I'll write about whatever crosses my mind.
well that is over with and boy was it a pain and very exhausting....the doc app didn't take that long but the CT scan that was a different story....they had to stick me seven different times and it it took four people trying to finally get the IV thing in.....we had to wait between people who came in to try....the problem was all my veins near the surface were to small....they finally used an ultrasound to find a deeper vein and as a guide to be sure it was inserted right.....that took almost a half hour to do....we got there at 11:00 and finally left at 4:00 to go to the doc app....we finally left Shands at about 5:00...after a 2 hour drive we finally got home....did stop at a nice place and got some dinner......the news was good the aneurism has not grown any so is still to small to outweigh the risks of surgery so doc won't operate.....go for another scan in 2 years....the thing I hate about these scans is I have had so many for different reasons and they all use a type of contrast dye that now I wake up the next day with such a bad headache I want to cry.........................

had another doc app today and that went good the new med for getting my blood sugar down seems to be working so instead of going back every month now I go back in 3 months and have lab work done too....didn't lower my insulin but at least he did not have to raise it again.......

wow...hadn't realized it has been so long since I have written anything...a lot has happened since the last time i was here....some good and happy and some not so good and sad....

things have not been going well with the going through my parents stuff but I will not talk about that expect to say it has been very hard and I fear I will start crying again............

since finding out about my brain aneurism I have been having a lot of trouble with my blood sugar being high...doc had to raise my insulin which has made me gain weight which has had him raise it more...also I have been having problem with swelling in my legs which hasn't helped my weight...doc put me on a pill to try to lower my sugar but that didn't work as well as he wanted it to so now he has me on a shot that has finally lowered my blood sugar...now he hopes to be able to lower my insulin and I can lose this weight I have gained.........

I still have my headaches from time to time...I just keep doing what the doc says and take the meds for them...still can't decide on the Botox shots for them........

the spot in my lung that doc has been watching for the past 2 years and thought may be cancer isn't and now I don't have to go for a CT scan every six months but doc says I will need to go back in a year just to be sure it still hasn't grown.........

now about the aneurism........I go back to Shands in a couple of days to have another brain scan and see the doc there...my nerves aren on end about that and making it hard to sleep again...will be glad to know what the verdict is again...am I going to have to live with this or will he say he will operate this time...I really don't want to go another year with this time bomb in my head not knowing if or when it may or my not leak or rupture............

I could say more but I am starting to feel down so maybe another time...............

on a good note....Dio and I were on the way to one of my doc appointments when something ran across the busy highway in front of us....when it stopped in a field in front of a bank we saw that it was a frightened kitten...we took her home intending on taking her to the shelter when we got home cause I was sure TJ would say we could not keep her...well by the time we got home TJ had fallen in love with Spunky...so we have a new baby in the family.............
