Thank you for your kind words. I will pass them along to her.
She had her appointment yesterday and went through a battery of tests. She does have a tumor on her brain stem. The brain stem controls your breathing, and there's a 15% chance that surgery would have an adverse affect. The doctor doesn't know if it's malignant. She goes in for a CT Scan today. What they will probably do is monitor it over the next few months.
So, no solid answers yet. It's frustrating.
She is in very good spirits, though.
