I haven’t really felt like blogging much lately. I have been very busy running back and forth to doctors’ appointments and such. Do I write about it, or not? Do people that stop by my blog for a dog biscuit recipe really care what’s going on? A few people have commented, and others have e-mailed me their concerns, but I haven’t really felt like writing about it.
So, here goes …
- My PCP sent me to a NEURO who noted all of my SX and sent me for MRIs and an LP and the DX is MS.
Seriously, you cannot make this crap up! Need a translation?
- My primary care physician sent me to a neurologist. After a bunch of visits, testing which included a couple of MRIs, extensive blood work, nerve tests, and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap), the preliminary diagnosis is Multiple Sclerosis.
My first reaction was: ” Shit!” My second reaction was: “Well Shit! At least I’m not going crazy!” My third reaction was: “Well, Shit! I guess its better to get this at 52 years of age than at 22.”
I could go on and on about the symptoms I’ve been having, but I won’t. I just want to tell everyone, I am not drunk, I just walk like I am. Weebles Wobble But They Don’t Fall Down. Well, not yet any way.
My dogs can tell that something is not right as they haven’t been getting their regular walks. Cosmo has taken to sitting on my feet all of the time, and Clover seems very needy at the moment always wanting to sit next to me on the couch with her head in my lap. I’m going to have to hire a dog walker pretty soon, or they might pack their bags and move to Florida to live with my parents. I wouldn’t blame them one bit.
