As I said in yesterday’s post, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR because the Universe will always bring it to you. So, more opportunities to be of service right here in my own house! Duty has been diagnosed with a colloid cyst in his brain and will most likely be needing surgery to remove it. It’s NOT malignant and not even technically a tumor but it does need to come out because it can grow and possibly block the spinal fluid from circulating and that’s not a good thing.
We are headed to the neurosurgeon today to get more info about it. Although it’s brain surgery (and, as Duty puts it, documented proof that he does have a brain!), it’s usually a very successful surgery with minimal after effects (some short-lived short term memory loss is one of them but he’s always had that!).
So! Fun, yes?
Here’s a site that talks more about it but be warned that on subsequent pages of it, there are some small but graphic photos on the side of the page. These pictures, when viewed in a state of panic, can cause one to pass out for, oh 3-5 minutes and necessitate calling the EMS people to come make sure you are alive. Not mentioning any names (coughcoughdutycoughcough) but just sayin’, mmmkay? (They didn’t bother me but I also didn’t linger over them, click on them to enlarge them or have pending surgery on my haid either!)
Anyway, more when we know it.
