Last Sunday, my wife collapsed in the church parking lot on the way to Mass. She was unresponsive for a minute, or so. We went to the doctor within the hour and it was initially diagnosed as some kind of a seizure. My wife and daughter noticed shaking, but I was apparently looking at her face too closely to notice. Afterwards, she also commented on half of her body feeling numb, but she did pass the stroke tests at the doctor’s office. We had the MRI this week, and they have found a (possible) small tumor in the frontal lobe. If it’s not a tumor, the message indicated that it may be damage caused by a small stroke. (We have asked for an MRI in the past for issues, but the doctor declined–attributing some symptoms to stress-related issues.) Not only would I greatly appreciate prayer for my wife, but I’d appreciate prayer regarding my own anger towards the doctor—who announced these results via e-mail shortly before leaving for a long weekend.
If anyone out there with a medical background might also shed some light on treatment options, any general thoughts or shared experience would be appreciated. Thank you.
