Stereotactic Radiosurgery -- brief summary (more tomorrow)

I arrived at the hospital at 7:10 in the morning.

They attached the frame to my head at 8:00 in the morning.

They took off the frame at 8:00 at night.

I left the hospital fifteen minutes later, at 8:15.

13 hours in the hospital.

12 hours in the frame.

My head hurts.

I am tired.

There were three tumors that grew, not two.  They zapped them all.

In three months, we'll do an MRI to check the results.

I'll post more details tomorrow.

Gotta' go to sleep.

I am glad it is over.

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
