Things we going along great in life and then we just found out through an MRI that my wife, the joy of my life, has a tumor in her skull area. It is either an Acustic Neuroma or a Meningioma. We are making a trip to Vanderbildt Hospital Tuesday to talk with a Neuro-Surgeon.
The possiblities are two:
(1) Surgery, which could be anywhere from 7 - 12 hours because of its location and the cranial nerves that surround it. She is a singer and voice teacher and singer, and there is a great possibility she will lose her hearing in her right ear plus other complications that go with this surgery.
(2) Radiosurgery - Gamma Knife of Photon Knife that directly attacks the tumor.
We are at a loss of which direction to go, but the doctor who gave us the news told us that it has to be dealt with.
We are both Christians and our hope is in the promises of God who has said He would "direct our paths." We would appreciate any prayers from any of you out there on this site and from any of you who have prayer groups at the church you attend or in your community.
As great as this website is, I am grateful that there is a portion of it dedicated where we can share about the things in our lives that really matter.
Thanks for taking time to read and pray for us.
Our prayers will be continually with you and your wife. Please keep us updated.

Around 15 years ago my wife collapsed with what turned out to be rapidly advancing MS. Her days as a worship leader in church changed and her work as an artist changed. God has been with us through all of the changes and he will walk with you. If your wife wants to talk with someone who has faced similar things PM me and we'll hook them up via e-mail.
If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good. ~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.
You got it. I hope and pray that this turns out well for your wife and you.
These times hit hard emotionally. No doubt about that.
God bless you and yours.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Lord, I pray everything goes well. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
