A week ago my sister – the aforementioned “Girl” – went through her third and final brain surgery which involved extracting a piece her brain in the frontal lobe to eradicate her epilepsy (seizures) and the after brain surgery pictures are amazing. So far the surgery seems to have gone as expected and my sister has regained full cognitive and physical function with no apparent signs of seizures or negative impacts from the surgery.
This of course is what my family expected and hoped for; but what we did not expect was the beautiful, fascinating, mesmerizing, adjective, adjective, etc. pictures that came to be as a result of the brain surgery. You can probably infer what a brain resection is, but just to make sure, the doctors literally cut-open your head and take out a piece of your brain, a f*cking piece of your brain – it’s crazy. Update: as my Dad pointed out to me I “forgot part about cutting, removing, and replacing part of the skull…” That was the first part of her 3 surgeries.
Enough text, here are the (dare I say epic?) pictures with which I will apply the pseudo-artsy-intellectual title of “Girl After Brain Surgery“:
My album is like Leon Phelps’ car, because that sh*t doesn’t exist, but if it did, one of these would by on the cover.
