happy!!" The bone grafts are healing and your CSF and brain have both enlarged dramatically. He commiserated with you saying "Forrest, you've been through a lot". Your respectful reply, " Yes sir, I've been to hell and back." "Well then," Dr K. said, "you should have a break from surgeries, enjoy being 22 and just living!"
Sounds great, right?!? He did explain that there is still a gap on the right side of your skull that will require more surgery. Dr K. is planning to use bone grafts from two of your ribs to close the remaining gap, but wants to wait a full year to give you plenty of time to heal, make sure all of the infection is gone and that you have a chance to "enjoy living"!
So after a double serving of Dullce de Leche gelato off we went to the Renaissance Harbor Hotel. Perhaps we'll have celebratory steak at the Capital Grille tonight. Then early tomorrow morning back to Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology to have your Hickman central IV line removed! YAYY!!!
And tomorrow after yoga you have your first rehearsal for the Same Sky 2015 production! Could there be a better way to start the next chapter of your journey than spending time with the cast & crew of Same Sky?!?! Can hardly wait to see the public performance October 3 at the Hill School!!!
Breathe deep and enjoy!
Love and Peace,
