I CAn't see well enough yet to read all your wonderful messages and heart felt thoughts and prayers, but I can see by the number of views and posts that there must be many! Thank you from the depth of my heart!!!!!!!!!
The tumor on my pituitary gland was successfully removed through a temporary tunnel cut under my nasal track yesterday afternoon. I received some optical nerve and facial palsy interference so as I type this from the ICU at PSU Hospital my vision is out of my left eye only (and that is my weak eye), so please forgive the typos or run on sentences. I just wanted to let you know it all came out well, don't have a full status on future radiation or chem treatment requirements but the pathologist should have that news within the week. In the mean time aside from the pain of them pulling the gauze out of my nostrils I have had no pain since awaking from the procedure 4:30m yesterday afternoon.
Again thanks to all and you'll hear more from me after I get a chance to read the thread.

I'd have to say maybe you should continue using your left eye....your typing seems better this way!!!!
Congrats and God bless the success so far! Prayers continue for you and your family on continuous success
Hi Matt, Hope everything is going well. Take your time with your recovery. Since you have been out, my stove sales have taken a big jump. Can't get the good deals on the refurbished stoves. Jerry & Karen.
Matt, great to hear from you and we are very happy that your surgury was a success. THe gauze in the nose stinks doesn't it . They packed mine ike that after the cut the "windows" in my sinuses several years ago. The wife had it done to and she says them pulling the gauze and the splints out the next week was worse than child birth the natural no pain med way . We'll be praying for a speedy and complete recovery, take care and hope to hear from you soon. Jim
