The girl next door

How bizarre is life! You won't believe it but my next door neighbour, is going for the exact same brain operation! She is LITERALLY in the house next to ours. She is going to Cape Town, meeting with Dr Butler and Dr Melville. They are doing the whole grid thing, scanning and surgery.

She is about the same age as I am, has 2 small children and started having quite bad seizures during the second pregnancy. She does not have a tumour, but rather epilepsy in a particular area that developed when she was at university. No-one knows why it developed. She has focal seizures which means that she looses feeling and ability in her left hand and eye and the occasonal grand mal. Can you believe that?
