Final Brain-Surgery Update

I’m bleary-eyed and exhausted from several weeks of worry and lack of sleep, but I’m back.

The news is excellent. My brother-in-law came through the second surgery beautifully. He’s at home today, and while he’ll be on disability for a couple of months while he recuperates, he is himself, and all the horrible things that could have happened didn’t.

I’m still going to be around sparsely for the rest of the month. We had a huge amount of hard physical work staring us in the face before all this started, and we put it aside for the last couple weeks (for obvious reasons)…but our completion deadline is the end of this month. All the work’s still there, and now we have half the time to do it.

So I’m going to spend today mostly sleeping. And I’m going to work like a dog the rest of the month.

After that, I hope to be back here regularly again. I’ve missed being here.

    Look after yourself, Holly. It’s very upsetting to hear that you have been unwell yourself. And I’m not surprised. When I see all the things you do it boggles my mind. There would need to be 100 of me to do all that you do! Please take a rest. We would hate to see you land up in hospital. But I’m glad to hear your BIL came through his surgery well.

    Holly, didn’t know. SO glad to hear all is going to be well. We will keep you and your family in our prayers for a speedy recovery and a successful finish to the hard labor. Again, so glad to hear the good news.

    That is such good news! Hope you give yourself enough time to re-adjust. One day here or there isn’t going to make much difference to work-load, but could strengthen you and yours substantially.

    I have recently had a brain tumor removed (surgery went very well) and am taking follow-up treatments.

    My best wishes are with your brother-in-law.
