Early MRI Results

I'm hungry, because an MRI scheduled at noon with a doctor follow-up at 2:00pm makes for a missed lunch, but I just got back and wanted to let you all know that my MRI looks like the other ones have, some things slightly smaller and other things the same. In other words, the anxiety and nausea that I've been feeling have no cause in my brain, as far as Dr Jason can see. In other words, my anxiety and nausea have most likely been causing each other. And I know that Dr Jason et al my Western doctors don't really believe Witch Doctor Dan is doing anything; but I happen to believe wholeheartedly that he can help end the cycle of anxiety and nausea. If only I could get in to see him, now that he's gotten so popular (okay, okay, I can—I have an appointment in less than two weeks, and I think I'll be able to survive until then).

To make sure we're keeping on top of things, my next MRI will be only six weeks away. This is not designed to keep me on edge; rather, Dr Jason wants to make sure, now that we're a year out, that if things do start to move, we'll catch them early, and try other things. I'm good with this plan, particularly as it continues to allow me to go to Austin at the end of this month, the San Juans at the beginning of July, and Dr Jason's parents' place in Idaho in mid-July (can't wait!).

Wow, two comments in the first 20 minutes. Some folks have clearly been watching like hawks. Only hawks usually only worry about catching mice, not whether their friends have growing lesions in the brain.

and thanks go to Liz, who's slaving away in our yard right now, releasing built-up tension by planting a bunch of plants that she brought from her garden along with a weed whacker from wonderful, generous Marsh.
