Hi everybody, Is anyone still here? I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone had up and left by now. I guess it’s time for another update. Well, basically nothing has changed, and a lot has happened. Non-health stuff first. My nephew has been sent off to university. It feels a little bitter sweet. We will miss him, but know he will thrive. Second, we lost a beloved member of our family about a month ago. Our special-black-pug Sadie died. Her heart stopped one night. We count our blessings we had almost 3 great years with her, it was fast and she didn’t suffer, and we were awake and with her. But, I guess when a door closes, a window is opened, and we have also acquired a new addition to our family.
Her name is Daisy, and she is a 4 year old shihzu poodle cross. She is an energetic, cuddly little thing.
Now the health stuff. I will try for the shortened version. Well, my eye never got better, and maybe even worse. I finally got in to the neurologist, who got me an MRI very quickly. Between the time I did the MRI, and got back to see him (about 3 weeks) I lost feeling in my left leg. Turns out I have inflammation in different parts of my brain, which is what is causing all these various parts of me to stop working. He said if he were to look at the scan, and had not met me, he would have said it’s M.S. (which is what we suspected all along). He says it doesn’t match my age though, and that sends up red flags. M.S. usually shows up when someone is in their 20’s, and because I am well in to my 30’s *cough*, he doesn’t want to jump to conclusions. So, for now, I have a whole bunch more tests scheduled, to either confirm, or rule out anything else. And so in the meantime, we wait some more.
So, to my ever-growing sadness, I haven’t read a book in 4 months. I miss it. There are books on tape, but it isn’t quite the same. On the bright side, not reading has opened up lots of time for other activities. I have been watching a whole bunch of movies, and even doing some art. And, I found a bunch of pictures of art I did, but didn’t show you. So, I am hoping to start blogging again, even if it is only a couple pictures, and couple times a week. I was surprised how much I have missed blogging too. I can’t wait to get back in contact with the community.
So, here is one I dug up from the old archives…
