My life seems to be getting worse. Today I went to see the neuro oncologist at Mayo Clinic. It is odd that he has the same initials and last name as me “DJ”. I found out that my tumor needs surgery urgently. No longer a meningioma but a likely low-grade glioma. Top of my left cerebral cortex about the size of my thumb. Of course this puts dampers on my training plans. I am scared I am going to lose my job because I have to be away from work so long. So much to get done before surgery. Pre auths, clean house, get time off from work, get in shape. I hope I can still walk and talk after this surgery. Do not want to lose my hair. Since I work in the medical field, I know the good and bad things that can happen during surgery. I am more scared about life after surgery than the surgery itself. Got my script for anti-seizure med Dilantin so hopefully no more body and brain freezes. -dmj
