That pressure can cause swelling of the optic nerve and cause you to lose your vision.”To reduce the pressure from the collecting cerebral fluid, Phillips has to have the fluid drawn off every three weeks.The spinal taps reduce the amount of fluid temporarily. But surgery is necessary to reduce the volume of fluid long-term. By Jaine Treadwell Phillips’ brain tumor inspires ‘Going Gray’ effort “After all those years, I finally knew what was wrong with me but the surgery that I need is still a year away,” Phillips said. There are risks involved whether she has the surgery or not.“I could lose my eyesight but I’m at a higher risk not to have the surgery,” she said. “I’m scared but I have hope. With the surgery, there’s  no guarantee but the risks are greater not doing the surgery than the risks of doing it.” Phillips paused.  “I have the cutest kids, ages three and five …” Her voice trailed off but quickly picked up as she talked about the need for greater awareness of brain tumors and the need for greater support of that area of research.Phillips works at Pike County Ford and she initiated a “Going Gray” campaign in support of Brain Tumor Awareness Month, which is May. “I went to my boss and asked about beginning a brain tumor awareness campaign here at Pike County Ford,” Phillips said “I told him it’s good to care about everything. It’s good to care about cancer and heart disease, but what about those of us who are suffering with brain tumors?”Given the go-head, Phillips went home and surfed the Internet and ordered “Going Gray” pins and wristbands for all employees of Pike County Ford and for family members and friends.

It was only diagnosed two years ago. Today, Phillips is facing a brain surgery from which she could not awaken or during which she might wake up.“If the tumor had been found sooner, it could have been treated and I might not have had to have surgery at all,” Phillips said. “My condition had been misdiagnosed for years. It took a brain surgeon to find the tumor.”When Phillips was in sixth grade she began having “migraine  headaches” and suffered with them throughout high school and on into young adulthood. At age 24, Phillips was diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri.last_img read more

Dodgers don’t regret going to Sydney after beating Diamondbacks twice

first_imgThe Dodgers were a lousy team early in the 2013 season. They lost seven in a row to start the month of May, and another 10 of 16 to begin June. The losing streak caused consternation among local fans and nearly cost manager Don Mattingly his job. Behind the scenes, it nearly put the Sydney trip in jeopardy.It was also around this time that MLB needed a commitment from the Dodgers to play two regular-season games in Australia. The league couldn’t have picked a worse time to ask. The team was simply losing too much to think about 2014.“We were a little bitter about it,” Dodgers pitcher J.P. Howell said.That caused a ripple effect across the Pacific Ocean. Australian promoter Jason Moore told two local publications over the weekend that he felt seven years of hard work – and millions of dollars – were nearly wasted because the Dodgers didn’t want to go.“About three months before the initial announcement (in September) I thought it wasn’t going to happen,” Moore told the Australian Financial Review. SYDNEY, Australia >> The closest thing to chaos at the Sydney Cricket Ground over the weekend occurred every time a foul ball sailed into the seats. It’s not every weekend that Major League Baseball visits Australia and drops free souvenirs in the stands. Baseballs aren’t ubiquitous here. They were the cheapest, most coveted souvenir in town.By the middle of Sunday’s game, a 7-5 win for the Dodgers over the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers players grasped this. They were tossing baseballs from the dugout into the seats like it was candy; to paint a better picture, imagine a T-shirt launched from an air gun into an expecting crowd. This was the good kind of chaos.Bad chaos? There was plenty to go around last year, enough to span two continents. The players’ initial concern, Howell said, wasn’t whether or not they would enjoy visiting a foreign country and playing baseball. “The hours of the flight was the only concern. The time change, all that,” he said. “I think among the majority that was the concern.”Hyun-Jin Ryu, speaking shortly after the Dodgers won Sunday’s game, said there was still some concern about re-adjusting to Pacific Time.“I can’t really say how that’s going to be,” he said.At least two practical benefits of the trip were immediately apparent. While the rest of the league completes spring training, the Dodgers are 2-0 and the Arizona Diamondbacks are 0-2. Winning cures many fears.Winning two games on a different continent constitutes a rare team-bonding experience.“I think if we would have lost, we would have been pissed and we would have blamed it maybe on the preparation,” Howell said. “It was a great experience and it’s a great way to start the season off. It brings you closer together, to be honest, because you’re around each other a lot more.”Mattingly was the hitting coach of the 2004 New York Yankees club that began its season in Japan. That year, the Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays split a pair of games in Tokyo, then had five days off before resuming the regular season in Tampa.That club needed nearly a month to get back over .500, but wound up winning 101 games.“You don’t really forget going on that (trip),” Mattingly said. “We’ve documented how far you have to go, how it changes your schedule. For both teams (in Sydney), we get out on the boat the other day together … guys get their wives to come and they get to look around town — your team comes together on a trip like this because you don’t really know anyone else.”In Sydney, the Dodgers got a 2-0 record and the fans got their foul balls.Unlike a year ago – a month ago, even – saying all the right things didn’t seemed forced.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
