Well after a 7 hour operation to close up some of the arteries in my brain through the use of glue I'm discharged from hospital and laughing once again.
The next step in my little adventure is to undergo something called radio-surgery via some wonderful technology called the "gamma knife". There's a high likelyhood this will decrease the AVM in my brain by up to 95% leaving a little work for the neurosurgeons sometime next year to take the final steps and cure me of my little set back. I'm highly confident and positive that I'll both survive the surgery and also retain full motor and brain function. So confident in fact that after a brief holiday in the philippines to clear out the cobwebs of the soul I'm undergoing my surgery and I expect to be blogging and writing again at full speed come early next year. My surgery in fact is planned for december the 31st. So if the forces that be grant me the luxury it will certainly be quite something of a "new year" for me come january the first.
Thanks for the well wishing and to those who wished me the worst I offer nothing but pity. I assure you that with what I've been through the absurdity and inanity of the needleslly negative and cyinical people has never been more apparent. Life has never seemed more precious or beautiful to me as when it's been so fragile. I say this in the hope you are able to grasp it and appreciate it before such extreme circumstances force you too. This christmas perhaps when you've the luxury to be ammongst those you love you'll think about this and let them know what they mean to you.
Peace and love
