Remember that tumor?

January 27, 2010

Last year I was in a nasty cycling accident. Scans of my brain uncovered a benign tumor. Well, more precisely a colloid cyst, which I named Lil Craig. I had new scans taken last month. Good news and bad news. First, the bad. Lil Craig is no longer with us. RIP. Our time together was so short. Good news is, of course, I no longer have a growth in my melon.

I requested copies of both the original and recent brain CT scans. Scripps denied my request. Then I asked again, this time even more nicely. They agreed.

I don’t see Lil Craig in either set! Do you? I thought these would be pretty exciting, but I was disappointed. I will tell what is way more exciting than I expected. The CT Scan of my torso.

Abdominal CT Scan

Now that is awesome.

  1. I don’t see any brain matter? But at least you have a spine.

    ROFL … that last one is pretty cool … with those wavy lines on the side … it sort of looks like you are also sporting REAL long hair.
