here. The imaging showed what he was looking for and what I had already suspected from my searches online. I have an acoustic neuroma. He said the usual treatment is to simply monitor these things, but he feels this is large enough that he is referring me to yet another doctor who has more knowledge and can better decide on treatment options - surgery seems the most likely.
This specialist is in Saskatoon, a good six hours drive away, so Rick and I will have to make it at least an overnight trip. I don't know how long it will be before I know when my appointment is scheduled.
I feel a bit foggy, knowing I will need to be courageous and patient in waiting and also knowing that patience is a gift I have difficulty holding on to.
I'm reminded that the words the Lord gave to me for 2012 were courage - focus - trust. With the year almost half over I re-read His message, humbled and awestruck and again in His hands.
