Feeling Blessed And Loved, Even With Residual Tumor In My Head

By |May 14th, 2018|cte|

Coral pattern underwater that looks like a brain.
Last week was a big week for me. I finally got the staples removed from my head! (Read more about this in my last post.) But more importantly, I got the pathology results from the neurosurgeon.

Staples in my skull a couple weeks after my brain surgery.
I’m having trouble remembering all the details of my recent brain surgery, so I wanted to write down as much as I can recall. Here we go. What started out as a Tuesday night fever on April 24th had me in bed trying to cool down. Later that evening, I recall waking up in an […]
