The Barrow Neurological Institute tumor board recommends another brain surgery followed by additional chemotherapy. Lynne is anxious but prepared to undergo her third brain surgery, the fourth when including the Gamma Knife treatment. She is scheduled for pre-operative work on 12 Jul 2010. The pre-operative work includes a functional MRI, blood work, and an appointment with the surgeon. The functional MRI maps brain function to provide a guide to the team during the surgery. On 14 Jul 2010, she starts admission and pre-operative procedures at 6:30 with the surgery scheduled for 8:30 in the morning.
As always, we appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
