Had unplanned brain surgery 6 days ago. AMA.
I was sent to the ER 9 days ago (Friday) due to a series of frantic doctor's visits that discovered I had swelling around both my optical nerves, which some very urgent tests eventually pinned down to being caused by some general brain swelling thanks to a ping pong ball-sized tumor in my right temporal lobe. After a weekend of tests and insanity, the tumor was removed on Monday, May 4th.
My brain is still definitely processing the last several days' worth of insanity, but I'm handling direct questions well. AMA!
EDIT: Sleep achieved. I'll be on and off keeping you guys entertained as my brain allows until you get bored with me. Doing decently so far today in general.
Proof: makeshift staple zipper in my head! Warning: Kind of creepy.
