No unfortunately i had the scan yday and it said the tumor has
grown very large now because of this i would be cut off from the
things i call life also there wud have been a much heavier risk of
me dying straight away today. So i have chosen not to have this but
live slightly longer 2 years at the most and enjoy my family
friends and things i enjoy doing.   I thot my outcome would be so
much brighter but yet again i have to keep fighting to enjoy wat i
have left. Dont be sad.

Wee, am sad but in a way happy that at least the next two years will
have a quality of life that is better than if  you had the
operation. I wish I was as brave as you, Louise, to calmly say I have
two years left at the most. I wonder if there is a way to get your
records shipped to M.D. Andersen Cancer Center so our NF doctors here
could take a look at them. Are you flying back now or driving?

  11. Saturday – had a round of lay-offs. My partner who serve my primary back up got laid off. I was sad about it. They tend to let the good people go, but the one who are so-so, they stay.

  14. Sadly for your friend brain tumors are one of the highest morbidity for cancers but not even half the amount of money dedicated to research such as more well known cancers.

    My 10 year old with nf1 died earlier this year from a high grade astrocytoma (brain tumor) of her thalamus. I asked her doctor did her nf lead to this since I knew of two other kids she went to nf camp with in MD who had been diagnosee with cancer. She said the incidence is slighlty higher like 2-3% yet it seems I am constantly meeting or hearing of those with nf1 who are diagnosed with cancer.

    She had never had problems with her nf1 before except for some learning problms that were not diagnoseed. She was evalutated by a neuro-psychologist just before starting radiation and they found all the problems I had been descrbing for years.

  16. Wee Lou passed away suddenly on Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 4:15pm.

  17. Thanks for the update Lou. I am very sad for the passing of this delightful young woman. You could tell that Louise loved life and her friends and that she valued her quality of life more than quantity. She deserved to have both. She was very courageous.

    I really regret that my wife and I had to cancel our trip to Edinburg last Fall. Louise and I had planned to meet for lunch. She will be missed.
