Feeling Greatful/Behind the Lyric

Two days before hurricane Harvey I got a report from my neurologist saying I had two benign brain tumors. It took me a few days to process her message and by then hurricane Harvey hit. My house got 6 inches of water in it. A week after the storm a remediation company came and they cut 24 inches of wall throughout my home and cleaned up all the mud that covered the floors.
I did my usual wining to my trusted friends, then after that I sent my medical information unto a relative who reviewed the findings.

Like real estate in where a tumor is located determines value, location determines the need for swift action. Mine was in the retina canal, millimeters behind the optic nerve. Even noncancerous legions grow and that was the danger I was faced.
I got to the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota Wednesday night two weeks ago. On monday last week the tumor was removed. I spent the rest of last week in recovery and the step down unit.

Today, I am home and the sheet rock people are here to rebuild my home. I will be laid up in various hotel for several weeks. The unexpectedness and swiftness of the entire ordeal, left me overwelmned.

This is a condensed version of my emotions. In the past I had to deal with some tougher issues and felt disappointed in the unwilliness of some to assist or realize I truly needed their support.  In my present circumstance I've let go of my expectations. Though I am still greatly disappointed I am greatful because I had flood insurance and health insurance and most importantly the best doctors in the world treating me.

I wrote a song of thanksgiving during difficult times. My hopes is that I will receive healing and that my tomorrows will be better than this moment.

My only desire is for people to listen and appreciate the message in my lyrics. It was only by the grace of God I was able to post today.

The picture is of me being prepared for gamma radiation months after my first surgery.
