I survived brain surgery! So amazing. Surgery only took 2 hours on Monday, and I got to come home to Tuli, Harper, Sibby, Chuck and my Mom on Wednesday. My Mom had made brownies, cleaned our house, did our laundry and was so helpful. I can't say enough about how much help Tuli has provided for my recovery. I haven't had to get up with Harper once during the night, and I've only had to change one dirty diaper. He's such an amazing daddy and partner to me.

I am so grateful for my family. Grateful for everyone who came down to visit, watch TV with me, sent me flowers, made me laugh, endured my steroid-fueled temper tantrums and loved me even with 9 staples in my head.

SO grateful.

I am grateful for Dr. Kokkino. What an amazingly talented man he is!

I am grateful I get to wash my hair tomorrow! Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am grateful for Harper. He can always cheer me up.

I've had some amazing friends do some great things for me too. Between driving me around, knitting me hats and telling me I'm beautiful, I am one lucky lady.

Not feeling a whole lot like writing, just wanted to let everyone know that I didn't let a little brain tumor take me down or damper my spirits too much :)
