Reality Check

What happens when you actually pick up the phone and dial a phone number? Well, hopefully you will reach a live person on the other end ~ if not there's a message asking you to leave your number so someone can call you back at their earliest convenience. Stick with me, the brain tail has been beating up on me today and I can't brain 2day I have the dumb!

Procrastinating aside ~ I called TCI today ~ they called me right back and now I have an official surgery date for the brain tail renovation ~ DECEMBER 3, 2008. I know it's the right decision, because the moment I hung up the phone I felt a great weight just lift off my shoulders ~ and ~ my co-workers all commented that there was something seriously wrong with me because I was so happy to have scheduled surgery! Answered prayers have a tendency of making me grin from ear to ear ~ can't help myself ~ God is good and in charge ~ so all is good.

Then, to top it all off, I connected with one of my Everest heroes on FB today ~ Seriously ~ did someone leave a giant window open in the universe today? I guess I have come to realize that we are all people, struggling to find our way on this planet ~ all searching for something to give our lives more meaning. So ~ sooooo not comprehending how kindred hearts are connected on this planet, but I know that I am learning to go with the flow. There are dreams out there to chase and I need to get started!

After all the I WANT TO BELIEVE hype I hope you haven't been disappointed in my lack of posting about what I thought about the movie. I am working on it ~ just still putting all my thoughts together ~ but I am getting close. More later ~ brain tail trying to make an emergency exit out of the back of my head ~ calling it a day. Wait a minute ~ is it really August 1st tomorrow?!

I know that excited feeling of..Im finally going to get some relief!! I went into surgery with a smile on my face. My husband thought I was nuts. Its like opening a new chapter in a book. The anxious feeling of not knowing what is going to take place next. You are in my thoughts and prayers..

Be Well

You are not the only one, and I am not apparently the only one who look forward to these dates. I have my assesment with Dr. Oro Aug 11th and have had it booked for 4 months. My wife remarked that I am more cherry as of late, of course it is because I am that much closer to the answer.

I hope to have decompression shortly there after, as long as I have no tethered cord, and get this thing gone!!

I will be praying for you!

I practically skipped into the hospital for my surgery, in fact I think I might have in an effort to make my family feel better. It's not "normal" to be excited about brain surgery, but it's also not normal to have a brain tail!
