HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. HARVEY CUSHING!!!!!
With today being Cushing's Awareness Day, I thought I would updated my blog.
412 days ago today I had an operation on my pituitary gland to remove the tumor that had changed my life forever. Although it has been one "crazy" journey, it is one that I don't think I would ever change. 35 days ago, I had a follow up appointment with the Neurosurgeon who performed the surgery. TUMOR IS GONE!! Having him tell me that himself was one of the most amazing feelings, and I am so grateful to have worked with such a wonderful team of medical staff.
The past couple of years have been such a roller coaster, between surgery and my emotional ups and downs, lets just say its been exhausting. It's time that I take control of who I am. I haven't only exhausted myself but I have exhausted those who mean the most to me.
Cushing's Disease is exactly how they say, "UGLY"! I hope that more people become aware of this extremely rare disease. I caught mine quick and I hope the next person can catch it even faster.
Happy Cushing's Awareness Day!
