Hi Dr Nordquist,
thank you so much for your prompt reply to the question I posed
regarding my wife's 1981 brain tumor. We both appreciated your
helpful comments. I will endeavour to track down her medical history & send you the information you asked for. You may be interested to know you surgeon was a Dr Bashara who worked out of
Dunedin Hospital in New Zealand in the 1980's My wife was told different times years later he was amongst the best brain tumor surgeons in the world at the time, one reason perhaps why she came through!

You are most welcome! I'll look forward to it!
