One year. Wow. Today marks one year. A year ago I was at the hospital preparing for the biggest moment of my life. Bigger than graduating from university. Bigger than moving to China. Bigger than getting married. The thing we compare so many scenarios to, “it’s not brain surgery.” Except this time, it WAS brain surgery! Or in fancy medical terms a craniotomy. I remember sitting alone in my pre-op room, dressed in my hospital gown and red surgery socks, IV in, and ready to go.
