Awww thanks guys, very sweet words (and lol thanks jyearta for remembering the birthday!)
I must make a bit of a correction here tho (and no fault of Neil's I talk about the surgery so much it's a regular topic between us). It's not surgery yet. Monday is my day of testing with the neuropsychologist and then I'm admitted to the seizure unit. My epileptologist (and epilepsy nurse and regular GP) feel surgery will be necessary as there is a damaged location to remove (MTS Mesial Temporal Sclerosis), but the unit we have to do first to get an exact location. And make sure it isn't too deep as well. She said the waiting list for surgery after this is a few months long, so it wouldn't be until the new year.
Two things however - it's all moot unless I can actually have a seizure on video (maybe I should just get really drunk celebrating my birthday ey that should solve it), and at the end of it all I still have to make the final decision. I don't want my head cut open (esp. when there's a chance it won't work), but I don't want to look back in 10 years and regret that I didn't do it while still young. Sigh. Decisions decisions.
I was going to start a thread to say goodbye to everyone today (leave tomorrow), and as I said before I'll keep ya posted when I'm in there. LOL they may be able to strap me to a bed and only let me up to pee but they ain't keepin' me off CWE!!
Love you guys!!
