It has been confirmed...

My husband is weird. Another doctor has told him that :)

We met with the vascular surgeon today. Before he can do surgery, Ben has to get another test. He needs an arteriogram because they could not tell exactly how the blood flows through the artery from the doppler ultrasound. So he goes in tomorrow for the arteriogram, after which the doctor will tell us what the treatment options are.

The good news, he also does not think that it is a malignant tumor, so the chances are pretty slim on that one.

The bad news, the doctor only deals with vascular surgery on the extremities so he was of no help looking at the brain MRI to see if he noticed any malformations that could be causing the headache.

That is all for now!
