I thought I would take a few minutes to let you all know exactly what is going on....or at least as much as I know.
We met with the neurosurgeon last Thursday (3/7) and decided (of course) that we would have him remove this little tennent in my brain......I mean I don't want in there any longer than it needs to be!!!! :-)
The surgery was schedule for yesterday (3/12) at Loma Linda University. We were there, did all of the pre-op stuff on Monday and then showed up for the final stages yesterday only to have them postpone the surgery because they did not have any ICU rooms that would be available for me after the recovery time. DARN!!! (and they had just hooked up the IV, too!!!) Anyway, I am now scheduled to have this "Left Frontal Craniotomy" on Friday (3/15) at Loma Linda. I will try to have my husband post a status on how things went, but don't hold your breath!!! My goal is to be able to do it myself early next week as soon as I am home.
Guess that is it. I just have lots to do and need to get to it. So........until I am able to post again, just know that you all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I have learned through this latest ordeal, that God is ALWAYS there to hold our hands and lead us through whatever comes. As my pastor said on Sunday, sometimes we have to step out alone......but we are never alone for God is always there to hold us up. And He certainly does!!!! Keep the faith and hang in there. You can all do it-----its a piece of cake!!! (Yum.....cake!! Maybe I'll go and have some!!)
Also.......a B-I-G THANK YOU
