Finally ! We have a date !
Finally ! We have a date ! Written Oct 3, 2012 4:09pm by Lisa Whitten My insurance came in this Monday and I made the call and had the first appointment today. Talk abut a slam bam thank you mame ! we took 3 hours to get to Boston and check in the hospital for meeting with the doctor. He said the tumor is making me go blind. I could leave it alone an go blind and then worry about the other troubles as well- crushed artery which can cause strokes, my face going numb, loss of taste, hearing and many other things or I can take door number two and have surgery. Its risky in that I could loose my vision that way, or it could just get worse from the surgery plus all the other things that can happen with surgery but more likely it will fix the eye sight or at least make it more stable. Surgery is set for Oct. 19th we have to be in Boston a couple more times before then to have more tests- a hearing test and then the stay Thursday for the cerebral angiogram the day before surgery. They will have us stay in hotels for a week or longer till they know I'm good to go home and then we can return. It will be very costly that's for sure ! but it's the best we have and great doctors as well. thanks everyone for all the support through this, I think it pushed us into the best doctor for the job !
