Marv's journey started by noticing a loss of vision on his trip home from Louisville for a Pork Forum on March 11. At that time he thought it was just a temporary thing and it would "just get better". Unfortunately that was not the case. Fast forward to this week. Marv went to the eye doctor on Tuesday afternoon to have them look at his eyes and see why he had a blind spot. His eyes checked out fine but Dr Driesen was concerned something was going on elsewhere and insisted he go straight to the ER for further workup. Thankfully he was able to have an MRI of his brain done through the ER late Tuesday afternoon so we didn't have to wait for any insurance authorizations. Unfortunately a tennis ball sized mass was found on the right side of his brain.
