View Full Version : John Elks / brain tumor

04-17-2010, 10:15 AM
I'm very happy to say I'm out of the hospital now, although I do have some treatments to under-go in Clarksville, TN at GateWay Hospital. I had to under-go the same treatment twice because the 1st time around the doctor was only able to get the 1st 70% out because the area the tumor was in was simply too bloody. He had to place a drainage tube in so the extra blood could drain out. He was finally able to get the last 30% out, or at least he thinks he was able to. There might be a piece or two left in my brain which will have to be removed by radiation therapy. Over-all though, I'm doing MUCH better now & just thought I'd let you all know that like I had promised before I went in. I'm up in Clarksville now because that's where my mom & sister brought my van while I was still at Summit before I was transfered to SkyLine. I will be at GateWay from now until then because I gotta be supervised for a while longer. Thank you to everyone again that sent their thoughts & prayers my way.
