Good luck, Jim, with your treatment and recovery.  Hope all goes according to plan, and that little bugger in your head will soon join the others in the great beyond!!   ;D

Hey Jim,

I bet you are doing great with Cyberknife and sure you are doing well!  Congrats on becoming a "postie" (post-treatment). I just got my good news on my CK treatment (8 months ago, update now posted in the "Post-Treatment section of this forum) and know you will too!

Congrats!

Good Luck Jim. I am close by in the Great State Of Kansas. Someone asked me why I did not choose CK at Boulder since I am closer than Baltimore where I went for my FSR. Well I was convinced in my situation-being an NF2 that FSR was the best choice. Here is hoping CK works for you-Ron
