No surgery....yeah!

I thought for sure I would be headed back for more surgery after the leak in my patch, meningitis and hydrocephalus but after my CT And spinal tap yesterday, Dr. Rosner says if I continue to feel good, without the return of any balance or gait issues, then we will leave well enough alone. Still have my “plump” ventricles which can cause pressure problems and I am still taking a very low dose of steroid for the sterile meningitis. It is such a relief to feel good again and not be scared that my old symptoms are returning. There is no active leak and the pool of spinal fluid from the original leak has diminished. Dr. Rosner promised me he’d get me back to where I was and he kept his promise. He is my hero!
