Home

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.

    I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this site.
    I am hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.

    😉

  2. Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely
    off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thanks!

  3. I’m glad you’re home and feeling wonderful each day. We missed you guys @ Little Moore and i keep on praying for your recovery and the family’s faith and courage to do so. I know it’s a rough road to take but by each step of perseverance and determination you guys will be able to go through it. I know how hard it is for the family to watch you when your not yourself but when that little strength of courage you showed them that you’re tough as a bull and will be able to make it through thin line that would make their day a great one with smile on their face. We missed you guys and we keep on praying for your full recovery. We’ll see you sometime, somehow again @ Little Moore 🙂

    “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life… that line is a killer all by itself. It’s true we all go on to… but it is profound none the less.

    I hate to see YOU go anywhere but to the camera for a smile to San Diego with a bit of news for the garden.

    I know a few things about that which you and jobs speak… woke up in the ICU one day and they tell me my blood sugar was over 1200… should a been dead then and there. Now I’m working on getting some of my life long desire done… as an author to be I see the next book here and there. the opening line (“Remembering…) would make a hell of an opening for a book.
    With your permission I think I”ll use it
