Brad and I had been posting back and forth the week before his surgery. My migraines had led me to get an MRI which had uncovered a brain tumor too. My tumor is different than Brad's I have a brainstem Glioma that is in-operable and slow growing. I am so sorry he had to have a second surgery. The first one must have been difficult but to have another must have been awful. You both are very brave and this will only make you stronger and appreciate the little things in life all the more. I know since I was diagnosed I see the world differently. The little issues that used to seem bigger before I had a brain tumor don't seem to bother me so much. And the little joys like my three year olds kiss mean so much more to me. My thoughts are with you and Brad during this difficult time and I wish him a speedy recovery and I hope too see him back on the boards himself as soon as he can. I will keep my fingers crossed that the rest of his recovery goes well. And thank you for keeping us posted.
I'm sending healing Vibes your guys ways.....I just know , after the brain get's over the shock of being disturbed, He will start recovering and you will see him getting better and better every day...I have a inoperable brain aneurysm...I had attempted surgery 18 months ago...I ended up with a stroke with a nasty clot...They gave me TPA and it removed the biggest part, but to this day < I still have some clot that is attached to a stent they placed in the artery that day..When I got home. I felt so weak for 3-6 months..And really did not get my full strength back yet...Just to let you know..What he may feel like...I stayed in bed for about 6 weeks, well mostly, I was so weak and felt so tired....I'm still on blood thinners and will be the rest of my life (cause of the clot ) and the stent placement...But with my surgery was not a success. But a failure...Blood is still reaching the aneurysm. But it hasn't grown--so far...Just be So happy, That they was able to get it all and he will recover in the long run...You guys are very lucky...I will be saying prayers for his continued recovering...Hugs, Cindy
