The Birthday Treat!

So it turns out that we don’t have a brain tumor. We have what’s called a Pseudotumor. Just localized swelling. It happens to be behind his eye which is why it’s causing a lot of pressure there. If he hadn’t had the stroke and it was left untreated it might have pushed his eye all the way out. They are treating it with steroids and it is responding well.

He will be coming home in a couple/few days.

    Er, good news? If a rather gruesome visual! But steroids instead of surgery is definitely woo hoo!
