Our son called. He is serving in the US Marine Corp, stationed in New York. He has a lovely wife and 2 small children. Aaron is our only son.
He has been having some problems in his head with flashes of light then a severe headache, any time he has any kind of energy he exerts.
He went to 2 doctors and they tried to tell him he was dehydrated and he KNEW that was not it. He has served in the Corp. for 7 years and he is aware of such things. He is a 6 foot 3 man who works out everyday and knows his body.
Finally he talked the doctor into a CAT scan. That night the CAT scan was reviewed and the doc called and said to go see a Neurologist. They found some cysts in his brain and fluid in that part of his brain and running down his spine that should not be there. They said that could be viral and not serious but should not make the pain and flashes of light come to him.
So he has more tests next week. He was taken off his flight and is at home, and not to do anything, pretty much.
They will total scan every part of his brain as they are afraid it could be an aneurysm. I am scared to death.
Our daughter has been ill for a couple of months now as she got MRSA which is a staff infection and was treated with an anti biotic which apparently she had a re-action to. She is a nurse and went into diabetes type 2 and possible has lupus. They had her on steroids for several weeks so we are still waiting for the tests to be run on her.
I just feel like WHAT NEXT???
They say when God closes a door he opens a window. I think I am on lockdown. :(
