Just checking in...

I'm rocking steady around 120... I'm waiting until I'm cleared by the neuro before I do another round. I'd hoped to do one in May but may wait until August.

I'm sorry I've been so absent. I'm afraid I have a lot of catching up to do with you guys as well. I have a long weekend so guess what I'll be doing? :)

THIS had me laughing so hard I cried. It just gets better and better... xoxoxoxox

Good news!

I passed my neuro exam with flying colors! All signs point to normal. They didn't even bother ordering an MRI.

I have a call into the nurse asking what it was he thought I had. He told me, and it was a mouth full, but didn't write it down. It's hereditary. Basically, it's the outside nerves in my arms and legs that have damage to the coating around them which, when pressed just so, will cause a temporary lapse in signal. He did ask me if I'd recently lost a lot of weight. Interesting. I have an appointment to go back in 6 months, unless I have another episode and then I'm to call and get in right away where they can do some kind of electrical test on those nerves to make a definitive diagnosis.

I am relieved beyond belief. They did a series of tests that all pointed away from MS.

Thank you ALL for thinking of me today!!

Thank you all for the comments. Tomorrow we begin to unravel this mystery.

My appointment is SUPER early (7:30 am) with the neuro.

My incredible husband has taken tomorrow off and will drop me off and then drop the kids at school so I don't have to drive. This takes so much pressure off of me.

I'll post as soon as I know anything.

In the meantime, the daily funny. I LOVE Ruby.
