    My mother in law is having her brain biopsy. We're OK but very stressed.

    Body parts crossed and praying it goes well. Hopefully it can be easily removed.

    Thanks so much. She's come through the biopsy and they are following standard procedure by keeping her in ICU for the time being. Based on what was seen during the biopsy, they are hopeful that the tumor will respond well to steroid treatment. We'll know more in a few days.

    TM - I'm glad things went well, and will keep many body parts crossed that pathology comes back with- something innocuous. The thought that steroids might do the trick sounds very *very* good. Good thoughts going up for your mother in law and your family.

    well good preliminary news! I hope they are right. Glad she came through and I hope she does well in recovery. I also hope you get some rest. I know it is tiring to be there for someone you love going through all of that.
