It’s true, I’m home from the hospital.
I’m very thankful to the doctors, nurses and staff at Scripps Memorial hospital, but I was ready to come home. Without making it a long story: they fixed me, got rid of some scar tissue and made it easier to stop pressure from building in my brain in the future. Best of all is the progress I’ve made since returning home.
I was released on September 23rd, in a wheelchair and unable to walk. Today, 10 days later, I can fairly easily climb the stairs at home. (Shout out to my physical therapist, Navid). Next, the doctors will help ween me off the steroids, which should allow me to lose 15 pounds or more and get back to as much of a normal life as possible.
Like the many of you also fighting cancer, we remain hopeful and vigilant. With your help, The Nancarrow Project was able to raise nearly $12,000 for other local brain cancer survivors during the SDBTF 5k. And we’re not done yet — we’ll announce our upcoming project(s) shortly.
I’ve been so impressed by all of the survivors I’ve met in recent months. Thank you for teaching me how to be strong.
