    And that's all I know. They sent me to another hospital that has specialists. They didn't want to wait until tomorrow. I came home because I couldn't leave my kids home alone all night and t he hospital isn't close. They feel the cyst is pressing on the optic nerve and maybe there was an old bleed in his brain...but, really, they know nothing more than there is a cyst. From what I read, that means brain surgery.

    I am freaking out and guess I just wanted to vent. I'm waiting for more information and won't sleep much tonight.Not going to be a good Mothers Day!

    Sending good thoughts.

    My husband had to have brain surgery 5 years ago. He is still doing well. It is very scary to think about but the doctors do know what they are doing and have lots of technology to guide them in the surgery.

    Hugs and prayers MWM.

    Two little good thoughts of good hope to hang on too. Remember when Fran's son had that pretty large cyst in his brain and they had to go in and remove it? Well he is doing just fine now. I believe he does have to take a seizure medication but heck, that is peanuts versus what could be. He is now in college! Also remember when Tony had that small stroke back in 07? That was on his optic nerve too and it cleared up with no evidence since then. He is just fine now. Well, he is a normal almost 50 year old man who has all the wear and tear on himself that is normal for a guy who has worked in the construction field all his life but nothing related to the stroke.
