    Ron's tumor

    First, thanks to Jim Burr for relaying a message for me last night. I now have a wi-fi account here at the hospital.

    The MRI found a golf ball sized tumor in the lower back of his head. It appears to be slow growing but his headaches have gotten much worse, so it has to come to come out. Hopefully it will be benign but at this point all other information is speculation, and so we won't go there to raise more anxiety.

    I appreciate your support. This is a tough time. The words, "My brother has a brain tumor" are indeed frightening. I will keep you posted as things develop. Everything else in my life is on hold, for those who wondered how I handle everything. I do have a watcher over me, as some of you know.

    Re: Ron's tumor

    What i would like to understand with these things is how does one detect them before they golfball size.

    All the best Carol for a positive outcome.
