"I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was like so full the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull... sounds so weird."
She announced a few weeks off and said, "I feel like s--- so we're gonna go. Pardon my language but I think that I've earned it today. So yeah, we're going to get me home."
