Back to Duke for Surgery

Posted on May 5, 2010 with 0 comments

Dear Friends: long story short.  I have another nasty cyst in my head that is casusing swelling and some issues.  After discussing options with duke on Tuesday, I’ve decided to proceed with surgery which will take place first thing this Fridy morning   this will be slice & dice #5 in 13 years – not a record, but enough.  This time is a little different in that it is not a “OH MY GOSH there’s a huge nasty thing in your head that must come ou immediately if you want to survive!  This time it was more of a long deliberate casual contemplation:  it’s my call.  Ignore it and hope things get better, or act and make sure hey do.  That said, brain surgery is no picnic and I Am not looking forward to it – but,  my world class surgeon has been in my scalp 3 times before so I figure he knows his way around  if all goes well, I’ll be sipping espresso  Sunday morning  les & I will be on our way to Duke tomorrow morning to prep for pre-op mri and admission tomorrow afternoon  thank you all for your messaes of prayer and support.  I’m sorry I can’t respond to each o you as comprehensively as I”d like


For now, love the time.  All the time.
