-- just say no to brain surgery


Relief. I was getting checked over for optical migraines last month when an MRI revealed a vascular abnormality. It was either an arterio-venous malformation aka AVM (extremely worrisome), or a venous angioma (no big deal). AVMs require surgery for correction, venous angiomas do not. Just had a second MRI which confirmed the latter (Thank the spaghetti monster!). There was just a wee bit of stress in that interim period...

Anyway it's not a big deal. Life goes on.
