The first 48 hours i was home from the hospital from an emergency craniotomy, I spent most of it completing my taxes (It was that time of year)...lol. I had an accident, ended up in someone's living room while driving, and found out I had a huge tomor that should of rendered me diagnosed/ incapacitated months earlier if i wasnt so stubborn.
After that I was most concerned with getting everything in order "just in case" since I had two small children and a wife that would have been left without their primary bread winner. My family had some great resources and I was not alone in getting anything done from the will, trust, etc.
After all of that was settled, beyond worrying about a pending divorce, I spent most of my time looking for stories of survivors and seeking out a mentor who had been through what i was going through. In between treatments I think i spent about 90% of my time awake on the internet reading and doing research. I reached out to immermanangels.com for a mentor, and was linked up with Greg who had been through the same things i was going through, including the divorce at almost the same time i was going through it.
I also searched out alternative therapies, diets, etc that would help me along the way, including making it through the initial treatment and also long term quality of life. So far it has been over 1 year and my scans keep coming back stable, and the latest one came back at the worst stable, and possibly improving. Never thought that was possible, but I am happy with that news.
