Good News

If you read my last blog, you would know how stressed I've been over my sister in the past few days. Well, we received some good news today.

My sister does have a cyst on her brain, and it's not in a very good place. It's right in the heart of her brain, where the blood vessels come in and where activity happens. I'm sure you're wondering how this is good news. Well, the cyst isn't touching anything. It's just there and not bothering anything. The reason for her episodes is what the doctor believes to be migraines. He said there are people who lose their speech, eyesight, and more when experiencing one of these headaches. He believes that this is what she is experiencing.

The good news is that there doesn't seem to be a need for surgery, at least not at the moment. The bad news is that she can still suffer these at ANY time. The doctor gave her a list of things she shouldn't eat or drink and wants to follow up with her to watch the cyst and monitor her migraines.

Thank you for all the prayers :-)

That IS good news! I get migraines sometimes...where I can't see and my arm goes numb. Luckily...they aren't very often.
