1 month post-op

One month ago today we were sleeping in Collin’s hospital room after his brain surgery.

This is Collin earlier today…just one month later.

What a difference a month makes.

In this past month Collin has done very well. He is back to his ornery self and has remained seizure free. Praise God. His incision is healing well. The sutures are all gone now and his hair is starting to grow back in.
He still wears a hat most of the time when we leave bc he thinks people will laugh @ him. ??? I have no idea where he got that idea from.

On Monday we have a check up with the CNP in neurology. This check up is mainly for us to get his seizure medicine refilled.
In October we will go for his MRI to see if the surgery was truly a success.

We have been staying busy around here. 
Our weather has been un-seasonably cool. I am enjoying it. I am not a fan of the humidity.

We are trying to make plans for a quick NYC trip for my birthday in Oct.  I have always wanted to go to NYC. I am so excited.
And if I can find a nice cabin the three of us will be going to the Smokey Mts. in TN for Thanksgiving.
Lots of things coming up. I can not wait.

I am so glad that he is doing so well! He looks great! I have always wanted to go to NYC, but have never been! I hope you have to go and have so much fun! And a cabin in the woods for relaxing!
