Posted by on Apr 15, 2015 in Cancer Goddess, Cancer Healing, What Cancer Feels Like | 0 comments

My laser brain ablation surgery to take care of a 3-4 cm recurrent metastatic melanoma brain tumor was on February 3, 2015. This post is one of a series of updates that I wrote in the days following, which now I I finally have some energy/motivation to post. Some of you have been kindly inquiring as to my status, which I so appreciate! ~~~~~ Awoke this morning at 4:44 am, about 8 hours shy of my nightly sleep needs, and we drove an hour through the lightening dark to arrive at my Gamma Knife...

Brain Surgery Tomorrow!

[This post was written for Facebook in 2014 when I was getting ready for brain surgery. I’m finally catching up now.] I feel scared. I feel joyful. I feel nervous. I feel peaceful. I believe my soulmate husband will do everything in his power to try to make sure all goes well. This man has said he has my back, and I believe him. Exhausted. Got up super early (7am, 4-5 hours earlier than I usually awake) and we drove up to LA so I could have a brain MRI and an EKG and we could meet with...

It took me weeks to admit it it, but I’m doing way worse than I was. I sleep 11-12 hours a day now. Long, restless nights where I wake up many times. It’s hard to wake up in the morning. I fight it. I hardly leave the house. Going outside feels bewildering — so many things to look at, feel, remember. Everything goes by me so fast.

February 3. Very early in the morning. I’m happy to finally have my next steps. Last week we saw a rockstar neurosurgeon guy in LA, the day after my soulmate husband went on a get-things-done rampage of awesomeness and magically extracted phone numbers of area neurosurgeons who do laser probe brain surgery. They do exist! A very small handful, but still. Yay! And my beloved snagged a next-day slot with the rockstar guy, who seemed very good and very capable. (I don’t remember much...
