My daughter said if I had something serious they probably would let me know the results right away. I guess I agree...but would still like to know if anything showed up. Perhaps the doctor is waiting for the last blood test to come bac... Read more

It's not official, but the papers are sitting on the neurologist's desk to sign to take me off from work for 2 weeks (which can be extended if necessary). I hope he calls me today with the results of tests. His secretary said all the tes... Read more

Taking it easy while waiting for results of MRI/MRA etc, blood test and results of echocardiogram, also. I read the echocardiogram report and since I am not a doctor I cannot tell if the abnormalities are anything that need further testing ... Read more

Plan to go to gym this afternoon. Hope everyone has a good Sunday. I wrote another paragraph but hit that magic combination of keys that erase forever whatever I just wrote. It probably wasn't worth reading anyhow. Enjoy yo... Read more

I was anxious to get the blood draw done so I can get the results ASAP. The neurologist set up several MR's (MRI, MRA and MRV of brain) that are scheduled for next Tuesday to rule out brain tumors, sinus rupture and fluid on the brain. I am sch... Read more
A positive blog...for a change....

Nothing spectacular has occurred but I have decided I would feel a lot better "accentuating the positive" instead of hashing over what is wrong. The good news: I still have a job which provides excellent health insurance and therefore I am... Read more
Walked about 1.25 miles round trip to clinic yesterday....

I don't think I could have made the trip without my walker as my CPAP machine with humidifier is probably over 10 lb and my purse is another 6. My back has been sore and I have noticed walking very far (over a block) makes my back hurt. ... Read more

This morning I had a great breakfast under 200 calories. After I ate it and felt satisfied I tracked the calories and nutrition stats and was surprised it was so low in calories. It was also low in protein (I probably will have an egg or... Read more
