I am now getting around to posting on the few forums I am apart of and I deffently do not want to miss my LJ buddies and friends. I was in and out of the hospital and then back in for 9 days. All the Drs thought I had a brain tumor and could no see what else it could be. So for the last 9 months I have been a struggle. So here is a copy of what I posted on the WoodNet:
I am still here.
I had my surgery at 6am July 13, 2012 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 man stil wants to se me in my dreams but I put him down most of time.
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 nor did I want to know what part of the bone was it, but it was about 2” long.
I am feeling a little sich to my stomch and shacky right now, however, I am doing ok.
Thank you everyone for teh prayers and thinking abt me.
Sorry for spelling
