We just got word from the surgeon (Dr. Friedman) that the tumor was actually a Meningioma. We were told a few times by the House Clinic physicians that the tumor could be this instead of an Acoustic Neuroma based on its structure shown on the MRI scan. The Meningioma tumor is similar to the Acoustic Neuroma, but instead of starting in the ear canal, the tumor originates on the brain's lining. Most Meningiomas are benign and require follow-up monitoring by means of MRI (most likely at 6 months, 1 year, etc.) We are pleased to know that the tumor is removed and are praying for a speedy recovery. Thanks again for all of your support!

Praying for a speedy recovery and safe trip home. I am friends with Lori on facebook. She and my husband know each other from college. The adoption I heard about on facebook was actually yours! Funny how small this world is sometimes. :)
