Boomers! Part 2

Strange how the body works, especially to the average person. He couldn't put what he was feeling into words, just that he didn't feel good and he felt like he was in a tunnel.

We rode to the hospital and entered the Emergency Room at 2:30 PM promptly being shown to the waiting area which was pretty empty. After a short wait the nurse took him in and we were on our way down an 8 hour journey of emergency medicine diagnostics. Blood tests, x-rays, CAT Scan. After reviewing the CAT Scan the doctor ordered an MRI because there was something "suggestive" on the CAT Scan, possibly an aneurysm in the brain. The MRI confirmed it, there is a 2 millimeter aneurysm. It's small and the action is to just follow up with a neurologist regularly, apparently it's too small to really to anything else but watch. It sure is scary though, kinda like a time bomb in the brain... the ER surgeon agreed. All is good, we just need to get to a neurologist to keep an eye on this.

Yikes, Maggie. That's a fright. Is he feeling any better now? Sending best thoughts your way.

Hilary, he's doing much better. I think we just need to keep a watch on things. In time it will all be good, I'm sure.
