I was in the hospital for many weeks and the Dr’s thought they found a brain tumor and from there I had surgery and this is what I posted on the WoodNet
This is what I wrote at Woodnet
I am still here.
I had my surgery at 6am and I am feeling pretty tird.
They said it was not a tumor but a piece of Bone from the bombing I was in severl years ago.
When the Dr sowen my head up after the bombing he thought the scalp was split and I had a severe concuction (sp) and did not check further.
During the bombing I was close enough to the explosion that when on of my guys in front of me died some of his bone fragments were inbeded into my skin.
For almost 9 months I was haveing small bone slivers like wood slivers comeing out of my face, arms, belly, and legs. Kind of like achne (sp) and the slivers would be pulled out. The bugger
I do not remember what the Dr said they did nto see it on the Xray or I forget the other machin name, but that it looked like a tumor.
That is one of the reasons for the bad headaches, shaking, and eye problems. They did not tell me
I am feeling a little sich to my stomch and shacky right now, however, I am doing ok.
Sorry for spelling
I know I should have included all my friends here also, but I forgot to tell everyone until after and I am still working on that also.
PS – To all my friends and well wishers thank you for all your thoughts and prayers always. I know I owe some of you packages and I will be getting on it as soon as possible.
