Hi Mulleca,

I Hope your well. I am not to bad thanks. I still have a bit of a werid feeling where I had my scar tissue removed from my left hippocampus. I haven't had any attacks since I had the scar removed though. Three days before I had my surgery I had quite a few attacks. I am getting stronger every day. I haven't got a headache thankfully. I appreciate everyone's prayers. Thank you so much.
talk to you soon please god.
