John, thank you for your inquiry. Very kind of you to ask all of us. A couple of days ago I was able to celebrate my one year anniversary since my craniotomy for my arteriovenous malformation. I believe I'm doing very well and able to do much of what I want. I see slow, steady, but continued progress in most areas. More than occasionally I wonder how others who have posted here are doing. I found the support from members and moderators very very helpful and important at various times. Again thanks to all. Would like to hear how others are doing.
