Okay we went to Emory yesterday and the doctor. I liked this doctor better if Rick needed surgery, but he did think he was pretty hot stuff. Basically he said about the same thing. He added another word - spontaneous was the word - spontaneous bilateral subdural hematomas. When we get older - good news - our brain shrinks. And then that leaves space in between the dural and the brain. There are veins in the surface of the brain and they weaken - especially if you get hit or he said you could turn wrong. (Not everyone gets these so don't worry.) And thus they can come spontaneously.
Apparently where he got them was like the best place - not in the brain and not outside the Dural. Have I lost you? Okay if they keep shrinking - over a long time - fine - keep an eye on them and have CT scans every 6 weeks. If they form scar tissue or start to bleed and become chronic - then surgery. So he was a lot more technical today - but basically said what the other doctor said - wait and see. Which is better than brain surgery.
I thank all of you for going thru this with me!
My daughter and grandson are on their way home from Florida. I missed them. I know they had a good time, but it will be nice for them to come home.
