So I feel like I left you hanging. I could have cancer for all you know. Because I’m not a good friend and I’m a slacker and I haven’t given you a health update. I know! I’m sorry! I’ve been meaning to write a personal post for a while but things have been so busy this season, good busy, that I haven’t gotten around to it. But today it’s Wednesday, prayer night, and it makes me think about the things I’m grateful for. Health!
Well, the word on the street in that I’m normal. My blood work was normal, my MRI was normal, my MRA was normal. Just plain normal. And yes this is a good thing, it just puts me farther away from finding a solution. BUT no surgery, no dying, no cancer. Yay! I still have a pituitary adenoma (small tumor) but since it’s not causing any problems (because it’s been proven that I’m normal, remember?) they’re not going to remove it. I’ll need to have an annual MRI to track it and make sure there are no changes. But right now the plan is to try different things, one at a time, to see if we can find a “trigger”for my headaches.
Tonight, after finally being relieved of a 48 hour headache, it’s things like hanging out with my girls at the Little Dipper and sitting outside watching lightening shows like this that make it seem so insignificant. I mean look! We’re not as big as we think we are!
