Update

Good Morning!

Well, I have never felt as frustrated as right now! I am still waiting on reports. I do have some information to share but not all. My ultrasound was normal so that is really good. My bone scan showed a fracture in my foot, that is healing. I had no idea I had done that, and my knee cap is unstable so I am being sent to an orthopedic. The MRI of my spine showed nerve damage and degenerative deteration the SI joints, the T12 L 1, 2 and 5 and the S1 so I am being sent to a neurologist for that as well. As for the CT of the skull? Your guess is as good as mine! The X-ray shows a mass, and you can definitely feel that there are 2 lumps close in proximately of each other. But when I had my CT last week the facility had everything topsy turvy. First they wouldn't do the CT with contrast because I was a diabetic so they did one without contrast, then they called me back almost 8 hours later ( admited they had things wrong) even though I had eaten ( you're not suppose to eat or drink anything for 4 hours prior) and did the contrast. I was literally in and out in 15 minutes. They did put the markers on finally after I reminded them. So I have been waiting on results since last Friday. They were only suppose to take 48 hours. The problem is that the results they sent over show nothing. Well that is confusing because the doctors can feel the nodules and the X-ray showed they are there just not clear enough to decide what they are. So I am dazed and confused.

I also am being sent to a lung specialist because my lungs are showing signs of problems. So all in all it could be worse. This is manageable. I wish they could give me as answer about what is growing on top of my skull. But prayfully soon. Until then I will just have to keep smiling I suppose.

As soon as I have clear picture I will let everyone know.

Love,
C

  4. What a lovely family photo you have placed above Christina.  
    Your boys are coming along splendidly. What handsome young men they are becoming.
    As for your test results..how frustrating for you to still be waiting for reports.  Surely these doctors must realise the stress there can be in waiting for the outcome of them?
    I hope things soon get a move on and that you get positive results.  
    As always and more so now, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Praying for you and your lovely family always.

    Much love
