Update on Gamma Knife

         Just wanted to let everyone know that my Gamma Knife Procedure went as planned.  We arrived at the center and just as I was gonna get hit me.....the overwhelmingness of what I was about to do......and I sat there a I prayed and I cried.....and I remembered a time when my father sat alone and asked God if this really was his will and if it was then "thy will be done".  So I was reminded by Gods grace that he knows and understands my fears and with that I went in to do what I knew had to be done.  I was blessed enough to have some awesome doctors and nurse that held my hand through the whole thing.  Even the physicist that was there to just design a plan for the radiation held my hand.  I know that its not in the handbook that every doctor has to be nice or I feel truly blessed that I have come across such wonderful and caring ones.  When you look at the pictures imagine me trying to take a drink with that was quite entertaining if I do say so bad I didnt' get anyone to video that as it took me a few times to figure out how to get te straw under the metal contraption LOL.  And if you know me you know that I had to get some funny pics while this contraption was screwed to my head so here you go....

Decked Out in my hat...headed to get my MRI before the

So they wrapped my head to prevent bleeding
post-op and well it left just the top of my head I got me some Easter Eggs and
made me a nest......on top of my head HA HA

I'm so glad you posted today as I've been thinking about you, wondering how it all went, and praying for you. I'm just amazed and speechless about the whole thing. And I understand your fears and apprehension at walking in and saying, "Let's do it." But as the title to your blog says so beautifully, "With God All Things Are Possible!" I loved the pictures!!!! I smiled really big, but I'm also praying for you. You are such a brave example and thankful for all the candid sharing you have done here!!!! Thank you!
