    Have you ever felted like nothing is going right and around every corner theres something bad just waiting for you. Well thats how I'm feeling now..

    I got some good and bad news today from the doctor today. First the GOOD news my blood presser is getting better. Still a little high, but much better. Now to the BAD news it seems that I have a small bleed in my brain. Which was detected by a MRI that I had done last May, but this was the first I heard about it..

    Now I have to go see a specialist and get a bone scan done.. I'm scared to death, because I am the only parnet my son has left.. But I don't think GOD could be that cruel to him..

    So PLEASE keep me in your prayers and I will update when I get more news.. Thank all of you for your support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :depressed: :2scared: and i need alot of these. :angel2:

    If they noticed a small bleed on the MRI, they should have called you immediately. If there is something serious going on, you should find yourself a good lawyer.

    This showed up last May and you are just now hearing about it?


    Sending good thoughts, BB.

    Your docs must be related to the docs in this town. Nothing is ever diagnosed.

    I pray that this can be helped ASAP without lasting effects.

    Good point, Loth!

    Is this an old bleed? Like, an old stroke? Lots of people have those.

    If it's new, I agree with-Loth, I'd be hightailing it to the 1st atty I could find.

    Is it from medication? Like, are you on too much coumadin?

    I'm glad your blood pressure is down, though. Except this news probably sent it straight back up!

    I am so sorry. I know you are worried, esp for your son's sake. I agree that you should find a GOOD lawyer because not telling you until now, 9 months later, certainly should be actionable, esp if it is something serious.

    On the other hand, at least you know now and can do whatever is needed to make it better and prevent other brain bleeds. You should push for a new MRI to make sure there are no other brain bleeds.

    Be good to yourself. We are here for you.
