Asking Y'all again

Another request for thoughts, energy and prayers from everyone. This time it's for Draconia. We joke about how she just had to one up me on having health problems. :roll: (we have to laugh). She went to the eye doc for a routine exam, he sends her to a specialist because her optic nerve is swollen, specialist sends her for an MRI he wants more info. MRI specialist tells wife she has a vascular malformity in the middle layers of her right frontal lobe. Basically a blood vessel in her brain is weak and swelling (3cm *2cm*3cm roughly) this has been going on for awhile (we just found out last week) it is not a tumor or cancerous. However any option for correcting it requires brain surgery or radiation treatments :cry:

There is also the problem of what has happened to our medi-cal and how we will be able to afford this.

I and Draconia would be grateful for your prayers.

blessed be

Oh honey. My thoughts, love and blessings with you all. There's nothing worse than unexpected medical problems when your wallet least expects it. Keep us updated on how Draconia goes with everything.

We see the neurosurgeon for a preliminary diagnosis today, Hopefully we will know more after that. Then it will be up to the doc and the insurance people to determine my wife,s fate.

Thanks again you guys.

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. :roll: 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 :-D . 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. :axe: We'll see if Rune can help post some pics of me bald #-o .
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 :GHug:

Hey, can you guys spare a little calming energy for the family. I know they are all more worried than they let on to be. I don't understand why people become afraid to express their emotions and fears. When this all came about I realized that there is a possibility that I might not make it. Why deny it? I however am going to be fine no matter what, I have acknowledged the risks, accepted them and the possible outcomes and then put them to bed. I also know that I am to darn stubborn to give up, decided my turn on Earth is nowhere near over, and anyway the Hubby and I made a promise to each other that we wouldn't leave the other to do this parenting stuff on their own, and I'm not about to break that promise. I know the kids are holding a lot in. I just had to deal with the 8 yr. old crying last night that he didn't want me to go, he wanted me to take care of him instead of his older siblings. I had to sit down and explain that if I didn't he wouldn't have a mommy around at all and had to explain what the doctors needed to do and why. Boy! That one was hard. So please when you send blessings my way remember to send a little their way too. Thanks again everyone for your love and support.

Awe darlin. Looks like you're in for a heck of a time. Much love and blessings to you and your family. You're a strong woman, so like you said, you'll be right no matter what. Just take a bit for the rest of them to get past the shock, and then they'll be alright. However, I will send them all my blessings and keep you all well and truly in my thoughts.

:hug: :hug:
