Perfect laugh over having brain surgery! Thank you to the artist Constantine. We are both on the same Facebook group for people with the Oligodendroglioma tumor type, and he created and shared with us!

UPDATE 28 AUG 2017: Constantine has also decided to have tees made with another design of his.  Any money he makes will be donated.  Most likely he has chosen the American Brain Tumor Association.  Will confirm!  Here’s the first release and ready to ORDER:

 

I want to thank everyone who has sent their support and great feelings to me! So many things have meant so very much to me: a comment, a card, a plant, a posting, a bouquet, a coffee mug, edible arrangement, a puzzle, magazines, a coloring book, and so many awesome items!

Decided to (finally) let everyone know about my tumor and the surgery on Facebook.  And 240 likes and 258 comments!  Thank you everyone for responding and supporting me!!

Here’s my post:

“Update – I had a big brain tumor!! It was a glioma – called an oligodendroglioma. I didn’t think I had something like this – thought it was me just being nervous. Well, went to the emergency room after having an attack at work, and they let me know I had a brain tumor. I then had an operation on my brain three weeks ago. A wonderful doctor gave me a big operation and took out a huge percentage of the tumor. I am healing now and starting to feel better. We will see the doctor soon and decide what the next decision will be. My husband, Mike, is a wonderful partner in soooo many ways and helping me sooo much!! My mom, Betty, is staying to assist here with us. I am sorry I didn’t tell everyone right away, but I appreciate all your thoughts! I am still sleepy sometimes and in a healing state, so I will get back with you!! I’ve received great cards, wonderful plants and flowers, and fun things. Thank you for your support!!
