Just checking in.

Waiting in hospital now for brain surgery.

Now moved up to 3:30pm. Good. Sooner better.

Procedure to drain and remove part of fliud filled cyst behind L ear, not deep, not close to brain. About 1 hour surgery.

Should provide much needed relief from dizziness an weakness. Been bed bound almost a month. Life complete STOP.

Radiation to brain, lower leg, pelvis to continue this week.
