It was a year ago today I sent Al off to the doctor to get his eye checked out. Technically this is when our life started to take on a new look. The appointment a year ago was the start of discovering his brain tumor. I have questioned a million times if we should have declined the surgery. Dr. Wallace has reassured me what feels like a million times that without the surgery Al would most definitely have suffered a fatal stroke in time. Al has felt a bit perkier this week since finishing the most recent course of antibiotic. We are both heading to the University tomorrow afternoon to be part of a teaching session for physiotherapy students. I have been part of these sessions for the past 6 years and I enjoy it. I enjoy being part of a learning experience. It’s almost like being a Professor for a day. You get to talk about something you are expert in. I am hoping Alistair enjoys the interaction and sees that it is part of turning a shitty thing into something positive. We have sun here today and are finally into double digits.
