    Other Care (Oncologist / Radiologist Appointments): I just had my first appointment with the Oncologist and have my first meeting with the Radiologist next week. I'm told I'll have 6 weeks of Chemo/Radiation, off 28 days, then another round of Chemo.

    Oh No (Stitches started dissolving to quick.): I had my follow up from Surgery on a Tuesday and the Surgeon said everything looked great and was pleased. Wednesday, I was sitting at home and felt my hair get wet. I felt it and it was a clear sticky liquid coming from where the incision was. It only lasted briefly but did it a couple different times. Thursday Morning I woke up and my hair was drenched! So, I called the surgeon and he wanted to see me to make sure it wasn't an infection or something. He found some of the stitches were dissolving to quickly, allowing spinal fluid to leak! He decided to put regular stitches over the top of the dissolvable ones. During this process, the stress of everything apparently triggered a seizure and I was back in ICU overnight. Thankfully, it was 1 seizure and no others but now I can't drive for 6 months! :(

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had "Awake Brain Surgery" to remove as much as they could. I got really sick during surgery and the first 12 hours after surgery. However, I was released and home 3 days later.

    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): I started having migraines and the medication they put me on, did not work. So, I was sent for a CT and they found an unidentifiable shadowing. I had a follow up MRI and found the tumor in my left frontal lobe.
