On Wednesday October 5th, Nancy went to the clinic at Mayo in La Crosse due to a headache that she had for the last week, loss of balance and an onset of double vision. Once at Mayo, they did a CT scan and found a growth in her brain. The growth was blocking her 4th ventricle that allows spinal fluid to drain from the brain and down to the spincal cord. She was admited to the hospital in La Crosse. After consulting with Rochester Mayo, Nancy was trasfered to Rochester. Once in Rochester, they did a MRI scan and found that it was not a tumor or mass. It was a web like growth that was blocking the fluid from draining. On Thursday October 6th, the Neurosurgery Team took Nancy to the OR where they opened the back lower section of her skull and cleared out the growth and took out some tissue of her brain.
Nancy is recovering in Mayo Rochester right know and has a long road to recovery in front of her. With her being out of work and not knowing when she will be going back, I, her son, set this up to offset the burden of who knows what kind of medical bill she is going to recieve.
I thank anyone who decides to donate and if you can't please keep Nancy in your thoughts and prayers as she ventures down the road to a full recovery and hopefully back to her daily life that she had before this all took place.
