Roseanne Cash to undergo brain surgery
It sounds like she's OK. I always thought she was kind of neat, I hope this all goes well for her. And, I realize I misspelled her name in the subject, I'm a dork.
NEW YORK - Rosanne Cash is facing brain surgery for a "rare but benign condition" and must cancel the last four concerts on her tour.
"Rosanne is expected to make a full recovery and will return to the studio to complete the recording of her debut for Manhattan Records," the music label said Tuesday. "Ms. Cash will also resume her live performance schedule in the spring and will complete a new book to be published by Viking in early 2009."
Cash, who lives in New York City, will "undergo brain surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital for a rare but benign condition," the statement said. A spokeswoman for the record company didn't immediately return a message seeking further details.Just thinkin' out loud....

I hadn't heard about this, thanks for posting it, Hipmama.
My favorite song that she does is a cover of her Dad's Tennessee Flat-top Box. I just love the way she does it, and even prefer it over Johnny's version!

Many prayers for her. The very 1st time I heard "TN Flat Top Box" I fell in absolute love with it, and pitched a fit till my parents bought me the record.

I had surgery for the same thing at 38 years of age. I hope and pray that Rosanne Cash can bring awareness to the world about Chiari Malformations. I pray for her speedy recovery. There is a little girl who suffers from a Chiari Malformation, that is much worse, as it was discovered in her childhood. I am in awe of this child who has this website (I read about her in People Magazine).
http://www.baylieforbrains.com/ (I don't know if I can put this link here, I learned about Baylie while reading a "People Mag", but I keep going back to read about her life... I had a lot of time to be "okay" with the Chiari type one malformation, and Baylie hasn't been so lucky, one surgery is a breeze, but this little trooper has had 7 surgeries!)
While reading the article about Rosanne Cash, I think they said the surgery is an elective one, in my situation, it was the only way I would or could see the age of 39. Today, I am older than 39 and am able to see my kids grow, no longer have blinding headaches, can speak without a stutter (most of the time). I am so thankful that this condition was found in time for me to have a LIFE without immense pain and allowed me to take care of my kids!
From someone who's been there, I pray that Roseanne has a speedy recovery and is able to use this adversity for the good of others!

Baylie (in the above link) has been such an inspiration for me, I can't even explain it.
Best wishes to Rosanne, many prayers also!
