All I can say is that I have the best friends a person could ask for. I am astonished and so grateful for all of the love, prayers, energy and encouragement people are sending my way. I love to help others with their goals, dreams and struggles, but am fairly lousy at asking for help for me. I like to be Wonder Woman who can handle it all.
Above all I am remaining positive. As I have gone through this journey I see that brain tumors are way more common than they should be! I have so many friends that have had them or currently have them, it is mind blowing. (Poor choice of words? ) I feel lucky that my tumor is as easy as tumors can be, other friends are battling tumors much worse than mine. I am so grateful for all of you reaching out to share your stories and encouragement. I know I can do this. I have faith in my surgeon (and it’s of my doctor friends do too, so that is a relief)
We all have struggles in our lives right now. So many friends are battling cancer, and other major health battles. This pandemic. Financial burdens. Jobs. The state of the political world. It is all just too much to bear. My heart aches for everyone and all of it all the time. So the fact that you have even made it this far in my post, touches my heart. It is so comforting to feel that so many people out in the world care for me. It is giving me peace of mind and strength to get through this no matter what it throws at me.
