve been thinking about you. It sounds like you have a great nurse. I hope the craniotomy can start to solve it right away. I will be thinking about you tomorrow.
