So it really is a tumor. Went to the doctor today and he confirmed it. He did not have the scans with him so he could not tell us much more. We have to go back on Tuesday to look at the scans and discuss a course of treatment: Radiotherapy or brain surgery to remove it as good as possible. Depends on where in the brain the tumor is. Will blog more about it after we have finished our 2 tubs of Ben & Jerry’s we bought on the way home.
