I hope this is nothing serious for Thiago.

I hope everything is ok.

I had to have a CT scan of my brain once a few years ago. They did it and then told me they'd tell me the results after taking me back to the ER. Then they came and got me again for another one and then again for a third all in the span of about an hour. Come to find out, the machine kept picking up some "artifact" and they said I was fine and sent me home. This was after a seizure I had while working in the pediatric ER across the parking lot. I had never had a seizure before and have not had one since. I even quit breathing during it and they started to code me. I have not had a follow up CT scan and I'm sure I'm fine. :unsure-1: :laugh:

DANG IT! This was one of the fights I was most looking forward to. I wonder who will move up? I hope they move this fight to another card because I'd hate to see Fitch take a lesser opponent and be sidelined for a while.

yeah right .. fitch ducked him last time ... what's his excuse gonna be this time? he was training to face a striker not a grappler?

this is such short notice ... fitch will probably get paid and not have to fight or make weight ... not a bad deal .... LOL

Matt could say "I'm at 185 right now tell Jon to quit cutting and I'll be right over to feed him some elbows".
Then Matt jumps to # 2-3 spot!

that would be pretty cool but im not sure if it would be the smartest move. i think he should just focus on renzo. i would be excited though if it did happen. fitch may have to sit this one out.

Very bad news, I hope he will be OK.

Amy, that is very scary what happened to you. And I'm sure you thought the worst when they called you back to do repeated scans!! Hopefully, you will never need one again.

Yep, it was scary. It really freaked my mom out. I had already decided that I had brain cancer. You know how us nurses are. :laugh: Evidently it was some one time weird thing since that was 5 years ago and I've been fine ever since.

Hmmm, we'll see. But if he does, it looks like we could have another instant #1 contender for the belt!

Goodness... my wife had an episode about a month ago now. She woke up for work, she's an RN as well, and gave me a hug, went to the shower. Literally 10 seconds had passed, she called my name. It took me probably five seconds to get back there and she was WHITE, I mean WHITE WHITE, laying in the tub, having a seizure.

Took her to the ER where she works, they did a complete work up... no shift, blood was fine, sugar, etc... couldn't really tell what had caused it.

it looks like you are correct because dana confirmed this. its simple why he says this and that is because business is business and no one other than people who dont like gsp and myself (a kos rematch semi-intrigues me) wants to see any rematches with kos or fitch or what have you.

War Ben!! Nothing against Fitch,but I'm not diggin' another rematch with GSP.
Hopefully Paulo or Dayle will be next in line assuming Dayle gets passed KOS. I bet this gets KOS panties in a bunch knowing Saunders may get next shot :)

Yep. I was told that they had no idea why I would have a seizure out of the blue like that. At least I had mine IN the ER where I was working at the time since I quit breathing and all. :unsure-1: I've been fine ever since so hopefully it's the same way with your wife.

The article said it could be an abnormal artery......WOW....I hope that is not the case, aneurysm's are usually catastrophic. However, he could have it repaired, depending on where it is in the brain.

Something isn't adding up.

He needs
"minor brain surgery"

but he will be back in the gym in 2 weeks?

If it is an aneurysm that has not ballooned yet, there is a procedure where they shoot coils into the area to help strenghten the artery wall. From what I understand, it is pretty non invasive. Perhaps Texas RN or Neezar could elaborate.

I have no clue about brain surgery. That's one area in which I've never worked and I'm sure the technology has advanced hugely since I went to nursing school. Sorry. What you said sounds right though.
