Hello guys. How are you today?
First of all, I am blessing to have so many people around me. When I woke up every morning, God is giving me another day of life to me. (Ya Allah, nikmat utama ialah Islam).
As I breathe this morning, I talk to myself, and I look to one of my cats, Danise. She says, MEOWWWWWW to me..(What are you looking at?- I translate for you, maybe this is what she trying to say to me)
The above photo is Danise this morning. I try to cut some of her fur, especially at her butt, but she will wake up, catch my hand and after that, I don't know where the scissor is missing. I am trying to do it while she was asleep (and tido mati)..Guest what, Danise will wake up.
Back to the title "Everyone adapts to survive", it means everything’s to me.
I've been diagnosed with brain tumor last two years, July 2010. It was really shock to me as I try to keep it to myself. But I can't. The news tells me something as it affects my life and my future. In a situation like this, I try to calm down and to think wisely. I should sit down first and to allow the news to "adapt" to my situation.
What should I do then? I started to think about my life, my future and of course about you and all of you. I also think of my cats as they are already part of my life.
I look for the information - brain tumor, acoustic neuroma and etc, on the internet. I looked and looked, the information about what to expect and what will happen to me in the future was unfortunately, not relate to my conditions. As I search the web, I also found about Yvonne Foong.
I also think about my life insurance and my students.
The key when receiving such news is "do not panic". Syida, do not panic. Syida, you must learn to adapt in order to survive.
Now, I still feel some pain from the first surgery. My attempt to remove the tumor which was carried out at HUKM leaves a prolong effects. I still feel some headache and etc.
The wound in my head (near my right ear) from my first attempt is large and can be seen, as compared to the wound which was performed in USA, House Ear Clinic and St. Vincent Medical Center, as the second wound almost disappear and cannot be seen.
