Ok, believe me, I am not losing my mind. This year has just really, for lack of better words "sucked"! Rather than wait till January, I am starting my New Years as of today! Tomorrow will be my 3rd Spark Anniversary & there is no better time for a fresh start!
As far as my health issues, things are still kind of inconclusive. I am back in the Diabetic Range & my Potassium levels are high so they reran the blood work yesterday to double check it. The blood pressure medication does nothing for me but give me the blahs & after consistent monitoring, they are considering maybe doing a Heart Monitor Study (once again-lol!). Also my Thyroid levels have gone wonky. 20 years ago I started out on .112 MCG then through the years went up to .125. The DR at the hospital said my tests were too high & dropped it down to .100. So that also accounts for the weight gain. The tests I had done last week, my DR wanted to drop it down to .88. It is like my body is going in reverse-lol! As far as the aneurysm, the jury is still out on that one. The DR I saw at the hospital who told me I had it, is no longer practicing there & we have been unable to locate him. Maybe he saw something there the radiologist missed & maybe that is why he referred me to another Radiologist at a different hospital. I know they sure misread Larry's tests several times! But from the first report there are Tortuous veins & arteries in the basil region. This new DR, I do not have a whole lot of faith in. I asked him why when I had a CT scan done last year, they did not show up then so why now & he could not give me an answer. I also asked him why the hospitals diagnosis was Paresthesia & Dysarthria & what they mean (although I had already done my homework-lol) & he just kind of blew me off. So there it is!!. It has been a frustrating & emotional month for me but I have a renewed sense of determination. I guess it is up to me to fix myself-lol! Like the Phoenix, I will rise again, better & stronger!
So here is to new beginnings-again
Love & Hugs to you all!
