    Procedure or Surgery

    I had brain surgery where a stage 2 Oligodendroglioma tumor was found on my front left which is cancer . This was found when I had a grand-mal seizure and taken to the ER where I had a MRI that showed the tumor and the surgeon after talking with 3 different surgeons I found the best surgeon ever and he was able to remove about 90% and I have had follow up's since with another seizure onset 2010. I take Carbamazepine 3 times each day and Keppra 2 pills twice a day to control the seizures. Only because of God have I been able to continue to work even though most days I am exhausted when I get home. Matthew 8:17 has been a great inspiration to me and increased my faith in God whom through Him all things are possible and everyd day I totally surrender my everything to Him because He is my everything! Trust and Faith in God will get us all through everything !
