Hello my dear friends. My surgery last Wednesday was a success. I am home from the hospital with lots of meds and doing well. No more spasms so far!
I don’t think I will be able to look at emails for a few more days as my vision is quite blurred but I will get there eventually. I have a lovely fat four inch scar down the left side of my head behind my ear. It will be perfect for Halloween. I can feel my hair growing back already though, so that is good.
I just wanted to express all my appreciation for the wonderful doctors and nurses at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. I couldn’t have been taken care of at a better place. The amazing neurosurgeon Dr. Phillip Stieg did microsurgery inside my skull to lift the blood vessel that had been pressing on my facial nerve for so many years.
So for now it is rest, rest, and more rest. I am able to walk around, shower, dress and such but not allowed much else. I expect to start getting bored by next week, lol.
Thank you all again for the outpourings of prayers and healing thoughts. It’s been a long strange trip this past year for me and your love and kindness has meant more to me than I could ever express in words. I’m looking forward to getting back to normal.
with all my love
