Today is August 15, 2008. Thanks so much for staying in touch via this amazing site, compliments on Donna M. It's been one month since my brain surgery. Interesting experience, but try to avoid if at all possible! I feel better with each new day. At first it was difficult to distinguish the small gains I made on a daily basis, but now I'm on a different medication to prevent seizures, and noticable changes are happening daily. You guys are the best support system ever. Just knowing so many people are interested, care , and love me makes every day worthwhile! Support, support, support! Can't imagine doing this without you.
On Tuesday I met with the radiation/oncologist. Dr. Sombeck was amazingly kind and considerate. He wanted to answer any question we had for him. At this point I want answers, but have limitations on how much I want to know. I actually got to see the MRI of my brain--before and after surgery. (It was quite awesome to see the details!) So anyway, I'm gathering information at a rate I can handle. Lots I do know already, because of my training. Information is power, so before long I know I'll be deeply embedded in lots of tumor information.
Thanks again for all your love and support. I'll continue to send more updates. And thanks too, for loving and supporting Cathy.
Lots of love,
