  1. Just had a phone call from the hospital: my coils are all functioning properly and everything is as they’d expect. Repeat scan in 12 months. I’m currently grinning like a Cheshire Cat. Such a relief. Mustn’t think about 12 months’ time just get on with life 🎉🎉 Sally xx

  2. Hello Rory, and also a warm welcome to BTG. So glad you found the site early and as others have said, you will receive great support. In reading the various Forums, you will get a wide perspective of SAH/ NASAH and what is has meant for our many members. Over the years BTG has been a focus for several US survivors from a wide range of states. You will come across their posts as you read. Like you our members began with little help and information about what to expect, and in some way that is understandable as the effects of brain trauma are varied in severity and longevity. Dama

So there's no problem with "FOMO" (or "fear of missing out," in case you hadn't seen that one.) I've actually been enjoying this time with my wife and cats, getting some reading done, watching lots of movies, walking the neighborhood, and listening to music. And, of course, taking naps!

  6. Well, I am ecstatic on this cold, bright and snowy afternoon. I have just come in from decorating my daughter's new flat and find a letter from the hospital saying, "I write to advise you that the scans you had on 14th January show everything is stable" It then goes on to say "Dr. Dyde has arranged a further scan to be performed in 18 months and we will write to you with the results when they are available. Currently no further treatment is planned" I am so happy, I could cry! In fact I didn't just get one letter saying this, I got two - an identical letter which
