The people on my Facebook page already know this, but it's taken me almost two weeks to be able to come and post this here. Probably because I am so lost since this happened, I'm not sure how to put it into words anymore, or because I'm really not sure what comes next.
On the 2nd of March, I was diagnosed with a meningioma. It's a type of brain tumor that is in the my right occipital lobe. It's been affecting my vision, and we think it may have a lot to do with my temper issues lately as well.
I'm still waiting for news from the surgeon, but from what I understand, I will be having a craniotomy sometime in the very near future. I'm working on making a list of places for DH to update while I'm in hospital, and this board will be on that list.
Right now, I'm not really sure what I'm feeling or how we're going to get through this. What I do know is that I am terrified of what will happen to my nursing relationship with Patrick, our bond (he's a little attached to me...) and how my family is going to get through yet another massive crisis.
I'll do my best to answer questions people might have, but I'm still kind of learning all of this myself.
