I'm so sorry to hear about your wife, I really do hope everything is ok.
I myself was diagnosed with a brain-stem tumor 3 years ago, which had grown into all my nerves and caused a condition called Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Which effected the left side of my face..this was terrible i can't even put into words how painful this was.
It got so bad that in march 2011 i had to have surgery, my neurosurgeon is in Florida, and out of the many doctors we went to see, he was the only one
that gave to us straight. 8 hours later and all my nerves scrapped, wrapped, and 70% of the tumor removed, all is well. This shook our world to its
very core, it has taken everything we have, we didn't have insurance and just to add insult to injury, we have to declare bankruptcy now.
But even though last year was the most difficult, we are both glad the procedure is done.
I know the anxiety,worry,stress everything that this kind of situation can do to people, my husband was a wreck as i am sure you are... be strong for
her like you probably have always been, She will know you will be worried.
But from my stand point i tried to hide the fact that i was scared witless, for my husbands sake, i was seeing what it was doing to him more than me.
i had some feelings about the whole process that i couldn't even share with him.
Be strong and be there for her. my thoughts and prayers are with you both.
There is light at the end of every tunnel, even though it doesn't seem like it.
