Welcome to my Summer Vacation. It is not really how I had planned to spend it--but "it is what it is". We've created it to keep friends and family updated. Originally, I had planned to have a hip replacement on April 25. Yesterday, my doctor advised me to cancel the hip adventure and schedule Brain surgery. A year ago, I discovered I had a brain tumor. The results of a recent MRI showed there has been a change, thus brain surgery has been scheduled.Surgery is scheduled for May 5.
