View Full Version : wife's weekend adventure (UPDATE: GOOD NEWS!!)

02-20-2007, 08:52 AM
Hi folks,

I really struggled with whether to post this or not.
But you folks are my family and I thought it best to
let all of you know.

Some of you might have heard about my
wife's weekend adventure. But just in case; here goes.

Debbie fell on the ice and bumped her head on the stairs
while at her mother's on Sunday.
We took her to the ER to be checked for a concussion.

During a routine examination the ER doctor spotted what looks
to be a pituitary aneurism.

A second test yesterday, a CT scan, proved inconclusive BUT showed

We've been referred out to a neurosurgeon at Methodist.

At this point I have no idea what's going to be the outcome of all of this.

I'll keep you all posted. We covet your prayers.

Debbie, Shane and I want to extend our thanks and appreciation for
all you prayers and well wishes during this very scary time.

We went to the specialist in Indianapolis today. He does not believe that Debbie has
an aneurism and does not think that whatever is there is life threatening.
However there *is* something there and he will know more after doing
an MRI on March 5.

Just that much was a huge weight lifted from our shoulders I can tell you!!

I will be at TransWorld as Deb has done everything short of pack my
bags for me. She says that's what the doctor meant by removing stress
from her life for the next two weeks; getting rid of me!!! :D

Honestly, it was the first time Deb laughed since Sunday when all of this

Again, thanks to you, my haunt family, for everything!!

It was great to hear this update from you at TW Virgil! It was also great to finally get to meet you in person! I wish we had been able to spend more time hanging out. We'll be keeping your family and Debbie in our prayers and sending positive thoughts and energy for further good news from the the MRI procedure. Congratulations again on all the exciting things happening with your music career Virgil. You deserve every bit of it and more!

OKay.. the MRI is done and the news is good....

Deb has two tumors BUT both are benign....

She'll have to go in once every 6 months for
a follow-up MRI BUT all is well for now.

Deb wants to personally thank everyone here on
the forum that prayed and sent positive vibes
our way. It is such a blessing to know that there
is such a huge group of souls out there pulling
for you!!

I can tell you things are alot brighter here because
of you kind folks....my haunt family....
what else can I say?


03-12-2007, 02:58 PM
Awesome news Virgil... Any chance of removing the tumors for good? I am so happy to hear this. Virgil, we all LOVE YOU! -Tyler

great news...

They want to avoid "poking around in there" as, to my understanding,
one is near the optic nerve and the other is near an artery.

Believe me the words "brain surgery" are not in use around
my household right now! :wink:

Deb's neurologist wants to do just keep an eye on things....
which is fine with us!!! :D

03-12-2007, 04:39 PM
sigh of relief, glad it be benign.....
