It’s been 3 years since the day that I was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumour. March 18th holds a special place in my life, it’s a day that my life changed. It’s a day to celebrate life and be thankful for my circumstances. I woke up this morning feeling a little underwhelmed, I had planned nothing to celebrate.
I dragged myself to the gym and while I was running I started thinking about the 18th of March. What was I going to do to mark the day? And then I realized that I was doing it. I was running, something that I couldn’t do 3 years ago without debilitating pain in my head.
I was very lucky that I had a quick uneventful recovery after surgery with minimal side effects. That is what I celebrated today with a trip to the gym and a game of laser tag to celebrate my oldest son’s birthday.
My last scan was in December and it came back clean so I have a lot to celebrate! My next MRI is in December of 2018 until then I will LIVE. I encourage you to live too, don’t wait until tomorrow to start that new thing or go on that adventure. Sign up, show up and do it.
