I find I'm communicating more through Facebook, email and here on the blog, than I am by phone these days.
I had an appt. with a neurologist today, and these are the basic findings...
1. She does not think that what I'm dealing with is MS. My dear friend who was just diagnosed with MS, is not so sure.
2. I have to have more testing done. EEG, another MRI in a month or so, and some other tests that I don't remember the name of. ...they are designed to test the memory, so I find it pretty funny that I can't recall the name. :)
3. I asked her for a best and worse case scenario.
Best: this could be as "simple" as the remaining issues from having had Epstein-Barr. Evidently, even a virus can cause a lesion to form on the brain.
Worst: a brain tumor.
Say it with me, in your best Arnorld voice, "It's NOT a TUMOR!"
So, we wait, and we pray, and we see what next week and next month hold.
Thank you for praying. So many of you have written or called to say that you are, and I want you to know, I cherish each prayer, and am humbled by your graciousness.
A precious friend of mine called to pray with me today, and in our conversation, she reminded me that even the waiting is part of God's plan, and she encouraged me not to dismiss the waiting time.
I loved that!
So right on!
You're a sweetie!
