Just wanted to let you all know I heard from Tina today. She sounds wonderful! They saved the facial nerve and her hearing. She said today she was able to go out for some dinner, although she still has a ways to go with her balance. Only a week out and she seems to be recovering well.

Tina ~

Congratulations on a successful surgery and what seems to be a splendid recovery! 

Jim
4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
