CcBear on the mend and feeling all the love!!

Thank you all so much for your positive words and encouragement from afar as me and my family tackle this diagnosis. I have been in the hospital now for 12 days, I'm in 5-days post operation. And the results are in! The tumor was benign! The intracranial pressure has resolved itself and the doc just came in to tell me the drain will be removed today! I still am VERY unsteady on my feet. The tumor was right in the balance zone of the brain so getting my feet back underneath may take a while. I have a 20-staple zipper right up the back of my dome... I'm ready to be home. Thank you soooo much for your encouragement and keep up the training. As soon as I am safely able to do so, I will out there too.

  • Hi ccbear....I've been away on holiday and have just got back to the website.

    I think you're amazing. That is an overused word, but i think you are.

    Your first blog was inspirational enough ( I want a canvas with all those lovely quotes ! ) but the next ones were mind blowing !

    You will get better. The path to recovery will take a long time, but you know you will get there.

    Bet you'll be jogging by christmas !

    Good luck and keep us posted x x :)
