Missy’s road to recovery

My wife is having brain surgery to remove a tumor. She will be unable to work for two or more months. I am working two jobs to prepare, but with daycare for two children and college tuition for one it’s going to be tight. 

She had her surgery on 9/29, the Neurosurgeon removed a 17x20 mm tumor near her brain stem. We now start the long road to recovery. We originally thought she would be able to come home on 10/1, but after her slow progress she will instead be admitted to a rehabilitation hospital.
