Only days away from surgery, and I’m choosing to remain in a calm, positive place. I’m spending this time with family and remaining as upbeat as possible. However, I can’t help but focus on a few things: wondering why, the importance of self-advocacy and reaching out for help.
As I’m not someone who would be considered high risk for aneurysms, the word why (and how) keeps creeping into my thoughts. Hopefully, someone will be able to provide a definitive answer….but that answer may not be so easy to come by.
I’d like each of you know how important it is to trust your own inner voice and speak up for what you believe. Oh, and that “it’s all in your head” justification that some doctors love to share? If you know that is just not true….take action. It could save your life.
Finally, I’d like to reach out to all of you and ask for your help, your ideas and your support. I go into more detail in the video, but wanted to make sure you all know how much I appreciate you and your support during this time.
I’ll likely report in again from the hospital, so…..until then!
