so THAT happpened

I lost 50 pounds in 6 weeks. Couldn’t eat, couldn’t hold anything down. Then my equilibrium went off. I took a terrible fall in the shower. I couldn’t get comfortable. Finally my family became so concerned that they called my doctor who feared, quite correctly, that my brain had swollen from the last gamma knife procedure. My brain has actually swollen and shifted 8mm to the right. It has caused visual deficits which means I cant see things properly on the left side. My arm and leg also have deficits so walking, driving, etc are all restricted.

The steroids seem to be working to bring down the swelling though. (if not, it means brain surgery in a few weeks to reduce the swelling). I spent the week in the hospital but I am home now. Got home just in time to see my daughter off to her senior prom!

Hope all is well with everyone else!

  1. I am happy you got to see your daughter go to her senior prom. Hope the steroids keep doing their thing. You should gain some weight taking them as well … hopefully.
