Post Brain Surgery, What to Expect

Even now, over a month after my surgery on Oct 10 2018, I still struggle to focus – which is why I haven’t posted anything.  But, I think I’ve been on radio silence for too long. First, if you haven’t guessed, I survived the surgery. Second, none of my brain goo came out, and the…
