Spent the night in the ER

He felt like he might have a seizure last night, so he went to the ER last night. A CAT scan shows things being about the same, but his brain is still swelling. They have increased his medications, and that has the swelling down again. This time, he felt something in his tongue and lips, but he never felt any muscle control problems, and his speech wasn't affected. He could feel pressure in his head.

This has accelerated the process with MD Anderson. They need to take another MRI in Arkansas, and then send all the scans plus a sample of the tissue extracted during surgery to MD Anderson. It looks like we might have an appointment by Tuesday at earliest even then.

He and his Mom are still at the hospital. I didn't talk with Tony, but his Mom is having a hard time with this. I plan to leave this weekend to go to Arkansas.
