For all of those of you who are wondering what is going on in my life. I created this blog so everyone could stay up to date on my condition. On Thursday the 18th I was in the middle of a run when I started to feel strange. My hands seized into my chest and wouldn't move. I started to lose my balance and sat down on the curb. I suppose I passed out b/c I came to and found about 5 people standing above me telling me an ambulance was on the way. They took me to Hopkin's Bayview campus. They described my episode as a seizure. After doing a number of tests they determined that I had a lesion in the right frontal lobe of my brain. Rather than do a biopsy the neurosurgeon determined that the location of my lesion made it ideal to just go in and take out without haste. My surgeon's name is Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa. I am absolutely privileged to have him.
My surgery is scheduled for friday the 26th. I will undergo a craniotomy.
I am on some meds which are kind of giving me a hard time right now. I spend most of my days napping off migraines.
I want to talk to everyone so please don't be afraid to call but please understand that I have a lot to straighten out in the next few days and so I may not be able to get back to everyone, please do not get upset about me not getting back to you right away. I value all of your thoughts and prayers. I'll try to update this blog regularly
