“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” ― Roy T. Bennett
To begin with, this is not about getting better.
This is about how much longer I have to live and the quality of life during that time.
Next week I will have 5 daily radiation treatments, called gamma knives, and if they are successful, it should add 4 years to my life span.
Our plan is to fly home to Tanzania on Monday, October 22nd, getting back to Bunda on October 25th.
The people here have been absolutely wonderful. The nurses, therapists, even the men who moved me from one area to another have all been incredibly kind and gracious.
The experience while not what I would recommend to anyone has been a good one.
I am learning to walk again, to dress myself, to stand unaided, and to move from bed to wheelchair.
And I have been successful at all of these.
It has been a very positive thing for me to be able to see increasing success day by day.
I have been strengthened by all of your prayers and words of encouragement.
I regret that I have not been able to post blogs more often, but the brain surgery left my fingers uncooperative.
I hope this brief message will fill in some blanks. I hope to blog on a daily basis again once I am back in Bunda.
God bless each of you.
