4 Weeks After Surgery

Happy to say I’m a BS (brain surgery) survivor as of four weeks ago! It was expected that I’d need radiation treatment after my surgery. But my talented doctor got 97% of the tumor, so no radiation is needed. It’s my Christmas miracle!

I’d tell you details of my recovery but I’ve been asleep for most of it. Probably another 4 weeks until I’m 100%.  The left side of my face is still  numb as is the top of my head.  Guess you could say I’m a “numb skull!”  And it’s possible I’ve been brain washed during my recovery. Ha Ha.

When Dr. Meyer did my surgery, my family asked him to add some new jokes in my brain.  My family is disappointed that new humor had not shown up yet. Maybe it’s because I still have some short term (should go away) memory issues.  Now what was I saying???!

Here’s the most important part of my recovery. All of you!  We are overwhelmed with gratitude to everyone who has supported us through this journey.  You are all angels!  The prayers, texts, cards, balloons, flowers, food and treats have lifted our spirits.   Thank you and “cheers” to the people who are drinking wine for me since I can’t drink! Words cannot express how thankful we are for such kind hearted family and friends. You’ve all made a difference!  

THANK YOU!  

Blessings and love to you!
