My cerebral AVM, and bleed came in 2002,
and I had at the time no idea at all that a ticking
time bomb, so to speak, was in my head.
They removed my AVM a week or two after my bleed,
but at first they still thought that I would die from it,
or be brain dead. But for awhile I was beyond caring.
Wife was told that I might never recover fully, and
so what did she want the Drs. to do for me?
Wife later told me that she had already had our children,
and at her age she was afraid she would not be able
to ever find someone else to remarry. She did not want to be alone, so she asked them to do all they could to bring me back. It required 5 years to bring me back close to what I had been, but in time it came.
I am thankful to still be around. I gave away one
daughter at her wedding, and still being around in
2018 can be sweet.
I hope for all AVM survivors the same or better!
