Previously I’ve had my brain surgery on Oct 9 to refresh your minds for those who may not know or remember. I had (temporal lobectomy) 16 cubic cm of my brain removed to rid my seizures (epilepsy). And yesterday I had to go for my 2 hour ride back to London, Ontario for an update. My neurologist had nothing but good news about it saying how well it went and everything is going along perfect. So now he is slowly reducing my medication (I take 18 pills a day by the way). And after visiting him I went to visit my neuro-psycologist and to my “after surgery” psycological test and got the exact same score as “before surgery” which shocked her saying how rare it is not be struggling with anything. So I’m feeling confident in the results of my surgery and on the 7th of January I go back to see my surgeon which I give him a thank you plaque that I made for him which I’ll submit hopefully tomorrow for you to see.
