It Takes A Brain Surgeon

| Chicago, IL, USA | Learning | November 20, 2015

(I was born with a neurological condition called hydrocephalus – “water on the brain.” Basically, I have too much fluid in my brain, so I have a surgical drainage tube (shunt) implanted which drains the excess fluid into my abdomen. My junior high school decides to do scoliosis testing on the students. This involves stripping down to my underwear so the testers can examine my spine. As a result of my shunt placements, I have surgical scars on my head, neck, and lower abdomen. One of the testers sees my abdominal scar:)

Tester: “What it was from?”

Me: “Brain surgery.”
