Think it's time to start my own blog!

Just coming in to let you all know I got my results today and it is with a heavy heart I have to tell you it is a tumor.

My GP rang this arvo while I was picking films up from the hospital and told me to pull over on the side of road. He then told me it was a low grade astrocytoma and that we have caught it in the early stages. Even so, it still measures 4cm x 2.5cm deep.

Once home, he rang me again to say the Neurosurgeon will be calling me tomorrow to arrange a time to do a biopsy on it and determine exactly what we are dealing with and how to treat it.

Sarah -I am so sorry, this must be a scary time for you. I don't know if you're religious or not, but I really do believe in a loving Heavenly Father, and I'll be praying that he'll be watching over you and your family during this time, and that the doctors will know the best way to make you completely better. Hugs from me and Avery.
