It's been two years
People who know me well enough will know that this blog doesn't focus on brain tumours as its main subject. If it seems to have done so recently, there's a celebratory aspect to it. One was my latest story, and the other is that today marks two years of my survival from the day the tumour was detected.
I wasn't expected to survive this long, but through amazing medical intervention (and some wonderful people whose views I respect but don't wholly share would say through other interventions), here I am. In some ways I would say I am better off than at this time last year, though not in others.
The main thing is that, thanks to Tracey, my family and friends, I can still communicate pretty fully with everyone, in spite of memory lapses, and my quality of life is still acceptable. For this I am very grateful to who/whatever is responsible.
I don't expect to write so much on this subject as the holiday season approaches, but this morning I did reformat the blog postings that told about how this all came to pass. They were some of the first I wrote, and the formatting was ... not good. Nothing of the substance of what I wrote there has been altered.
If you haven't seen it, then here it is. If you have seen it, it now reads better!
I'll write more on happier things for some time, unless there's a good reason not to. I've about twenty in mind!
