Mickey was brought to St. Cloud ER on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 because he was experiencing disorientation, short term memory loss, and struggled with balance. A CT scan revealed a mass in his brain that was blocking fluid drainage, resulting in increased pressure on the brain. He underwent emergency surgery to have two external drains placed.
A second surgery took place one week later to place two internal drains and biopsy the mass. One internal drain was successfully placed; one external drain remains. The external drain is closely monitored. The biopsy results will be back on Wednesday, August 14th. Mickey continues to stay at the hospital.
