Taking a break for husband's brain surgery 2/12...

    gcvmom Here we go again!

    husband/difficult child 4 has a vascular malformation in his right temporal lobe that's been causing simple partials since '02 (we finally got this all figured out in December). After four different neurovascular consults in the past three weeks, he decided to "get it over with" and scheduled the surgery for this coming Tuesday.

    We're taking a belated anniversary weekend away starting tomorrow (it was last October!) and then I'll be relocating to the hospital with him for a few days. He'll be home recuperating for 6 to 8 weeks... I just hope I don't lose my mind in the interim!

    Please keep him (and our difficult children) in your prayers. I'll post an update when I have news.

    Will be keeping you & yours in my thoughts & prayers. I hope there is a quick recovery with no complications.

    Plan well so there is a bit of "me" time thrown in - even if it's a hot bubble bath with a good book & a glass of wine.

    Take care!

    easy child's first boyfriend had several severe mal-formations deep in his brain. Neuros did his procedures in steps. They didn't think his would work due to the severity, but last time I heard (just over a month ago) he is still doing well.
