Here we go again and now again...

Well we saw our Dr. Smith today and he looked at the little hole in my head. That little hole is costing me one more surgery... slim chance of tomorrow with a most likely of Friday...

To put you all at ease...mostly my mother...if all goes well, this will be an outpatient surgery (no ICU or hospital food!) and he will not go into the brain. If he gets in there and it looks like my precious bone is causing troubles we will have to go the titanium plate/helmet route. He said this is the last chance he is giving this hole and next time, we go take the bone. All the medicines I am taking is making it really hard for my body to heal correctly and that is the major problem. We are stopping Avastin infusions until I am completely healed. I was a good girl and did not pick at the scabs at my head or wash my hair so we know that this is not all my fault...we blamed it on me last time. :) This is my wonderful infections fault and we are trying so hard to kill it.

Also, I have had my first experience with acid reflex and I am not enjoying it at all. The Vanc completely killed my digestive system (as if it wasn't suffering before!) Now I am taking 50 billion + of these probiotics to try to help...we will see how this new problem goes.

Anyway, that's the update as of yesterday. We should be fine...

Please third time's a charm!!!

Four just isn't a lucky number.

PS.

Surgery Friday would be ten times better than tomorrow...then I get to see the Jimmer play on Thursday night! Please brain hold on til then!

even if you cant see him, you'll have to make a special phone call and tell him he better win so you can see him later!! For reals, you should.

I love you sister.

3rd time is the charm. You got this.

Good Luck! I hope you get to watch Jimmer on Thurs and hold off until Friday. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I think it would be okay if you didn't get to experience so much of these fun adventures that so often go with lumps in the head-requesting some time off from them please!!

Papaya juice is really good for heartburn. I'm assuming it would be really good for acid reflux as well. When I'm pregnant I drink a small glass of it every day. I read online it's also good for fighting cancer as well. Try it and see if it helps your tummy.
