Here we go again!

Feb 18, 2000, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor-a Schwannoma which was pressing on my right optic nerve causing me major headaches, double vision and my eye was not moving. I had surgery to remove the tumor, and all seemed to go well, until end of last year when I started having double vision. I was diagnosed with another Schwannoma only bigger this time and the symptoms are worse than the last time. I will have surgery this Thursday (5 days before my 49th birthday) to remove most of the tumor and go back later to go under the Gamma Knife (radiation) to remove whats left of the tumor. I know whats ahead of me but my faith in the Great Physician -Jesus Christ I know he will be with me during this difficult time.
