Sorry for the gnarly photo... Made it home this afternoon from my surgery for the removal of an acoustic neuroma at UVA on Tuesday. Turns out that it had grown since the MRI I had in October & I was on the table for 12 hrs getting it out. Everyone at UVA was awesome & I seem to be recovering pretty quickly. Apparently my left ear had already been compensating pretty hard for the weakness due to the tumor on the other side. Seriously. If you've been feeling shitty for a while & Drs aren't listening to you... see more Drs until one does. Looking forward to making art again & getting back to tattooing in 6 weeks.
