Happy Sunday

I just completed another stroll around the hall! I have become quite the walker. It is so much fun to get up walk! So you have seen my pictures...I have so much hair! The doctor was extra nice to me. Usually they cut all the hair on the inside of that horseshoe but my Dr. Berger left me tons of hair! I almost feel bad because I walk around and see other people with bandages and no hair and I got this full head of hair. It is just a little thinner now

My whole body works! I can walk, talk, chew, laugh, smile, boss people around, type, blink, hum, wiggle all ten toes, push buttons and brush my teeth! It is so nice to know that I am going to be completely normal!

Man I am so happy right now. I never ever want to go back to the last few days. Hospitals are no fun! It is amazing how slow the clock can tick sometimes. Good thing the fridge always has chocolate ice cream! We just disregaurd the 'authorized personal only" and "staff only" signs. We just enter the code to the kitchen and act like we know what we are doing. Josh and Dad take turns on these secret missions to the pantry! :)

Well can you believe I made it? It is still weird to look at pictures and hear what they did. They pulled all my skin off my head down to my jaw and then sawed a whole bunch of my skull out. I guess I have titanium in my skull now. The doctor said that my skull is still really strong still...That means I can still run into things! :) ha.

Well all is well here in San Fransisco. I am leaving my tumor is San Fransisco! Thanks for all your prayers and comments and thoughts. It is the first thing we do when I wake up. We read all our new comments!

I got my fuzzy, pink socks, warm green blankie, lamby, Josh, Mom, Dad, family, no more tumor and ALL YOU!!!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world!

Happy Sunday everyone we will be home Wednesday! I love you all!

Dear TTL, You are amazing! Reading your post and progress makes it really hard to 1) complain, 2) be lazy 3) not smile. Thank you for including us in your journey. I am totally impressed at your hairdo - I thought it was going to be much more aggressive. Clearly you've gotten on your surgeon's sweet side; they usually enjoy much more aggressive clippers. You're making recovery look edgy and cool. Thank you for sharing your courage, strength and faith. Love, The Maloneys

Tara, you really seem to be doing so well! We are so happy! I'm so surprised at how much hair you have! Making it look really full will be a cinch- I've got tricks! You are such a trooper and so positive. I'm amazed at your courage.

Tara, I am so glad to hear you are recovering so well. I'm sure you are relieved to be on the other side of it all. We are still keeping you guys in our prayers. Glad you get to come home Wednesday!

Better to leave your tumor in San Francisco than your heart....I know you wont get that reference. (Ask your parents, thought they may not be old enough either. Ha ha) Enjoy your "leisure time". LOL


I am so glad you come home Wednesday! Elizabeth and I should come over and play around with your hair and come up with new styles! Can't wait to see you! Glad to hear surgery went so well- you are a trooper! Lets hang out so I can laugh so hard again!

Tumor-less: That cracked me up! Glad you're feeling all frisky and you're headed home! Saw Invictus last night & just wanted to share with you the poem from the movie, it's always been a powerful poem (long before the movie was made!):


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

Wow! So excited for you! BTW, the Hamblins...did he ever serve in the Army? I think my parents might know them. Could be different Hamblins though.
