This blog is mine, but it’s also a lot about the people in my family.
Who am I?
I’m a parent with a four-year-old who has food allergies including: dairy, egg, peanut, fish, and shellfish. She was also recently diagnosed with a brain tumour (low grade, slow growing, but in a pretty crucial location). She had surgery to remove about 80% of it, but suffered a stroke that took out her right side. She’s working her way back and we’re learning to manage rehab and our new reality with a pediatric brain tumour and the visual and physical disabilities that have come along with it.
What’s the deal?
I not working right now, so I’m the front line on managing most things kid and family and recovery related.
I’m not an expert in anything.
If you have questions or concerns (about any of the conditions I talk about or about similar concerns in your own life) please contact a trained medical professional.
If you’re in the midst of any of this yourself, or if you’re a friend, family member, colleague, or educator of someone who is, I’d love to hear from you about your experiences.
Thanks for reading,
