The final countdown........(to surgery)

OK in 9 short days I will be a fresh post-op from brain surgery. Hopefully I will be nicely medicated and sleeping comfortably.

I forgot to mention before that they may not be able to remove the whole tumor. Since it is quite large and because it is in an awkward spot they may have to leave parts so they do not do any severe nerve damage. So this will probably mean that I will still have to go through with radiation therapy or they said that after they cut off the blood supply to the area that it may stop growing on its own. So I am guessing that with my luck I will have to go through with radiation treatments. I will also have years of MRI's to ensure that it does not grow back.
OK as you can see I have started to obsess again. I cannot beleve that in a little over a week I will be under the knife.
