I was having the "worst headache of my life" about 3 weeks ago and thought it was a migraine. Callie took me to Urgent Care where they prescribed me Valium, Vicodin, and a muscle relaxer. Thank God I got a second opinion! Haha.
Turns out, I have a Grade 4 Tumor in my brain. It's called a Glioblastoma Multiforme. You can read more about it here:
Things happened really fast and I ended up having surgery where they removed most of the tumor. I had my surgery on September 2nd. I start treatment next week (a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy). We have to be very aggressive with it. Good news is that at this point they don't have to go in for a second surgery. The treatment should be 6 weeks on, 4 weeks off.
Thank you for all the prayers! I appreciate them more than you know!
