Not about to attempt to dig back through all the threads and find the pre-existing thread on Deb's recovery....but I wanted to give you all an update.
Deb is probably at about 85 to 90% recovered. She still has facial paralysis, her right eye still isn't working right. She still has some pretty severe fatigue and can get seriously tired doing even minor things. How much if any of these areas will clear up is up in the air....and only time will tell...and in this case time means years.
On a brighter note...Deb has not used her wheel chair for several months, has not used her walker for about 3 to 4 months. She is walking almost normally...still has some balance issues due to her right eye and the lack of depth perception and peripheral vision. But she is climbing stairs like champ. The chair lift system has been removed and my father-in-law has it for sale, and I hope that he can recoup a good chunk of the $1800 he spent for the system...it is low mileage and used for only 7 months.
She has been spending every Wednesday out with her mom and sisters....hitting the Salvation Army Thrift store, ice cream stand, playing cards, getting her nails done...basically having a grand time. She usually comes home with some "treasures" and in a pretty worn out state. But, she goes like it is nothing.
A couple times, she has gone to the lake with her younger sister and spent some time on the beach and in the water.
All in all, she is good. 85 to 90% recovery following the removal of a brain tumor the size of a lemon....that is more than good....and I am glad to have her even at 85%...sure beats not having her at all.
Thank you all, my Brothers, for the prayers that you sent up for my sweetie, and for the moral support that you all have given.
