D-day Surgery: 24 April 2008March 26, 2008
It is my father’s birthday today so when the hospital called with a date for my craniotomy I took that as a sign of good fortune. Surgery is planned for the 24th of April 2008! It is not really as fast as I had hoped for (I expected a date in the next two weeks) but this will have to do. There is no time for alternative plans anyway.
My wife watched an episode of a TV programme about brain surgery (recommended by the “Super Nurse”) and when my wife dared to watch it I did too. It was actually not as confronting as I thought and very informative. The case of the main character (a young woman) is so similar to mine. You can find it here, unfortunately it is completely in Dutch.
