    So Sparky, I don't know you, but glad to hear you are progressing.

    Facing and getting through brain surgery must be quite an experience. Any time they mess with your brain - all kinds of risks. Must have inspired some thoughts.

    I wonder what insights you have had as a result of this experience that you could share with the rest of us. Most of us are caught up in our little trials and tribulations that must seem trivial when you have faced death. Any wisdom to share?

    Missy, "Yay!" works just fine in these cases. Every morning is a "Yay!' day.

    Shadow, isn't that the only way?

    Asp, yeah, I've had all three of them out at least twice since February. Life is good and the weather is too!

    Sorg, the only insight I can offer is live your life your way. It's too short to live it by anyone elses rules and regs, and it can be over at any time. Something of which I was reminded a couple of weeks ago when the lady ran the red light during our Wednesday blizzard and T-boned my truck.

    Yep, push thyself and know thy limits. I pushed myself a little further than I should have last week, what with the Achilles tendon recovery efforts being what they are, but it still felt good getting something accomplished. Not completed, mind you...but accomplished. Small victories are good too.

    Only good reads here !
    Sparky, glad you are hanging in there man, my wife's aneurysm is now history, but two "in the brain" op's in less then 1 year.

    Life's definitely beautiful when you are healthy, and I wish you only the best !

    Thank you Ninja, and good to hear your lady is doing well also. I still have a lot of numbness in the right front quadrant of my head, so you guys can only call me a "quarter numbskull" now.

    Tell me about the eye - that sounds so interesting that it is expected to "come back".

    Well, it's really the eyelid. There's not much muscle control over the eyelid muscles right now. I can hold the eyelid open and see just fine, but that takes one hand away from whatever I'm doing. As the numbness fades I can feel slight motion in the eyelid, and if I hold it open and then let go I am able to keep the lid about 1/4 open but still not enough for the eye to be usable right now. Could be months, could be years depending on how much actual damage the neurosurgeon did to the nerves while scraping the tumor off of them.

    Thanks for the updates, R! Glad to hear your recovery is going as well as can be expected. Keep on keepin' on!

    And a hug, just for the heck of it.

    Cool!! So glad the eye is fine. Sounds like progress with the lid, too.
