View Full Version : Scared

My little brother had a hospital appointment this morning. He's been having some trouble with sickness for a while and the medicine the doctor prescribed last time was making it worse. I was expecting my mum to call with news of what happened but my aunty called instead and told me he'd been taken into hospital and it might be a brain tumour :help: She didn't sound too sure of anything and I don't think I took the rest of the call in properly after she said the word tumour so I don't know how bad it is.

I don't know anything else at the moment and I'm worried and on my own waiting for news (DH is at work).

If anyone has a moment to say a prayer for my little brother I would really appreciate it.

Please keep us posted.

His name is Timothy (Timmy).

I've spoken to my mum now. They've found some sort of lump in his brain so he's been admitted to hospital. He'll be having an MRI scan tomorrow and hopefully an operation on Friday. After that they should have the test results within a week.

Thank you to everyone for your replies :grphug:

Hiya Jen

My thoughts are with you and your family.

The results of the scan aren't good. It's in a different position and worse than they thought. My mum and stepdad have been given the choice of leave it and Timmy will be monitored but he will get worse or they can operate. With the operation the best case scenario is he stays as he is now (which is worse than I thought) or worst is he will end up paralysed.

They have chosen to operate and it will hopefully be tomorrow.

I'm still in shock at the moment and don't know how to feel but I really appreciate your thoughts, prayers and kind words. Thank you so much everyone xxx

What exactly does this mean? Is it malignant or just in a bad place where it's affecting certain functions?

I'm so sorry...

05-08-2008, 06:02 PM
Oh, dear...what a hard thing for Timmy and all of you to go through. I will certainly keep him and your family in my prayers. God is good and He will bring you all through this - have faith, my friend. :hug:

I'm so sorry...

I'm not sure, but I think it's the second one. I'll be going to see him this afternoon so I might learn more then.

Thank you again everyone, your messages have been a comfort to me xxx
