I had a week worth of headaches that no over the counter pain meds were working on. Then one day at work I had intense anxiety, delayed vision, and the weirdest deja vu feeling. That night I went to the ER. There was a weird black blob on my CT scan. But the doctor said he thought it was nothing - likely brain tissue I'd never used from having been so sick as a baby. But after an MRI on May 17th, I found out the black blob on my CT scan was a brain tumor. On June 26th, I had surgery to remove my tumor. The surgery was successful and my surgeon said if any was left, he couldn’t see it in the MRI. Recovery went well and I was feeling great to have it behind me. Then on my husband’s birthday, July 12th, we found out it was cancer. My tumor was Anaplastic Astrocytoma Stage 3 brain cancer. I completed six weeks of chemo and radiation to get rid of any cancer cells that could have been left. Two clean MRI scans later, I am officially N.E.D. (No evidence of disease). I am currently feeling very blessed and lucky, which is a weird feeling after just encountering the worst thing in my life. I'm still on an oral chemo pill that I take for 5 days every four weeks until September 3rd, (we've got a countdown going}. I'm learning more about my new brain every day. Some things that used to be a piece of cake now take a lot more time. I'm learning to be more patient with myself and thankful for all my body has done, even though most days it is exhausted. In a weird way I'm oddly grateful for cancer.. for what it's taught me, who it's made me become, and the amazing survivors I've met along the way.
