Before I do the last meet post I have to say that it has been one year today, since my life changed forever. One year ago today I went to the hospital and found out I had a brain tumor. I am a lot more emotional today then I thought I would be. It has been a long hard year, but I am still here and will be for a long time!!!!! Being told I had a brain tumor was the last thing I expected that day, the trauma of surgery and a long long two months in the hospital trying to deal with my low blood pressure, another surgery 3 months later to fix a csf (spinal fluid)leak. Then radiation treatment for six weeks, that is a horror, I didnt have reaction at all to the radiation, just a little fatigue, it was pinpoint to my tumor area, but the mask they make you wear so you cant move during treatment, thats what was horrible. I never knew I was so claustrophobic. I also had at least 4 MRIs, did you know when they do a full head and spine that it takes 3 1/3 hours in that tube! I just have them put me under now, I cant take it anymore, then I wake up and it is all done!
I am happy to be in as good of shape as I am right now, a lot of people that have this kind of tumor, dont do so well. Other than some balance issues,my vision, and my tongue, I am doing pretty good. I have a lot of plans to ride my horse this year and enjoy her! That is one thing I have learned throughout all of this, life is to short, enjoy it do those things that you keep putting off!!! For goodness sake I am driving the F350 with the camper on it and a 4 horse trailer behind it!!! I look forward to my daughters WAHSET year, although it is her last, and her High School graduation in June, and beyond that?I dont know yet but I look forward to what comes along!
Thank you all for reading and becoming part of my new life!
