josh:  I'm back home!!

Here are a few picks -- first is the tape coming off the incision,

The second is the staples (once again, I can't bring myself to count them - some aren't completely visible in the picture) - you can still see some of the scar from the surgery 6 months ago, on the top (alongside the right of the new scar) and left side of my head, but it blows my mind (careful with word choice, josh...) how much it has healed,

And the third my beautiful daughters with me not looking as copacetic as I thought I was:










I'm still mostly at the honeymoon period with the steroids - not completely flipped out yet, but that will happen soon enough.

Love you all - great to be back!!! I'll post more news when I get it - later this week probably. I'm going to take a nap.

josh:  Happy Sunday! Still in ICU but only because no normal room is open. Likely I will get discharged today straight from ICU.

I feel really good, although I'm starting to feel the steroids I have to take because of the surgery. Not my favorite, mainly because they make it impossible to shut up, and when combined with the seizure medication I always have to take, which makes me irritable, not a good combination :). - wish me luck, and hopefully I can improve from last time.

The way I have this blog set up, it's tough to post pictures directly from my phone, which is all I have here. When I get home (today!), I'll get some up.

Once again, much love!

josh:  Good morning! I'm feeling pretty good today and probably will get to go home tomorrow! I'm still in ICU but that's because there are no regular open rooms.


Still waiting on the pathology - probably will see that mid next week.


Once again - thanks!!! for your support. Love you all!

josh:  In ICU but will probably get out today! Found out we can start calling that thing a tumor (boo!). Won't officially know what kind until maybe Tuesday. Doctor didn't seem exciting about the likelihood that it's another kind than GBM (*any* other kind would be better I guess), but I'm keeping my hopes up.

josh:  Hey the surgery went well. I gotta take a nap. But I wanted you to know. I have not yet found out what they cut out, but I will post when I do
