Icing On The Cake

Here's the updated news regarding Nancy:
"Just spoke with the surgeon. She's all done! Preliminary results show it was as expected, a benign trigeminal schwannoma. He is confident he got it all. Will see her in about 30 min in the ICU. Best outcome possible. All the thoughts and prayers from around the world paid off! We can't thank you enough." (written on Tuesday)


Excellent news! I know that during my process, there was still some unexpected situations, and that things are never simple. If you don't mind, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as her challenges are still at hand. 


On a lighter note, I'll receive the results from my neurological testing next week. You know, that series of testing that I took around the same time as my MRI? Anyway, I'm excited and nervous to check out the results. It's going to be incredibly helpful to see the areas that I need to strengthen (Or, who knows, maybe they'll start taking pictures of me and recording my chart as the biggest genius in all the land. You never know...). All in all I feel like I've baked the cake, and I just have to put icing on it. Things keep coming together, step by step. I can't believe that almost exactly 6 months ago I was in surgery for the resection. Here I was, a girl that had never even broken a bone or had any serious illness. I'd never birthed a child, or had to test my pain threshold. This has been a seriously wild ride. At times I didn't know if I was going to make it back. I'm grateful for all of the support of my friends, my family, and all of those out there that don't know me, but help lift me up. I couldn't be as successful without you.

  1. I'm so glad to hear that your friend is doing well. It really is crazy to think that it really wasn't that long ago that you were also in surgery. You have come a long way, and your amazing progress and positive attitude continue to impress and inspire me. I can't wait to hear the results of the tests...It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they did declare your genious status!
    Love, Sarah B
