Hubby's down again...

I spent most of yesterday in the ER with Hubby. He had a severe headache start on Wednesday afternoon and it's still hanging on. It's a very strange headache; it's positional. If he is lying flat on his back there is no headache, but as soon as he stands up it starts in his neck and creeps up into his head and is quite severe; the worst headache he's ever had; in fact he says it feels more like a concussion. He has even had nausea and vomiting with it.

I feel better that we went to the ER and they ran a head cat scan and an MRI, and there were no signs of a brain bleed or a tumor; that is something they look for when headaches are more positional.

Please pray for Kevin to feel better soon. He is supposed to call his back surgeon Monday morning and let him know if he has had any relief yet; because the MRI showed a space in his surgical area that spinal fluid could escape, but the images did not show and fluid pockets of build up, so they don't think that is the cause, not yet anyhow. I pray that it's just a virus and that it will soon go away!

He missed work Thursday and Friday, and he had only been back one week; since returning from his back surgery. We pray that he can soon return to work and usual.

Love one another!~Yvonne
