OK now that I am feeling great again we go back to MD Anderson tomorrow for some more testing. I will say one good thing about it; I am no longer having Vision problems, so the medication they are giving me is working. But the side affects of the medication are really bad.

I will give you all an up-date when we get back
Thanks

in the morning at 7am then follow up with neurologist, hope I spelled that right, about the brain swelling problem. Vision problems have been great for the past week, no blindness at all and no pain in the head. I think they are finally starting to get to the root cause of the problem, just hope there is a permanent fix to all this.

Thanks again for all the prayers and thought

Back home again and doing great. The medication they are giving me has stopped the Blindness, but has had some very bad side affects. Had to get off the medication and re-start it little by little giving the body time to adjust, that seams to be working. Did another C/T but will not get the results until next week when I see the eye doctor.

Also my eye doctor is one of the best doctors I have ever had, She calls to check up on my condition and sets up appointments for me with other doctors at MD Anderson if she thinks I need them. No other doctor has ever done this for me before, She really cares, it is like I am a person and not just a number. Here again the Female doctors are more caring then the male doctors.

I am doing really good, little or no pain in the head, I can see with out the fear of going blind, and the infection in the Mastoids are also way down. I do have problems with my teeth but that is another story, and the good news on that is my company decided to pay the $2,700 for the Dynasplint unit I need to help me open the Jaw so the dentist can work on my teeth.

It seams I have been really blessed lately and I believe it is all because of the prayers offered up by all my friends

Thanks you all and God bless and be with you.

I am so happy you have found some relief & help Hondo. It is so frustrating when there is no communication with your medical team. It sound's like they are on top of it & I pray for a clean scan.
God Bless

Hondo,

Great news I am so glad you are seeing some success. I pray for continued blessings in your journey.

Interesting you found the female doctors more caring as I found my male doctors more caring but then I only had to deal with one female medical oncologist and I ended up firing her because she completely lacked patient care skills.

But this is not about me it is about you and I am so glad the blindness has stopped and I will pray for good results fo the CT scan.

Hondo you continue to amaze me with your continuing positive attitude that something will be found to help. Then when you finally get news how thankful you are for the help. We are thrilled to hear your on your way with relief and help.

I am betting MD Anderson have dentists on board or connected that have huge experience with H&N Cancer treatments.

So thrilled you have a game plan in front of you.
