(R's tumor to be removed is near the Amygdala & Hypocampus...as long as it doesn't cover the cortex, it will be removed)June 28th!
Sounds like a good day for a temporal lobe resection.
It's also the birthday of a sweet friend from my home town, so that's a good omen right?
We are in a slight case of shock because the date has come so quickly. It seems fast to us. Yesterday felt like a bucket of ice water being thrown in our faces. This whole neuro surgery business is all too real now.
However, I must say I ASKED for this. Seriously, God or One Power or whatever you call it, was listening and answered my spoken prayer because two days ago I voice that I was going to request a surgery date for the first week of July because I wanted the summer for R to heal and not to have R in the throws of surgery the same week as W starts Grade 1.
And now look what happened! HE listened. HE answered.
So, I need to "suck it up Princess" and get on with it!
Organize care for W.
Prepare both boys for surgery. How do you prepare a 4yr old to have his brain cut into?
More appointments. Cardiology is next. Then the MRI and Interictal Spect.
Let's be honest here. I am freaked out. Completely and utterly. I am negative and feeling as if the glass is half empty. My husband, sweet soul that he is, is my support. The voice of reason, common sense, etc. I need to emulate him. And will try. For the sanity of all involved!
