Same thing happened to my mom after brain surgery. Thank goodness they realized you had a clot because now they can treat it. I hope and pray you are good to go soon! So glad you continue to check in.

I am so scared of not waking up and never seeing my family again - but I know that the sooner I have the surgery the better. Earlier this month we took a two week land/sea vacation at disney and I made sure to take pictures of everything! In fact, in order to keep my mind off of the surgery I've begun planning a vacation next year for my entire family (parents, siblings and their families). Believe it or not - it has really helped. Now two days before the surgery I just can't my mind straight... I don't know what I'm looking for from this...maybe just some good vibes...
Sending prayers, good vibes and lots of pixie dust your way.

I am in my 30's and I was diagnosed with a large blot clot about five months ago. Then was told that I needed abdominal surgery right away last month to remove 2 large tumors. I have a phobia of needles so the past several months have been stressful to say the least. I was lucky to have a brave husband that was willing to learn and administer the shots in my stomach.

All that to say I understand a little bit of what you are a dealing wiith. I just want to say if I can handle it, you can too. I'm a wuss when it comes to pain and worrying.

Thanks again everyone. Reading everyone's experiences and kind words really has helped me stay positive. Hopefully ill be moving out of ICU today and with any luck home (for good!) within a week. The disboards really have been helping with my sanity and a great distraction :-)
