Thank you all for the incredible outpouring of love. I am forever in awe of the kind words, encouragement and love that you all send to us. I cannot thank you all enough.
I have been admitted to the hospital and will stay until early-mid next week. I will have surgery Saturday morning. Basically, there is an abnormal lesion on the right cerebellum of my brain. I am having additional scans done tonight to determine the intricacies of it and hopefully rule out any additional lesions. It’ll make a 3D map of my brain too, so that’s pretty neat! The size of the entire lesion is about the size of a kiwi and they suspect that it is a small tumor surrounded by fluid, which is common for metastatic breast cancer.
I obviously have options but the recommendation is to remove it as soon as possible. This will alleviate the fluid build up, which is causing headaches and remove the (assumed) cancer. It will give me a better prognosis long term. Radiation and chemo will still be needed but we will deal with that later. For now, we focus on the task ahead.
This part of my brain is responsible for my sense of balance and fine motor skills. I will likely need mild assistance (occupational therapy) initially, such as ensuring I walk stably and can brush my teeth instead of my cheek. 😉 It will be 75% improved in 4 weeks and 100% in 6 weeks time.
That’s all for now. Rest up, my loves. Have a wonderful night! 💚💚💚
