Brain Surgery

I recently had brain surgery to cure Trigeminal, Occipital and Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia.

My husband and I had the luxury of going to the beautiful Oregon Coast for five days just before my procedure. The night before, we went to the Oregon Symphony with my parents, sisters, and brothers-in-law to listen to Motown songs. I was feeling the ocean and hearing the toe-tapping tunes as I rolled into surgery.

I highly recommend if you have an operation coming up, do something you adore the week before or at least the night before. Your recovery will be smoother. It’s science.

I am in slow motion these days. AND allowing my body to go at its own speed during my recovery.

I am so grateful for those who support and surround me with assistance, love, and so much laughter.

I have so much to be thankful for at this time in my life. Thank you for reading my writings and may you find yourself in a place of gratitude.
