I have to admit that I'm feeling a little angry about all of this. Couldn't we have just a little break where he felt good, stayed off steroids, and life wasn't so crazy?! The last thing that Scott, the kids, and I want to do during the last week of school is have Scott spend a few days in the hospital with his 7th surgery related to brain cancer. This is our reality. We don't know what tomorrow will bring - good or bad. We live in the moment, try to enjoy every day, and handle the roller coaster of emotions the best we can.
Say lots of prayers for a successful surgery on Monday that will relieve the pressure and pain in Scott's head so that he can feel comfortable without steroids. Pray that his LFTs come down and stay down without the need for other meds. Pray for continued healing from the brain damage caused by tumor and treatment.
The graphic below was a result of a survey of brain tumor caregivers who were asked their top 3 priorities for their loved one, other than living longer, and it is pretty much how I feel too:
Surgery starts mid-day on Monday but I will post sometime during the day but it won't be early in the morning. Thanks in advance for the prayers!
