August 16, 2013 – MRI showed I have a brain tumor.
365 days later – Enjoying the last days of summer before I go back to Texas.
It is amazing how much can change in a year. I have completed my first semester of college at West Texas A&M with a 4.0 GPA, spent the summer in Paonia with family, and moved to six month check-ups with my doctors.
All in all, life is good. Went to Cody Johnson and Aaron Watson concerts, judged Beef Round Robin at the Delta County Fair, and got a decent tan. I wasn’t able to get a job in the Hotchkiss Paonia area, so many books were read over the summer. Looking forward, eight classes, WT Math Lab welcome desk secretary (hopefully – I have a phone interview Monday), and joining more organizations will keep me busy.
Leaving Wednesday for Texas; there should be no bumps in the road this time and make it to WT as planned.
Thank you everyone who has kept me in your thoughts and prayers. I am back to “normal” with a slight off-balance tendency. Even though there are many greater problems in this world, keep me in mind and prayers once in a while too.
