Do you know what happens when you go 3 months without blogging? All of your Followers' little heads disappear! That blows! My blogger dashboard still says that I have my fabulous 4 followers, but all their heads are gone. Bummer. Take a little break while your body falls apart and the next thing you know, the Followers list is blank. But maybe now that I'm posting something again, they'll miraculously reappear. I tell you, you just can't trust technology. If it can't feed me or bathe me in chocolate, I don't trust it.
I see we're all still here after the Rapture didn't happen on Saturday. I was just starting to feel a little bit smug about that this morning when I heard about the tornado damage and lives lost in Joplin, Missouri on Sunday. Took the bite right out of me. Then, I got all paranoid wondering if maybe the date was wrong by just one day.
So we're up to 69 tubes of blood now and I've filled the little cup two more times. Tomorrow afternoon, I'm getting a TB test, and sometime tomorrow I'll get the results of last week's tests. I spent the day at Christ Hospital last Tuesday getting lit up with nuclear medicine, then having a full body bone scan, and finally having an MRI and then an MRA of my brain. It was a busy day, you know? I just stayed at the hospital all day since I had to report there at 11:00, 2:00, and 5:30. I had lunch there and took a book to read. I also had a half hour nap.
Nope, I don't know what all they're looking for. Evidently, no brain tumors or anything cancerous looking showed up, or they would have notified me long before now. So that's something to be mighty thankful for. But I do hope something shows up that gives us a diagnosis. I've been at this for 13 months now and all I get is more pain and more tired. I'm ready to get off this train.
On the Happy Front, though, the better half and I are headed to New York City next week for a few days of fun and no doctors. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.
I've been trying to come up with something funny to say, but my humorous bone doesn't seem to be working. :-) I haven't been posting much because I'm just too tired, so it may be another 3 months before I'm back again. (Except I will get on here tomorrow night and post the test results.)
Thank you all for hanging in there with me!
