Today we left for LA to consult with a new doctor from The House Clinic. This clinic specializes in operating on Acoustic Neuromas and has the best doctors in the field.
Once we arrived the doctors took a look at Dan's MRI and soon we had three doctors consulting with us about the possibility of having the surgery today. They were concerned with some swelling that the 5cm tumor was causing on the brainstem. As rushed and quick as it all was, the opportunity to have some of the best neurosurgeons work on Dan was right in front of us. It took us all by surprise but Dan was admitted to St. Vincent hospital across the street.
After being processed through the ER, Dan was wheeled into surgery. We have utmost confidence in our doctors and have no doubt that this was the best solution to this problem. Surgery is scheduled to last about 10 hours so we should be wrapping things up around midnight. We will keep all of our friends and family updated through this blog. Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, calls, texts and concern. Please feel free to share this link with others.
