We're talking almost 30 years since my brain surgery! OMG! Do you believe it?! I'm doing great other than being put back on seizure medication 6 years ago after having a grand mal seizure. I remember telling myself that I was going to beat this thing. I remember telling myself that I needed to be there for my 5 year old son. I believed. My son is now in his 30's. He graduated from college 10 years ago & is doing very well for himself. I will always be there for him, but I will also always be there for anyone else who has been told, "You have a brain tumor."
