So does she or doesn't she...

  • Feeling... awake :)
  • Pondering... nothin much
  • Time spent writing... ummm...still just blog, but a lot of it
  • Days without sugar... it's 10 and I still haven't had any yet :) Sometimes it has to be a moment by moment thing.
Listening to Follow Me by Uncle Kracker

Earlier today, I posted about the doctor thinking maybe I had a brain tumor.  Several days later, I called about the results and the nurse said they were on the doc's desk, but he hadn't looked yet.  Hours later, she called back to confirm.  I did in fact have a brain.  Yup, it is such a relief knowing one is actually in there.  Phew.  I have evidence now for my husband.  It is, however, attached to a blonde head.  What does this mean?  It means this: I am intelligent, but I'm prone to dumb moments.  

Seriously, there was no brain tumor just as I knew it would be.  It is all sinus related.  Even now, I still struggle with the vertigo off and on, but not near as bad as it was.  It is nice to not walk into the walls (unless I'm having my one of my blonde moments) and I haven't fallen over in a while much to the disappointment of my family who were quite entertained by it. 

By the time I made it through the whole brain tumor mess and the vertigo eased, NaNoWriMo was history.  I probably will try again this year if nothing major is happening, but who says I have to wait until them?  I can still challenge myself any way I want and plan to do that.

Stay tuned this weekend for a recap of 2004 and a brand new blog look for 2005 with information and my plans for 2005.

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. I know brain tumor's aren't something to laugh about...humor is my way of handling stress. I hope I didn't scare you too bad. I am relieved I don't have one, too. It sure makes you think about life and LIFE. My son is such a sweetie and he sure helped me through as we snuggled and loved on each other. :)

I could almost feel my heart stop there. It brought back fresh memories of my friend Dodie. She did have a brain tumor, and died of it just a few days after my first miscarriage. I am SO relieved to hear that you did NOT have one too. Your dear son's having to unexpectedly deal with no nursing must have just broken your heart. But it was sweet to read how he slowly began to come around, and to shower his love on you just the same. So sweet. Glad to hear that they did find out what the problem was, and I hope you are feeling better totally, and soon.
