Some news...at last!

 
Last night at 8 'o clock I received a phone call from the neurosurgeon.  Can you believe it...on a Sunday night...don't these people rest.
He told me that he looked at the angiogram and that the lesion is not pressing against any major nerves.  He admitted that their is some images that are difficult to interpret.  He has sent the angiogram to Professor Taylor at the Grootte Schuur hospital in Cape Town.  Okay...so I bet you know what I did next:)

I asked Mr Google who Professor Taylor is...and it appears that he "has considerable experience with the surgical and interventional management of cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations". ( Quoted from the UCT website). 

As soon as he has feedback he will phone me again.

  4. haha ! this Dr Google is sometimes like a double edged sword when it comes to medical matters . I have learnt to leave out what I dont necesarily like to hear sometimes- but that could border on denial for me .

    Keep on praying ! Keep on keeping on , Lynette !

  5. Such a relief to hear that there is no pressure on major nerves!

    Also that there is definite forward motion in the medical process -
    It is obvious that they want to do the very best they can for Wynand as you say - 8 on a Sunday is not the norm.

    I guess these things are comforting to you, my friend.
