TUMOR

What feelings does that word immediately bring to you?  

FEAR?

SHOCK?

NUMBNESS?

DISBELIEF?



Now imagine being told that as you sit on the hospital bed in the ER after having a multitude of tests to discover why you feel so dizzy, disconnected and ill.

That was me 4 years ago.....sitting alone in a cold room with a dr. solemnly explaining that the CT scan showed an unknown mass on my brain.  This conversation started  a 2 year battle to get my health back.

Thankfully, I had surgery to remove a benign tumor.  No more tests, procedures, or meds necessary.  100% curable with surgery.

Recovery took awhile but.......

Just today my husband said that I am 'almost' normal (haha...whatever 'normal' is)

  2. The first thing that hits me is this question that I ask with panic: Is it benign or malignant?
