I have no finished product to show, but I do have a finished task.....
The big event of the day was a visit with a good neurologist (after the rehab doctor decided to pull some strings, thank goodness!) Lately, the wait to see a neurologist in our city (or maybe the entire state) has been three to six months.
The neurologist thinks my headaches are due solely to stress.
Although neither of the other doctors would do so, he showed me my MRI
and assured me that I have never, ever had a stroke (as the radiologist,
the rehab doctor, and the worker's comp case manager were saying as they
made excuses for not being more helpful) and that there are two tiny
spots in my brain from broken blood vessels consistent with my diabetes
but my brain is not riddled with ischemic disease as they were saying.
I hope the relief of knowing that will help with the horrible headaches
(although it hasn't helped yet). I didn't realize what a heavy burden
that was, so I'm hoping things get better now.
I'm expecting that when I see the doctor again on Sept. 27 that he will
say I can work full days again.
I also stopped at the Habitat for Humanity Resale shop and found a hutch
for the top of my buffet (I've been looking for one for close to 15
years) and a small chest that will work in our main bathroom (so I'm
hoping to get them sanded and painted in the next few days). Big
expenditure: $30 total! I have never found good buys like that before, so I
am thrilled. (Of course, the hutch went into my car very, very easily
and is balking at coming out--and Sweet Teen is at a football game, so
it will have to wait until morning unless I get a sudden burst of problem solving ability and extra muscle.)
I'd like to think of today as my lucky day.
