Thanks!! I've been really busy this week as they had a lot of things going on on campus for senior week. I officially moved back home today, but I will be back on campus Saturday for Phi Beta Kappa induction & Sunday for graduation. It feels strange to be all moved out & know I'm not going back, but at the same time it still doesn't seem real.
I did really well this semester & overall; I really couldn't be happier. I got one B and the rest were A- or above. My final gpa for all four years is 3.824, so I will be graduating with both honors in general study & honors in my major (biology). I also got the most prestigious senior biology award & I found out yesterday that I made Phi Beta Kappa, which is a huge honor, as only 20/600 seniors were selected! Looking back I'm really shocked at how well I did despite all my pain & visual problems. I definitely couldn't have done it without all the support of everyone here!
I spoke with the neurosurgeon's office today & everything is all set for next Friday & the following Friday. I'm really looking forward to my stimulator trial. I can't say that I've every "looked forward" to a surgery before, but this one really has the potential to make a huge difference for me pain wise so any minor surgical pain is well worth it. I really hope it helps. I've got a good feeling about
I'm glad to hear that your daughter had a great semester as well! Making it through year one of college is a big accomplishment! You should be very proud of her!
