Man, I know I've been off for a while when I log on and see so many postings from Rune. Finally came out of hiding, huh, Sweetheart.
I do have an excuse for myself though, works for anything and everything,.......I'm temporarily drain bamaged.
Seriously though guys thanks bunches for all the well wishes and blessings,I personally I am more worried for my family more than myself. I'll be in good hands, well taken care of, and best of all well medicated
. My hubby seems to be holding up (more like holding in), though, of course he's my rock,
Well for the quick details, Like hubby said vascular malformation (REALLY FLIPPIN' BIG!!!) Large mass takes a lot of room,my brain gets shoved in all directions form inside my RT frontal lobe, I'm dizzy, blurred vision, dbl. vision, nausea, headaches. Kind of like being drunk but with all the neg. aspects and none of the good. If it stays much longer I run the risk of Hemmorage, stroke, or convulsions, It is very close to the left side of the brain that controls my speech, it is deep inside the lobe, and the pressure could cause my optical nerve to burst and leave me blind.
Want the wonderful news? The procederures are just as pleasant as the diagnosis. They get to go in by doing an angiagram and yes they feel they must go in through the groin(seems like the scenic route to the brain to me), they then shoot glue and tiny particles to embolize it (block it off). Then they will go in surgically and clip it.
We'll see if Rune can help post some pics of me bald
The thing is if we wait for medi-cal to approve everything I could be a done thing. But I was blessed when a little bird flew in and gave my an idea. We have to be a little more ninja about it, so Ray, my sister by choice, and I Have planned a little trip to LA, ya know to visit my sis, see the sights, maybe hit the beach. Now all the doctors said if my headaches get worse to go straight to the emergency room. You know guys it is amazing how the smog in LA can cause headaches and I here people are especially prone to those while traveling near UCLA.Hmmmm......
Mealroth will try to keep everyone posted otherwise we'll have to get one of the kids to log in finally and say hi too. I love all of you for no matter where we wander or how long we've been gone... we're still family
