March 23rd, 2013 is that first day I try this “blogging” thing out just because I thought that people who actually took the time to do a blog for a reason, and not just for the hell of it, were interesting.

This brain testing would be an interesting subject to blog about (if someone could find my brain to test). Anyways, I wanted a worthwhile subject. But this subject would also give me something to look forward doing while sitting in a hospital… JUST for testing with things on my head. (testing… testing… 1 2 3…)

After some TESTING, the one idea of (easily implanted) VNS Therapy goes away, the decision was made on the Full Fledged Brain Surgery. Mmmmm..

So, the rest is history.

One year ago, just after all the testings and surgeries and other things, I was JUST BEGINNING the healing process along with therapy. That healing part has been quite impressive, as far as brain healing goes. Hasn’t finished, I believe, or maybe it’s just changing because of age. Maybe? Who know?

I remember all of that being very interesting as far as my brain beginning to cooperate with me and let me do things. I’m READING better. I’ve been enjoying that a bunch. Recently, I can’t seem to convince myself, even though I have been doing it better, that I am not a super fast reader. I’m buying books on my Kindle often. (STOP that, Mr. Brain. We need to read the other one first!) Anyways…

I am seeing my new pair of Psych people recently. That has been interesting with my weekly Psych. Every Wednesday. Gives me something to look forward to. 🙂

What to look forward to and do within the next year? Good question. Nothing is coming to mind right now (I’m kinda cold in the brain), but I believe there will be some great changes with my mind and brain. Everything has been going pretty good with this thing (knocking on my head) and lets just all wait and see. I have been, and will continue to, writing more blog entries into this website. There might be a couple people out there that actually read it? Eh, who knows. 🙂  But, never the less, I will keep this going as long as this brain-thing lets me.


  1. Darren, thanks for your updates, We appreciate them. Keep on plugging and you have a lot of people pulling for you.
    Bob and Nancy Bleck


  2. Just keep the brain active! What ever happened to the idea of volunteering at a hospital or rehabilitation clinic. That would sure keep the Mr. Brain active. Keep on going and try new things. Wishing you great advancements in the coming year!

    Your GG friend Anne
