I was barely back home after a couple months in the hospital after my AVM bleed and operation some years ago. An old friend from work, who had been one of those
that I had worked for, and had been one of my favorites there, called and asked if he could come to my home for a visit. Wife took the message, and asked me if I wanted visitors and I said “For him fine, tell him to come over.”
When he came over the next day, I came out into the living room to see him, and he looked shocked that
I was in such poor condition. Those of you who have
suffered through an AVM cerebral bleed, and craniotomy
will appreciate how poorly I felt, and I suspect that I
looked even worse than I felt!
But I still appreciated an old friend visiting me, even
if I looked half dead! I will never forget it, and I appreciated it! In a few months I got to return part time
to work, and then later back to full time. In time I was back close to how I used to be, even though there had been times that I thought I would never make it.
Remember those of you walking in similar shoes, that it is possible to come back fully. I did, and I hope that you will also!
