|Hey everyone! I know that I have not been around for a long time....sorry! In July I had to have surgery to remove a tumor from the lining of my brain-not cancerous-and i am going to have another surgery on 9-29-10 to repair a leak-fluid that is around my brain is leaking into my sinus cavity and coming out my nose. This surgery is not nearly as rough as the other one and i should only be in the hospital for 2 days. Thankfully my recovery time will only take about 2 weeks before i can start working. I will be starting a new job at the same hospital that i worked at before, but it is a new position on a new unit that is forming and I will be sort of a supervisor!!!! So, in short, things have kind of fallen apart for me, but it looks like things are coming back together better than they were before! I have missed you all very much and hope that all is well with you, love you!!!|
|well it has been just over a month since my surgery and i am doing great. think i will be headed back to work very soon. unfortunately i no longer have the internet at the house and that is why i have not been around and it is way too hot to go anywhere in my car because i have no a/c. i went on my vacation to WA less than a week after surgery and had the greatest time!!! if you dont know i went to WA to see my boyfriend from back in 9th grade. i went and spent a week with him and we had a blast together!! he is such a good man and he was so good to me....looks like i may end up moving up there (lived there up until 6 years ago) and try to make a go of it whith him. i could get used to being spoiled for once!!! i have about a half of an inch of hair growth so far from them shaving me bald before surgery....not nearly enough for my taste! and the gray......since i am used to having my hair colored! i thought that i only had like ten to twenty, but i had a rude awaking there! it isnt real bad, but i guess i shouldnt make fun of my mother anymore. well i hope that everyone is doing really good and having a wonderful summer!!|
|For those of you that have read about what is going on with me and even those who haven't, i have had my surgery and am doing better then i expected. i should get to go home in a few days. there have not been absolutely any noticeable side effects to the surgery except for weakness for the weakness from being on bed rest for a week. |
I hope that everyone is doing as well as i am and even better!
|Hello to all of my DN friends. You have probably noticed i have not been around recently because i have had a lot going on and it was more than i could have ever imagined! I have had a lot of headaches in the last 3 months and don't think i have gone a day in the last month without one. They just kept getting worse and worse and i knew that there had to be a reason, so i went to the doctor and she scheduled some tests. I went to have a CT-scan on my lunch break on Friday and needless to say i never made it back to work. They found something that they were concerned enough about that they called me back and wanted to admit me to the hospital. They didn't have a neurosurgeon on call, so they transported me to another town that did and started running more tests. Today they told me that they think that i have a meningioma==a tumor that is on the membrane that covers the brain. They are talking about keeping me for a week on IV steroids to control the swelling the tumor has caused==reason for the headaches, and then do surgery to remove the tumor. It is a very scary thing to find out that someone is going to be cutting your head open, but i am doing my best not to freak out too much. Thank God that i have a great family that is here by my side and friends that are very concerned about me. My co-workers had gifts to me before the ambulance could load me up to take me to the other hospital, and my manager came down and sat with me and made sure that i was getting good care. I could not ask for any better treatment than what i have gotten from anyone of them...friends, family, and co-workers. I love them all. I want you all to know that i really appreciate that you all have been stopping by and leaving me cards and greetings even though i have not been able to do the same for you. I love you guys! |
|Thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot to me. I wish that 'him not playing games with my head' was true. He has been doing things trying to get me to break up with him and when that didn't work(because I wasn't snooping through things like he thought I was) he had to do the dirty work himself. I just don't understand what the problem is. He acted jealous of me talking to a friend last night on the computer because he made me smile. He is lying to me about things and now he is acting like he is suicidal! For right now I have no choice for financial reasons to stay with him for a few more weeks. That is not healthy for either one of us, especially since I don't know from one minute to the next if I want to love him or hurt him. It would be way to easy for me to hurt him in a way that I don't think that he would ever recover from. But I am not that kind of person. He has been hurt and betrayed really badly in the past and I could never add to that. I'm not even sure anymore if he told me the truth about it anymore, maybe he got what he deserved. I doubt that I will ever know the whole truth or that I really want to know. All I really know is that my friend 2hot2handle has been a big help and that this would be a lot harder if I didn't have him to lean on. We are just friends and live a long ways away from one another, but I feel like he is my best friend and I owe it all to the Nexus. Again, thank you for your wonderful and supportive words, they mean a lot and made me feel better. I hope that all is going better for you and that you are doing well.|
