    When I was 8 years old i witnessed my father having a grand mal seizure in bed. It was a frightening experience for me and to tell you the truth I was afraid for a while after that. My dad was 34 at the time; they diagnosed him with an astrocytoma. Four days later he had a craniotomy. He pulled through; he did have a long recovery though- getting his strength back and he had headaches and dizziness for the longest time. His tumor was benign though. He went through six weeks of radiation which did him well. 14 years later, in 2002, his tumor started coming back. He got into a bad car accident b/c of a seizure. Again he had surgery. They got most of the tumor, but this time it affected his left side. He is doing good now, and has regained back alot of his strength in his left arm. It's still a rough road for him, getting that he still gets confused alot and needs to take things extra slow. He is back to work now about six hours a day and does a lot of stuff, but just needs to be careful. He is continiuing to get chemotherapy- he takes oral meds and gets Vincristine injections. Overall, he is doing pretty good from my standpoint. So I would just like to say that I will keep your husband and family in my thoughts. I know that this is not easy to face. I am wishing you all the best and for a full recovery. Keep strong!
