Thanks, Lisa - for providing a link to the video from Saint Joseph's hospital in Wisconsin.  It was an interesting overview of the Gamma Knife process.  It's really amazing how much detailed medical information is available on the internet but unfortunately, AN info is a bit hard to come by.  This video is an exception - and so, appreciated.  :)

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.
