Today's is the Day I'm finally going home! Thank you so much for the flowers, prayers, love, and support. I have enough strength to post today so I wanted to show you, flaws and all, that I'm doing better 💙 2 days ago I thought I wasn't going to make it. My Cerebral Spinal fluid was leaking, bad vertigo, fevers. I couldn't get up for 5 days and 2 days I was completely motionless. I couldn't sit up nor eat. I have consumed less than 500 calories in 8 days. I was about to let go, but I heard my grandpa who is in Heaven tell me to keep on going and that he loves me, and so I did...My only food was pain meds and more meds, but now I am finally eating some potato chips and they taste like Heaven. Hallelujah I'm feeling like a new human being again. Each day I'll take in stride. I also want to thank Mama V for being by my side each day and not leaving me for an instant! She helped me every step of the way. I've been humbled by such love 💜 God has blessed me with great physicians here at Duke and has bought me through the toughest battle of my life. Please continue to remember me in prayer. One of my favorite verses, Jeremiah 29:11, reminds me there is a reason and through this I know God has a purpose 💜 here's to the days to come! I can't wait to wash my hair 😂🙋🏻 #paraganglioma #braintumor #tumorsurvivor #idontknowhowimsotan #glomusjugulare #dukecancercenter #neuroscience #nike @nike ps my face is still swollen and I'm working on opening my eyes fully and teaching myself to walk again.
