3rd Crain-iversary

August 7th is the third anniversary of  my brain surgery. On August 7th 2015 I had a crainiotomy to remove a meningioma tumour. I blogged all about my brainy experiences pre and post surgery, and if you are interested in the gory details they are all there in the BRAIN TUMOUR tab at the top of every page.

The meningioma that I called Timmy lived in the cerebellum region of my brain which is the part of the brain that coordinates muscular activity. Pre-surgery I had some issues with dizziness, headaches and was advised to limit my activities to those that would not increase my blood pressure.

To celebrate three years of being brain tumour free we went rock climbing, simply because we can. We all gave it a try, and some of us were more successful than others. I don’t think that I will be quitting my day job to become a rock climber, but it was fun to try.
