    WHere does your sis live?
    she's right in upper pottsgrove!

        my mom will be see a nuerologist at penn as well at the end of the month, and we'll have see what he says too. but so far it seems pretty positive considering her age and this being just diagnosed the outcome looks good!

        but again thanks for all your thoughts and prayers you guys are very sweet and supportive. i just needed to vent a little and thought i'd put it out there.....

        thanks!
        I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this. I actually work in the Neurology Dept. at Penn. Let me know if you need anything!

              I just wanted to say that I will keep you mom in my prayers. I know just how hard this must be for you. My mom had to have brain surgery 2 years ago to remove a tumor (non cancerous).

              I'll pray for her and your family.

                  Everything went fine, thank god. She's such a trooper and just a fighter in general. The worst part about it for her was that they had to shave her head. (So she says) :-)

                  Obviously, it was a lot scarier for me and my sisters, but God truly does work miracles. So keep praying!!

                    UPDATE!

                    So my mom saw Dr. O'Malley at Penn on tuesday, she feels more comfortable now with her diagnosis and felt more comfortable with him. She felt like he was more knowledgeable about the disease and she found that more comforting. They have given her a diagnosis of NF2 and believe it might even be Schwannomatosis, which is even more rare!

                    I've decided to go on a joint appointment with my mom for our genetic counselling, it'll be a family affair!

                      That sounds really good. I'm glad she found a doctor that she likes, that's really important. Keep us updated!
