Blog is filled with pre 3rd brain surgery, and walking thru the 3rd awake brain surgery. Also I've been fighting severe body pain for over 7 years. Amazing what your brain misses when gone. It has almost been 8 years since my 3rd awake brain surgery. I have taken myself off the extreme pain meds (4) and only on once and a great while. God is in control!! My Goal is to help others!
