    Brain surgery this week!

    Thursday is the day! I'm terrified but also anxious to get it over!
    I have planned and prepared everything that is in my power and now it's up to the surgeon.

    For those who don't know and want to know,
    I have a brain tumor, it causes me to have terrible pains, trigeminal neuralgia, tumor had radiation last year but the pain won't go away, can't live with that pain so I'm getting a micro vascular decompression.
    To put a pad between the nerve and the vein hitting it.
    It's a complicated surgery, they have to move the tumor aside to get to the nerve and even the surgeon who is the best in that field here, has only done this combination only once!
    There is a big risk of a complication but if it works the pain will be gone instantly!
    Even through all my meds the pain is getting worse and worse again.
    Had food poisoning and threw up probably two doses, that didn't help either so I'm in a lot of pain right now.
    I'm trying not to give in to the fear but i am scared!
    And also my throat aches and i hope that's from throwing up and not from getting a cold, cause then it won't happen!
    All in all a lot goes through my mind right now!
    It's a bit much right now!
