This Friday, I'm scheduled for my second check-up MRI since I had the brain tumor removed on June 15, 2005. I might not be going this Friday, though.....depends on how much snow we get tonight and tomorrow. If we get enough snow......the MRI will be postponed.

I will know for certain tomorrow (probably as soon as in the morning) if I'll be going Friday or not. In any case, I would appreciate any prayers for a good outcome from anyone who is religious here at TCC. If everything looks fine, I won't be scheduled for another MRI until this time next year.

Thank you. The tumor was discovered May 10, 2005 - it had been growing 7-10 years, and only discovered after having intense headaches. But, I knew it happened for a reason.......God has a plan for me, and the tumor was somehow related to it. Actually, that's one reason I joined TCC - I was homebound for over a year due to the tumor and surgery, and I had plenty of time to be online.

I hope there is nothing serious...

You've got my prayers..

Very true. At least it's not painful.

Well - the MRI has been postponed due to iffy weather. Now scheduled for March 26th - but will still appreciate any prayers. This MRI is just to make certain that the tumor has not grown back. The past tumor was benign, but the type of tumor can grow back. I just hope and pray that it doesn't.

Ok, good luck again. Sure we'll post when the date is closer
ffman
It's looking like we made the right decision postponing the MRI.....snowed quite a bit more last night than we expected. But, now.....I'm hoping I can get home safely today......I've never driven in snow before.

Well.....God just gave me the best 'mojo' - everything looked fine! My neurologist said the MRI looked beautiful - everything looked normal. I'm scheduled for another check-up MRI next year (March 24, 2008), as he still wants to continue to keep a check on it (he said it's rare for a person my age (19) to have a large brain tumor like the one I had. To everyone: thank you a million for your thoughts and prayers! I thank God once again for all being ok. God bless you all for your concern.

I am back.

The MRI showed a small, 8 millimeter tumor on the outside of the brain near my left temple. According to my neurosurgeon, I have nothing to worry about at the moment; however, my next check-up scan has been moved up to August 4 as he said this needs to be watched. It's possible that the tumor could continue growing, or it might stay the same size. If the first case is true, it will eventually need to be taken care of through surgery or radiation. He said surgery would be much less involved than the operation that removed the original tumor in 2005 (which was as large as a man's fist) due to the smaller size. I pray that it grows no more.

Everyone, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I would appreciate any more you could throw my way over the next half-a-year.

Best of luck Cody, I'll be thinking of you.
