Ticking Time Bomb

We asked to see Naya’s latest MRI image this weekend. And it’s an imagine we wished we could un-see.

We know Naya needs one more surgery to address the “cyst” as Neurosurgery calls it. But the word cyst doesn’t accurately describe the giant fluid mass in our daughter’s brain.

She has has been waking up at night with head pain. No nausea tho which is surprising considering the size of the “cyst.”  But this is yet another example of how amazingly accommodating the brain and body is. The fluid accumulation has been so gradual, the brain tissue has slowly compressed. If this fluid had come on all of a sudden, Naya would have been severely ill by now.

So now we wait… for surgery sometime next week. Tick tick tick….
