Mary Tyler Moore to undergo brain tumor surgery (slow-growing tumor, usually benign)
SFGate.com ^ | 5/12/11 | AP

Posted on 05/12/2011 9:18:03 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

New York - A representative for Mary Tyler Moore says the veteran sitcom star will have surgery to remove a brain tumor.

Spokeswoman Alla Plotkin says Moore's doctors recommended the elective procedure after monitoring the tumor for some time. Plotkin did not say when the surgery would take place.

It would remove a meningioma (meh-NIN'-jee-OH'-muh), a slow-growing tumor in the membranes that cover the brain. Meningiomas usually occur in older adults and are mostly benign.

My wife wasn’t familiar with the show, and I haven’t seen them since I was a youngster, so we have been watching them regularly on Hulu (alternating between Dick Van Dyke, Perry Mason and the Rockford Files). Most Dick Van Dyke episodes (except ones that touch too closely to the topic of infidelity) are family friendly.

Boy, that Richie kid is either asleep or at a frien’d house 95% of the time. Great supporting cast (More Amsterdam, Rose Marie, Richard Deacon, Carl Reiner). Great television.

Don't forget Pickles Sorrell (Joan Shawlee). She towered at least a foot over Buddy.

Sure she'd be getting the surgery, only in Panama, Belize or India. She has enough money to find a place that allows you to purchase medical care.

And this little number doesn't hurt the visual either.



I pray she comes through the operation fully.

My husband was operated for this in January. Since then we have found so many friends and acquaintences with the same thing. My husband’s prognosis is excellent. His surgery was Jan. 7 and he was home on Jan. 10 and back at work Jan. 11.on
