Great news! My cousin had a 6 hour surgery Monday morning to remove her brain tumor and it went well. Her surgeon was able to remove it easier than anticipated and he left 8 chemo wafers at the sight of the tumor. I got a phone call from my aunt at dinner time. She was at the hospital and had just talked to the doctor while my cousin went to recovery. What a relief!
I got a text message a few hours ago at 3:00 a.m. It was my goofy cousin wanting to know if I was still up. She was awake and in a room in ICU and wanted someone to talk to. She knew that I can never sleep and that's why she thought of me. I sent back a text and then she called me! They were worried that this surgery could affect her speech and thankfully she proved them wrong. We talked for an hour. She wouldn't shut up! Her head hurt but she was fairly comfortable. She finally left to get some rest. She is scheduled for an MRI in another hour. She is already talking about going to her local Cancer Walk this weekend.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words and good thoughts. Please keep them coming because she's not out of the woods yet. She's been fighting this battle for two years and the tumor has come back twice. That's enough. She's going to beat it this time.
I have a review and contest to post for a blog tour for the book Keeper of Light and Dust. It's almost ready but I have a few finishing touches and I was a bit distracted the last few days. Right now I'm going to try to grab a few hours sleep then I'll get that finished. I have some more contests coming up this week too so please come back!
